Joyce Klynstra has loved cooking since her teenage years, which she spent working in a family-run, drive-in restaurant. She continued her passion for cooking with a wedding cake business, hosting church dinners, and working in hospitality with her Army husband. She takes joy in fellowship and food with the many loved ones she has acquired in her seventy-three years. She lives in Lansing, Michigan. This is her first book.
Laura Klynstra, Joyces daughter, is a freelance graphic designer and photographer focusing on book covers and illustrated book interiors. Before running her business, she worked as art director at Hyperion Books and at HarperCollins.
