As a working nurse, Joy Wood has been creating stories in her head for years, but never found the time to do anything with them – life just got in the way somehow. Five years ago, she was made redundant and moved to the picturesque seaside town of Cleethorpes in Lincolnshire. She loves nothing better than walking along the seafront and thinking up ideas for stories. Joy’s debut novel was written by Joy ‘just to see if she could really,’ – she had no idea it would sell like it did and continues to do so.

Knight & Dey
A hospital romance with a difference. Someone dies on the first page and it isn’t from a surgical procedure. Joy hasn’t given away the gender of the victim, nor the gender of the assailant. The idea is for the reader to engage with each character in the book, trying to decide which one dies, and who did it. Joy states the reader will never guess the ending . . .
