About Joy Bassetti-Kruger

I began my library career at the Jhb. public library, and while I worked there part time, I also completed my Library Exams with the SALA. Then I was headhunted by Ekom, as I'd specialized in information retrieval and they needed someone to obtain current information on various projects for their engineers. Later I moved to Control Data, where I learned all about storing such information on their large computers.
All the while, I also taught ballet, modern and Spanish, dancing in my spare time, as I'd trained as a dance teacher while still at school. After I married I ran two dancing studios for adults, where I also began to teach yoga and passive exercises. In my youth I danced for PACT for a while, but as I was still studying at the time, -I decided to give this up, although I continued to dance in various productions at the Civic Theater in Johannesburg. -Showboat, The Merry Widow, Guys and Dolls, to name a few.
As I'd also joined two writing circles previously, I'd been writing all along, - mostly short stories. But then an opportunity came up for me to include English Literature and Creative Writing in my studies, so this is when my writing career really took off, even though I never published anything until recently, when I first uploaded stories on a local SA site,then Kindle, Kobo and now finally that I've cracked the 'meat-gringer," I've loaded some new stories on to Smashwords, which I think is a really wonderful site for writers, as it forces us to confront all the issues and make certain that everything is correct..

Its also about the imaginative ways she uses her Teddy to cover her brilliance, by pretending that he taught her to read and write, which does not go down to well with her mother.
