Joyce Burns Zeiss

Joyce Burns Zeiss is a young adult author who traditionally published her first book three years ago after teaching junior high. Her book is historical fiction based on the true life story of a Vietnamese boat person. She will be sharing my experience becoming a first-time author in retirement, the path to traditional publishing, how she got an agent, working with an editor, and the aftermath of publishing---getting your book out into the world and what's next.
