Welcome and thanks for stopping by!

I'm Joyce Yarrow, avid bird-watcher and author of novels of suspense that, according to Library Journal, “appeal to readers who enjoy unusual mysteries with an international setting.”

 

I was born in the SE Bronx and escaped to Manhattan as a teenager. Today, I reside in Seattle and travel the world to enrich my writing. I consider the settings of my books to be characters in their own right and enjoy teaching workshops on The Place of Place in Suspense Writing.

I've  also worked as a screenwriter, singer-songwriter, multimedia performance artist, and member of the world music vocal ensemble, Abráce.

I'm grateful to be a Pushcart nominee, whose stories and poems have been widely published.

 

My coming-of-age, crime novel SANDSTORM, was recently awarded a CIPA/Evvy gold medal.
