Joyce started writing at an early age when her mother told her to write down her thoughts, crumple up the paper, and throw it away. Little did she know her mother read each and every one! Joyce self-published her first book of short stories March, 2014 at the urging of her high school gal pals whom she reconnected with last fall after forty-five years of silence. Although her profession is that of a visual arts teacher, she finds writing to be a fresh creative outlet that she enjoys immensely.
What did you want to be when you grew up? Encounters 5 contains the story, Que Sera, Sera, a humorous peek at a girl's childhood dreams. It is a baby boomer looking back at her life, educational for the non boomers and nostalgic for the rest of us.
Four true humorous short stories about people who encounter and overcome some of life's obstacles. However small the problem Mountaineer, Racquetman, Oldtimer, and Farmer will find solutions and delight the reader.
Encounters 2 is another delightful, although embellished, true story about encounters with critters. You will love this new character who refuses boredom, dares to take control of her own fate, finds her place in the world and dreams to do the impossible.
