Hi, I'm Joyce. I'm an author/illustrator and the regional co-advisor for SCBWI San Francisco-South. Originally from Miami, Florida, I lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan for quite a few years and now live in a small town in Northern California with my family, a bearded dragon and a house panther named Mr. Ray. Previously, I was a college radio DJ, toy and activity book designer, children's animation instructor, elementary science teacher, and roller derby referee. Currently, I am writing and illustrating while finding joy in being present. XOXO
