Hi! My name is Joy. I was born at home on the Upper West Side in NYC, and left the city 18 years later to attend Beloit College in the Midwest. After graduating with a creative writing degree, I moved back to Manhattan, where I answered the phone and filed papers for a candle company. Feeling cramped from the city, I picked up and headed for Cape Cod, where I adopted my dog, Juniper, learned to drive, and started 3 Chairs. I have written for Food52 (see my articles here), and I was an editorial intern for the lifestyle blog, A Cup of Jo. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Hi Joy – I’m a long time reader, first time commenter.
    Lately, I’ve loved hearing about your transition (back to) NYC. I left almost a year ago and have been itching to return to the city. When that happens, I’d love to meet you – you have a warm genuine writing voice and I often find myself nodding along to, and bookmarking your posts/links. XO from Milwaukee 🙂 – Neha
