Graham Joyce (1954 – 2014)


It is a very sad day.

I found out this morning that one of my favourite writers passed away on the 9th September. Graham Joyce wrote books full of the mythical and magical, the gritty and realistic, and all with the lyricism of someone truly inspired by the otherworlds. I love them. And I can’t express how sad I feel that his time with us was cut so brutally short. There will always be spaces on my bookshelves for the books he never got the chance to write…


“Why can’t our job here on earth be simply to inspire each other?” – Graham Joyce

Please take the time to read at least one of his magical books:

The Year of the Ladybird.

Some Kind of Fairy Tale.

Tooth Fairy.

Dark Sister.

Limits of Enchantment.

The Facts of Life.

The Silent Land.
