Fabulous Author Friday – Linda Joyce

2016_10_07-linda-joyce-pictureMeet the lovely Linda Joyce. When I say lovely, I mean it in every sense. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her in an author and non-author atmosphere. She is enlightening, engaging, and brings a smile to my face. Such a delight to be around. If you have not read her books yet, you are at a loss. Linda brings her characters to life and her writing style surrounds you, placing you in the setting and feel of her stories. Please welcome her, and show her some love.

I’m going to start with one of my favorite books of Linda’s. This book touched me in many ways. At the time I read it, Linda and I had not met, but I felt as if the words she wrote were for me. This book contributed to my healing at a very rough time in my life. I’m positive that when you read this book, you will be touched.

About Linda:

Writing in the bleachers of a mostly bare playground in Japan where girls lined up to read pages gave award-winning author Linda Joyce “writing fever.” Before her foray into authorship, she graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Management, then spent her next years in corporate America. Her debut romance novel, Bayou Born is a 2014 RONE Award finalist. Her second novel, Bayou Bound won 1st Place in Romance from the Southeastern Writers Association.

Linda also writes short stories and poetry. She’s most proud of Arctic Arkansas published by Missouri Writer’s Guild in Storm Country: The Anthology, which raised money for the Joplin School District after a F4 tornado wiped out the town, and her poem, True American Music featured in by the Johnson County Historical Society with the Smithsonian’s traveling exhibit: With New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music. She served as the Vice President of Whispering Prairie Press and the Creative Director for Kansas City Voices, a literary magazine.

Linda’s Cajun roots intertwine with her Asian ones. She graduated with a business degree from the University of Florida, where she met and married her husband. They reside in Atlanta. She’s an avid traveler, foodie, music fan, and dog lover with three four-legged boys, General Beauregard, Gentleman Jack (RIP) and Masterpiece Renoir (RIP). Linda is a member of Romance Writers of America, Georgia Romance Writers, Atlanta Writer’s Club, and Southern Writers Association. She enjoys speaking about writing and has presented workshops at the Writer’s Academy at West Texas A&M University, WWP Conference and RWA Nationals.
