Current Bio:

Joynell Schultz has always strived for an interesting life. From driving a bright lime green SUV, to an everchanging list of hobbies from triathlons, traveling, wine making (even though she doesn’t drink it) to a desire to learn to juggle (that she only secretly thinks about.)

She is a pharmacist by training, but is currently managing the family business of a zoo in Wisconsin. Talk about interesting! From drones aggravating the cougar to the elk in rut. From baby goats being born to adopting a sheep raised in a second story apartment, there’s always something fun going on. And that was just this week!

In the little free time she has, she loves creating interesting imaginary worlds to tell tales of human relationships.

Then I thought it would be fun to keep a list of previous bios I’ve used. Enjoy…and don’t laugh too hard.

Spring/Summer 2017

Joynell Schultz was raised at a zoo (yeah, bring on the jokes) which gave her a love of animals. She spends her days working as a veterinary pharmacist and spends her nights (cough, cough—very early mornings) creating imaginary worlds writing speculative fiction. When she’s not trying to put food on the table (takeout, of course) for her husband and two children (and keeping it away from her sneaky Great Dane), she spends her time reading, writing, enjoying the outdoors, and planning her next vacation.

Winter 2016/2017

Joynell Schultz’s passion for writing was overshadowed by obtaining a doctorate degree in pharmacy from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, a “reliable profession.” Working as a veterinary pharmacist pays the bills, but is not nearly as exciting as creating alternative worlds writing speculative fiction. While shivering through the long northern Wisconsin winters with her husband, two children, and numerous pets, she enjoys reading, writing, and planning her next vacation.

Original Bio for this page (Spring 2016)

Welcome to my page!  I recently began writing again after life getting in the way.  I live in rural Wisconsin with my family and numerous pets (actually, we’re at an all-time low with only four). I currently work as a veterinary pharmacist.

I love to travel, especially to see wonders of the natural world.  I also enjoy cycling, running, hiking, and nature.

Oh, and I LOVE comments! Please leave as many as makes you happy–they’ll definitely make me happy.

    A great blog. I look forward to hearing more about your hikes, pets and life in Wisconsin (which must be an amazing place to live). I have fond memories of New England, Florida and the folks in both. Our nation’s bonds are wider than an ocean. Enjoy your writing.

    • Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my page! Wisconsin is lovely 3 months of the year… The rest of the time it’s a little nasty — but I think you have similar weather.

  6. Thank for the follow on my blog. I look forward to following your blog as I am sure I will either learn a lot vicariously or at least have some moral support. I have my first novel I’m looking to publish and don’t myself know where yet to go with it.

    • Thanks for stopping over! Keep me updated on what you do with your novel. I thought I made a decision on mine, but now I’m not so sure…

      • I understand the struggle. There is so much info out there on publishing, but really, there isn’t. I’m floundering just trying to get a basic understanding of the business. Right now, the novel is getting passed around to friends and family for feedback, I will do yet ANOTHER revision/edit and then I am going to send it to small publishers to see if someone will publish. Unless, a better idea comes up in the meantime. Best of luck to us both!!
