Recently Joyce has been working on a young adult fantasy series about the Atlantis myth. The first book in this series is called The Secret Song. Joyce is represented by Nicole Resciniti of the Seymour agency.
The Atlanteans Book One: The Secret Song
On the ancient island of Tartaruga, where telepaths and levitators are common, Ciara is born with a unique gift. She sings prophecies. But no one around her reacts to this well. Her teacher worries it will upset too many people, her brother, whom she adores, thinks it’s ‘creepy’, her sister is jealous, and her father fears she may expose his secrets. More than anything, Ciara wants to be loved and accepted by her family, so she stifles her gift and loses confidence in her own judgment. But when climate changes threaten to destroy their island, Ciara realizes it’s when she doesn’t speak up that people get hurt. She begins to find her voice, but is it too late? And must she risk losing her brother’s love in order to stand up for what she knows is right?
