About Joy Wodhams

I've enjoyed writing as long as I can remember and at the age of seven produced my first magazine, selling it to my friends for one old penny. Several decades later I became a real magazine editor and went on to sell short stories and features on a regular basis to national magazines. I come from quite a creative family (five generations of theatre and circus gymnasts, trapeze artists, singers, musicians and songwriters) but I'm rubbish on a trapeze, I can't sing or dance or even crack a joke without forgetting the punchline. However, I am a painter and art tutor, and most of all I love to write, so I hope some of you out there will be able to pass a happy hour with one or more of my books. Seven of these are available on Amazon Kindle: Three adult novels (AFFAIR WITH AN ANGEL, THE RELUCTANT BRIDE and NEVER SLEEP WITH A NEIGHBOUR), two collections of short stories (THE FLOATER and THE GIRL AT TABLE NINE) and two novels for children aged 9 to 13, A LION CALLED BUSTER and THE MYSTERY OF CRAVEN MANOR. Oh, and if you're interested in taking up the pen, laptop or tablet and having a go yourself, do take a look at my creative writing blog, THE WRITER'S DESK, at, where you'll find tips on how to improve your writing more
