Publications for Joy Tucker
Joy Tucker is a Scottish writer who has lived in Wales for many years. A former columnist with The Glasgow Herald, she has had several short stories published in newspapers and magazines throughout Britain, as well as having her work broadcast on BBC Radio 4. Her radio credits include children's stories and poems, some of which she wrote for her own son and daughter. Now she writes them for her grandchildren. She has recently turned to play-writing, with two one-act dramas produced at the Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe. Joy lives on the Gower Peninsula with her Welsh husband and finds that the countryside and beaches of south-west Wales have many similarities with her native Ayrshire. Searching for the similarities and differences around the countries and regions of the UK - in the people and their traditions, dialects, even their food - is a major interest.
