My name is Joy, and when I grow up, I want to be a writer. It's my greatest dream to see my work in print (preferably with pretty covers), and I am steadily working my way towards that goal. When I'm not writing, I'm usually reading, whether it's a classic (oh, hi there, Jane Eyre), or fantasy novels for preteens (Gail Carson Levine anyone? Gilda Joyce mysteries, perhaps?). I'm also one of those people that has a hard time settling on things; I love to dabble. I paint with watercolours, and I'm always looking for new techniques, and I buy big coffee table books of art because I used to be an Art History major, and even though I'm not anymore, I still love looking at art. I crochet like a granny, and buy fabric just because the print is nice (I'm not very good at sewing). I work for a children's theatre company as a director, stage manager, and camp counsellor. It's the best job I could ask for (other than being a writer of course!). I bring my camera most places, and I have an obsession with taking pictures of things in windows. I love rooms full of natural light. I think I was born in the wrong time, but what can you do?
