Joyce grew up in Minnesota and attended college and grad school in Chicago. After working in mental health, she retired at a relatively young age to write full-time. Her first book, Eliza, was published in 2012. Since then she has written three more books, all part of the Cady Delafield series. When she isn't writing mysteries or historical romances, she loves to swim, bicycle, and do crossword puzzles. In 2015, she was a winner of the Hearts Through History contest for the best hero in a yet to be published book entitled, Amaryllis.
