Not only will we all, AALG ( www.authorsallies.com ) and Gillian Joy be signing the contract within minutes of each other on Saturday, 3rd October 2015 but we will also be celebrating the birthday of Gillian joy.
So let me introduce you to the author;
Gillian Joy is a 46 year old mother of two who designs houses for a living and lives to write. She grew up in the Western Suburbs of Sydney Australia, the eldest of five children. She had two younger brothers and two, much younger sisters. One of her brothers died when she was only nineteen. No Chance to say Goodbye, release to be announced, is his story.
She once had a boss who remarked she had a hard life, but she states she never actually saw it that way. “Life is what it is,” she says. She had food, clothes, a roof over her head and a family who loved her. “What’s hard about that?”
These days she lives on the Mornington Peninsula, south east of Melbourne Australia where she spends as much of limted spare time as she can either with her nose in a book or writing on her phone or tablet.
“I love it here, there aren’t too many places in the world that with less than a ten minute drive you can watch the sun rise over the water, or you can watch the sun set over the water, and there’s just something extra special about watching the sunset over the beach, something dreamy and romantic.” Gillian lives with her husband, two beautiful but wilful children, a few fish and a very spoilt English Staffie named Cleo.
Gillian Joy is a proud Australian, who loves bbq’s, thongs (worn on the feet) and vegimite sandwiches and calls her friends, “Mate”.
