Message from Author: Hello, my name is Joy Gerken, pen name Joy M. Lilley. I write and blog at I was a trained nurse all my working life, until I retired in 2015.

My first novel is ‘Figs, Vines and Roses’ a tale of love and loss at the turn of the nineteenth century.

My second novel is called ‘The Liberty Bodice’. This is a completely different genre to the first novel and follows the trials and tribulations of a young girl working for the Special Operations Executive[S.O.E.]in W.W.2.

You can also find my short story ‘Lost and Found’ published in Liphar short stories Vol 1. by Liphar Magazine.

In 2016 my novella ‘Times pendulum swings again’ was published. This tells of a hospital romance that starts well, until the truth about the surgical registrar admitting to his nurse girlfriend that he is married with two sons back home in Nepal.

I am hoping to release my fourth publication ‘Strawberry Moon’ a crime, mystery set in the Dordogne, France.
