Joy Wood is a positive, enthusiastic author living in the beautiful seaside town of Cleethorpes in Lincolnshire. She is passionate about the NHS (and runs it from her armchair!) and spends her leisure time reading, walking, socialising and travelling. She loves cruising and can often be found in the ships’ libraries with passengers who are always looking for books; she has been known to drop into the conversation that she writes. Her greatest desire is to see someone on relaxing on a ship reading one of her novels.
Joy is a great ambassador for independent publishing and has written and produced five novels (For the Love of Emily) (Knight & Dey) (Chanjori House) (April Fool) (Who’s Smiling Now?). She travels around Lincolnshire delivering a humorous talk about how she made the transition from nurse to author (From Bedpan to Pen!).
Joy recently won a competition to meet the prolific writer, Barbara Taylor Bradford in London. Tempting as it was to gift Barbara a book – she held herself back!
