A Bit About Me
Joy K. Ball is a busy pediatrician, wife, and mother. She feels fortunate to have spent several years living in Arizona, in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, where she and her family loved exploring the vast variety of plants and animals. Having lived most of her earlier life in the Southeast, Joy was amazed to see the desert actually bloom in spring! Her debut children's book, Winnie Goes to School, was inspired by an event that occurred one dazzling spring day when a feathered friend attempted to join her daughter’s first-grade class.
Joy currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband and 2 teenage daughters.
