of the amulet. 
Her amulet.

most.

Powerful. Immortal. We are Bacchae.”

Stephanie
Mirro’s lifelong love of ancient mythology led to majoring in the
Classics in college, which wasn’t quite as much fun as writing her
own mythology stories as she did as a child. But that education,
combined with an overactive imagination and being an avid fantasy
reader, resulted in a writing career.

 

 

Starting
her days with coffee and ending them with wine means Stephanie can
usually be found juggling household chores, keeping the kids alive,
and trying to write, edit, publish, and market the stories that haunt
her dreams.

 

 

Born
and raised in Southern Arizona, Stephanie now resides in Northern
Virginia with her husband, two kids, and two furbabies. This thing
called “seasons” is still magical.

Joy Heyer lives in Virginia with her loving husband and three of her four crazy children. Her oldest child now has a child of her own, making Joy a grandma. 


Her family recently convinced her to get a dog. What was she thinking? The dog now follows Joy everywhere, waits loyally at the front window every time she leaves the house, and goes berserk when she comes back, even if she was only gone for 10 seconds to get the mail. 


In her spare time….wait, what spare time? Whenever her children and dog permit, she loves to read, write, paint, and dream up home improvement projects.

 

Duck, Duck, Moose is a very cute book by Joy Heyer about a duck who is sad because he misses his friend Goose. The story is simple, yet perfect for ages 0 to 2+ years-old. It is also done as a rhyme which it makes the story come alive with its matching sounds. It should attract little ones and their parents alike.

I enjoyed the colors on each page as they depicted the mood of the sad duck. It does, however, have some brighter colors sprinkled throughout the story to make it colorful and interesting for the child. The drawings are superb and quite likeable. This is a great book for any home.

Author Interview: Joy Heyer

Book: Duck, Duck, Moose

 

 

When did you start writing, and was there a specific event or person who influenced you to become an author? I started writing 10 years ago. My friend, Lezlie Evans, an author of many children’s books, invited me to join her writers group. Since then Lezlie has been teaching and encouraging me to write and illustrate my stories.

Do you have a favorite author? I really like Kevin Henkes. His characters have so much personality, both in the text and illustrations!

What is some of your favorite or memorable books that you’ve read? I love the book “Each Peach Pear Plum” by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. It was my favorite to read to my kids when they were little and now I read it to my granddaughter! The illustrations and rhymes are wonderful and the “hide and seek” of the characters is fun.

What is one piece of advice you could give to a new author that you wish someone had passed to you? It takes a lot of hard work, practice, and dedication to be good at writing and illustrating. Who knows where I would be now if I had followed that advice from the beginning.

Do you have any pets? Yes. I have a very loyal dog and for whatever reason, he has picked me as his favorite. He runs past the rest of the family to get to me every time, much to their chagrin.

What do you do in your spare time when you’re not writing? Spare time? What spare time? When I’m not drawing, writing, or being mom, I love to dream up home improvement projects. Maybe someday I will have time to do them!

What is the best vacation you ever went on? I just went on a Mediterranean cruise with my husband to celebrate our 25th anniversary. It was the best.

Are you currently working on a project, and if so, can you tell us anything about it? I continue to draw every day (practice, practice, practice!) and I have some stories that I’m perfecting. I have great plans for these future books!
