About Joyce


I live in Wayzata, Minnesota, with my husband and our dog, Watson, whom we both 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 you can drive on the ice (I’ve only done it once).


My husband and 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.
