Meet Joyce DeBacco
Everyone needs some kind of creative outlet, and I think I've tried them all. I took up the piano a few years ago, having abandoned it as a child. But after two years of lessons, I realized that piano is much easier to learn when you're young. Now, whenever I want to hear soul-stirring piano music, I put on Yanni or some of the classical pieces I love.
My other interests are sewing, which I've enjoyed ever since my grandmother showed me how to sew two pieces of cloth together without any stitches showing. Grandma is gone now, but I always think of her when I make that stitch. Because my need for clothes is minimal—think shorts and tank tops—I turned my skill to curtains, washable slipcovers, and mending. Then I discovered machine quilting. Love it. But, alas, I've run out of beds and wall space in my house.
But throughout all my creative endeavors I've always returned to my first love, writing. Although SERENDIPITY HOUSE is my first published novel, like most writers, I have others taking up space in a drawer. Every so often I take one out, dust it off, and polish it up.
