Joyce Ackley

I am a senior citizen, a retired teacher living in sunny Florida. I have self-published one novel, The Heart Always Knows, which is available on Amazon in both Kindle and print form.

I have just begun work on my second novel, and currently, still in the stage of character development. The new novel will be Women's Fiction, like my first novel.

My youngest daughter lives here in Lakeland. My three grandchildren, ages 19, 13, and 10, bring me a great deal of joy. During the pandemic this year, I haven't been able to see them nearly as much as I'd like.

Basil and Sara, my two cats, are my furry kids and are spoiled rotten. Basil is 17 years old, and Sara was about 5 when I adopted her from a shelter two years ago.

My life is simple, my lifestyle modest, my footprint on earth small. I love simple things: cats, coffee, sunsets, clouds, night skies, flowers, lazy days and rainy nights, a big, comfy T-shirt and pj pants. I love good books. My friends and family mean a lot to me, and I cherish them.
