There are a lot of Joyce McDonalds out there, and some of them are even writers, like me. It can be pretty confusing.
Just so we're on the same page, you've reached the site of Joyce McDonald, author of Swallowing Stones and several other young adult and middle grade novels. If you were looking for another Joyce McDonald, say the politician from Pierce County, Washington, or the Georgia realtor, or the physician from Michigan (who also happens to have the same middle initial), I wish you well in your continued search. Or, if you're curious about this Joyce McDonald, I hope you'll stick around for a while.
