Joy Lee Rutter moved to New Hampshire from Florida in September of 1996. During her adjustment period to a new environment, she began keeping a journal on her very first evening in Ossipee. Eventually, it led her into “tongue-in-cheek” humor essays and the rest is history. She could not stop writing. Many of her essays have appeared on her websites.
After acclimatizing to the severe changes in seasons, she began kayaking in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter; writing has been an on again, off again passion.
Her day job as a Rehabilitation Specialist in a traumatic brain injury facility is the basis for her next book, already 26,000 words strong. Besides her job, her writing, and promoting her second book, Joy Lee keeps busy with her husband, two teenage sons, and her cat Mugzi.
