Joylynn M. Jossel
Joylynn M. Jossel is a writer, now writing as E. N. Joy.
After thirteen years of being a paralegal in the insurance industry, Joy finally divorced her career and married her mistress and her passion; writing. In 2000, Joy formed her own publishing company, End of the Rainbow Projects, where she published her own books until landing a book deal with a major publisher. Under End of the Rainbow, Joy has published New York Times and Essence Magazine Bestselling authors In the Sinner Series.
In 2004, Joy branched off into the business of literary consulting in which she provides one-on-one consulting and literary services such as ghostwriting, editing, professional read-throughs, and write behinds. Her clients consist of first-time authors, bestselling authors, and entertainers.
Not forsaking her love of poetry, in which she has published two works of poetry titled Please Tell Me If the Grass is Greener and World On My Shoulders, Joy plans to turn her focus back to poetry one day. 'But lately my spirit has been moving in another direction,' Joy says. Needless to say, Joy will no longer be penning street lit (in which two of her titles made the Essence Magazine bestsellers list one of those titles also having been translated into Japanese), erotica or adult contemporary fiction. Instead, under the name E.N. Joy, she will be penning adult Christian fiction, and under the name N. Joy, she will be penning children's and young adult titles. Joy's children's story, The Secret Olivia Told Me, is an American Library Association Coretta Scott King Award Winner. Book club rights have also been purchased by Scholastic and the book is on tour at Scholastic Book Fairs in schools across the country.
Joy says: "I have matured both as a writer and spiritually. My walk in life has changed, therefore my writing has changed. I hope the dedicated following of readers I've been so blessed to have earned while writing as Joylynn M. Jossel will decide to take this spiritual journey in the written word with me as I shift to pen what God has called me to do."
