After scoring an honorable mention in the 77th Annual Writer's Digest Writing Competition in 2008 for her short story, Sacred Fear, Joyce Palmer began her journey toward a career in fiction writing. An avid reader of romantic fiction and a firm believer in education, Joyce is in her final year of study toward a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing at Southern New Hampshire University. She is scheduled to begin her graduate studies in the fall, 2016. Joyce is an active and experienced critiquer, worked for a short period as a content editor, and on occasion, volunteer judges in writing competitions. She is a member of Romance Writer's of America and a proud member of the international English honor society, Sigma Tau Delta.
Joyce has always been a lover of romance, preferring to write in her favorite genre, sensual/erotic romance. For over thirty years, she has been happily married to her personal hero, and they have a son. They live in southwest Florida where she writes fast-paced contemporary romances with feisty heroines and Alpha heroes. There is always a happily-ever-after. Joyce believes her characters are enhanced and their humanity further developed through intimate and explicit sexual detail. All relationships are heterosexual and monogamous. She currently has five other erotic romance titles available where electronic books are sold.
