Joy Cowley has two writing desks. With her husband Terry Coles, she now lives in Featherson, Wairarapa, New Zealand, in a little cottage well suited to a couple of senior citizens; but they still have a house in the Marlborough Sounds where they lived for many years. The desk in the Featherston is a converted bedroom and has a desk overlooking lawn, garden, and children playing in a quiet cul-de-sac. The desk in the Marlborough Sounds has a view of a bush-rimmed bay, green water licking a stony beach, wekas and seagulls and sometimes, a boat chugging to a mussel farm.
Joy and Terry needed to move from the Wellington apartment, when stairs and traffic became too much of a challenge for Terry. A bonus for Joy is that her lathe and woodturning tools are now a few steps from the kitchen door. Joy now has two certificates in woodturning and enjoys finding bowls, boxes, goblets and platters in lumps of firewood. Joy sees herself as wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
This is who she is; writing is what she does, and she has been writing for as long as she can remember. Her writing for children began with an after-school job in when she was 16, editing the children's page of The Manawatu Daily Times.
In the mids, when one of her sons had difficulty learning to read, Joy wrote stories for him and children with similar difficulties. Some of these were published in the New Zealand School Journals.
Many were used as home-made big books in classrooms. Since Story Box, Joy has written more than titles. For almost three decades, Joy has travelled, attending conferences, visiting schools, and running writing workshops for people whose culture has not been adequately represented in their children's books.
She believes that children need to see themselves and their own culture in their literature. Now, in her seventies, she needs to limit travel but she still enjoys contact with children through hundreds of letters each month. When she's not writing, Joy likes to spend time with her husband Terry, her four children, thirteen grandchildren and great-grandsons Mateo and Ethan. She also enjoys cooking, spinning wool and knitting, painting, playing the piano and any activity to do with the sea.
She also writes books of spiritual reflection and is a retreat facilitator. Joy's Awards and Honours list. For more on Joy, her work, and some writing advice, click on the links on this page. Click here for list of Joy Cowley's publications. From Joy. Site Map.

Something different for us to get into this term. Take a risk and dive into this connected, collaborative literacy experience which will be a whole lot more than we all imagine!! Here is the doc with all the necessary information for you to to check out in order for you to make a decision. We have used this book before back in Term 3 of but it is a nice short adventure story which I know will appeal to all our students from Year 5 — 8. We are starting our Term 2 book with pre-reading activities during the week of 18 — 22 May and the reading beginning on the following Monday 25 May.
