About Joyce Burd Hicks
After a university career in the Midwest, I’ve joined the many of the Boomer generation who write, do improv, blog, or found non-profits. My novel Escape from Assisted Living, grew from my interest in the minutiae of family life, particularly at gateways to new stages. I’m definitely an observer in public space of the serious, mundane, or hilarious interchanges of strangers. I also like first person narrative story-telling and have joined in a few performances.
Quilting, knitting, weaving and gardening are other pursuits I love, and of course, spending time with my grandchildren and husband are the best times of life.
Please join conversations on Betty’s Blog, where the main character in Escape from Assisted Living and her friends talk about later life and family. They would love to hear your comments.
