Joy Lynn Goddard is one of Canada’s top novelists in the young adult genre. Beginning with the award-winning Daredevils, she hooks readers with characters who are real—the “jock,” the “brain,” the “mean girl”— and with contemporary themes that are important to teens—Internet safety, bullying, peer pressure, dating, mental health. She has also written a middle-grade novel, a picture book and a collection of humourous short stories, with her husband, Dan. A former journalist, she has had numerous articles and short stories published. She divides her time between Guelph and Prince Edward County, Ontario, where she teaches, writes and spends time with her family. Most recently she published Moonshadow (June 2019), a story of love, family and reconciliation. More at https://www.joygoddard.com/
