Joyce Lamb is not only a fantastic writer and a good friend, she has long been an advocate for her fellow writers by initiating the Happy Ever After Blog at USA Today.   (See post from the beginnings of HEA by clicking this link)

If you've ever met Joyce you'll instantly pick up on her faster than the speed of light wit. I really enjoy her sense of humor.  And her kind heart.   

Joyce's wonderful surprise came when she won the Romantic Times Melinda Helfer Fairy Godmother Award for being a huge supporter of the romance genre through HEA. A VERY BIG DEAL... And Joyce certainly deserves this award since she works tirelessly behind the scenes to promote romance writers and their books.

If you haven't stopped by to read some of the wonderful reviews and blog posts at HEA, click on the link above and visit the USA Today HEA Blog today.

Joyce is also a well known author in her own right.  To find her books (at most booksellers) or go here   

Joyce's second novel, Caught in the Act was a 2004 RITA finalist in the romantic suspense category, and True Vision (book 1 in the True trilogy) won a Daphne du Maurier award for romantic suspense and a HOLT Medallion for Best Book by a Virginia Author. Find out more about Joyce at her Web site   (Taken from Joyce's Amazon bio).

Kudos to you Joyce!

  3. Oh, so very well deserved, Joyce!

  4. Awww, thank you, Lina!!! Speaking of good friends and kind hearts. :) And the award is really the cherry on top of my HEA sundae -- so fun to do and so rewarding! And thank you, Linda, Nora, Helena and Kathleen for the congrats! I'm blushing (though that could be a hot flash, hard to tell sometimes). Hugs!!!

  5. Ack -- Norah with an H! Sorry about that. (Copy editor alert!)

  6. As a long ago recipient of some of Melinda Helfer's munificence, I can state this is indeed quite an honor! Congratulations, Joyce. Love the blog, and adore your enthusiasm.

  7. Congratulations Joyce! Well deserved!

  8. I was lucky enough to get to sit next to Joyce at an RWA dinner one time. She truly deserves this award! Love it, love it, love it!
