I'm Joyce Yarrow, avid bird-watcher and award-winning author of novels of suspense that, according to Library Journal, “appeal to readers who enjoy unusual mysteries with an international setting.” My Zahara Series was inspired by Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. I love “talking books” with readers at festivals and fairs.
