JOY SMITH, Author
As an author, I'm a late bloomer. It wasn't until my responsibilities eased up that I decided to put together a cookbook as a wedding gift to my oldest child. I collected old photos, wrote captions, and then started to relate family stories. My "gift" ended up as a 250 page, spiral-bound cookbook photocopied 50 times to hand out to all my relatives and friends. (No such thing as apps back then.)
From that time on, I've done my best to pass on information intended to make life easier for others. My nautical books, THE PERFECT FIRST MATE and KITCHEN AFLOAT, are loaded with practical info as well as hard facts.
I've never stopped developing and writing down recipes, so it made sense to share them in my EMPTY NEST COOKBOOK. And, after surviving three clustered weddings, I just had to pass helpful planning info to other mothers with OH, NO, THEY'RE ENGAGED!
In between adult books, I love writing stories for my grandchildren,Juvenile Fiction,I believe it's called. I hope you will enjoy sharing SEAGULLS DON'T EAT WORMS with your little ones ages three to eight.
You should know, however, that my true love is fiction-writing. My romantic suspense, GREEN FIRE was released early 2013. I am overhauling a paranormal romance and a sea-going tale, and venturing into crime writing.
I would love to hear from you!
