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.
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.
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.
