Joy Moore is a home photographer, author, poet and editor for picture books. This is how her story began.
The short version.
At age eight Joy Moore decided she wanted to be a writer. In keeping with that pursuit she wrote story after story after story. She also asked her family to read story after story after story. They got tired and asked her to stop.
At age 12 Joy Moore was published in her junior high school news letter.
Her parents wanting the best, thought that she was a normal child and should experience all things normal. What they did not know or understand was that Joy Moore was very different.
Joy Moore was not exceptionally smart. She was not particularly pretty. To all outside observers she appeared to be average. But she was oddly observant. This enabled her to see things others missed. She decided to use this skill in photography.
In addition, Joy Moore loves writing. But she loves building others up even more. That is why she has taken the necessary courses to become a developmental editor and line editor for picture books.
