A New York City transplant now living in Seattle, Joyce began her writing life at the age of seventeen. While riding the bus through Manhattan’s Lower East Side, she jotted down poems that were soon to be published by a literary magazine in Brooklyn. This early publication was all the encouragement Joyce needed to begin her life as a writer. Little did she know that one day she’d morph from a poet and songwriter into a novelist.

Her published books include ASK THE DEAD (Martin Brown), RUSSIAN RECKONING (Istoria Books). RIVERS RUN BACK, co-authored with Arindam Roy (Vitasta, New Delhi) and ZAHARA AND THE LOST BOOKS OF LIGHT (Adelaide Books, NY Dec 2020).

Joyce is a Pushcart Prize Nominee with short stories and essays that have appeared in Inkwell Journal, Whistling Shade, Descant, Arabesques, and Weber: The Contemporary West and the Los Angeles Review of Books.
