Joy Ross Davis is more than an eloquent story teller! A college professor, mother, daughter of Irish descent whose family settled in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee, Joy loves all things Irish, including the Green Isle itself. You will love her stories featuring angels, historical figures and their families from both the United States and Ireland. Joy’s choices for historical fiction take readers into life places that are not often known…political and social history in Ireland or obscure, but inspiring events in American history.

I am a teacher and I love to share what I have learned. I work with the University of Phoenix Online and absolutely love it.
As a photographer who always has a camera, I am able to bring photos of settings and places that bring further inspiration to my writing and teaching.
Dogs are another love — 3 REAL fur-buddies, Murphy, Sophie and Maddy Lou help me get the words in the right order. The characters in Countenance find their lives enriched by a special dog.
Be a dreamer with me! I dream of writing first which has a natural progression to publication. But I will write the dream today and pursue dreams for tomorrow!
