Joyce is a long-time Maleny resident and writer whose short stories have been broadcast and published in magazines and an anthology.
With a passion for history she has now written, under her pen name of Joy Richards, her first historical fiction novel, ‘The Healer’s Daughter’.
Set amidst the conflict raging in 16th century England, ‘The Healer’s Daughter’ embraces universal themes of love, lust and suppression, along with otherworldly elements and set against the backdrop of a country being torn apart.
It is the story of Hannah, an eighteen year old nun and skilled herbalist caught up in the turmoil of the Dissolution of the Monasteries who is forced to flee her convent. She is given for safekeeping a rare and valuable manuscript: a book with a secret that will change her life and put her in utmost danger.
