About Joyce


I live in Wayzata, Minnesota, with my dog, Watson, whom I dote on beyond reason. Minnesota is a good place to live, because it has lots of lakes and trees, and gets so cold in the winter that the beautiful white snow lasts all season long.


I have two sons. They are grown up now, and always doing interesting things. I learn as much from them as I ever learned in school. Other facts: I love to take walks and notice things, details that often end up in my poems. I love talking to kids, because they are honest and funny. I love sunny mornings, which make me feel as though I can do anything. I feel incredibly lucky to be doing what I always dreamed of: creating books.
