Joyce DeBacco


After many years reading women’s fiction, Joyce decided to write her own. As the mother of four grown daughters, she has intimate knowledge of the problems women face finding love, raising children, and stepping back when necessary. She is happiest when she’s secluded in her office creating new worlds and people to populate them.

When she’s not taxing her brain with plot, structure, and grammar, she likes to sew, particularly quilts. When she really wants to give her brain a rest, she watches TV. Please visit her website, for information about other books she’s written as well as sample chapters.
