Joyce was born and raised in the Philippines. She started as a nurse educator before going into full-time hospital work and had a go at administrative jobs for a while. She currently lives in the south of England and is devoting more time to writing. When she isn’t deleting awful first drafts, she’s helping out at her local bookshop and raiding the biscuits in the pantry.

All the Lines
Oh to bask in the sun and escape this roof
To inhale the fragrance of earth
To be rid of these walls that confine my thoughts
To find peace like it was at my birth
Oh the things I would give for a day of rest
From the constant struggles of youth
To remember the reason I live and breathe
And to pause for a moment of truth
In the morning I wake and a year has passed
Has it really taken this long?
In the blink of an eye all the time has gone
And I've missed all the lines of the song.
