About joy


 Joy is a children’s book author, musician, and a mother, which she considers her most important job. She spent many years studying and writing music and transitioned to strictly writing for children when her son was born in 2007. But, musical and lyrical quality can always  be found in her picture books.


  Joy’s stories focus on kindness, empathy, diversity and love and respect for each other and this beautiful planet that we all share.  She not only wants to entertain, but empower the young readers and honor their curiosity and wonder. 


Joy's published works include Ruby Lee, Echoes, Fireflies, The Spirit Bunnies, Patches and the Spirit Bunnies, and Rock and the Fly. She has been a featured author at several reading events, book festivals, and stores such as Barnes & Noble. In her efforts to create a fun and interactive experience for the children, she built a “bunny cave” complete with puppets, and an original soundtrack for The Spirit Bunnies readings. This enhanced her live show to bring an immersive experience of the magical world of the Spirit Bunnies to the kids! She believes in the pure Joy of imagination and creativity.
