Joy’s primary editor is her cat, Tolkien. He hopes one day she’ll improve. Any improvement, however small, would be grand in his estimation.
Both of Joy’s children learned to write with the same fat Snoopy pencil she did.

Joy won Camp NaNo on her first attempt in 2018. She began the challenge with just over 30,000 words and ended the month just past 95,000. That is how Any Good Thing was birthed.

One of Joy’s short stories, “Ealiverel Awakened,” won second place in a competition. Her work, along with many others’, appears in The Crux Anthology, an Adventure SciFi and Fantasy collection edited by Rachael Ritchey. All profits benefit Compassion International. Joy’s short story will one day be part of a much larger fantasy series of books she is currently world-building.

Her biggest writing accomplishment to date remains penning the cover story for the August 2003 issue of Leatherneck, Magazine of the Marines. It featured her brother, Justin.
