…and my guests just keep getting more and more fabulous!  Today, I have the honor and pleasure of hosting one of my personal heroes, JOY NWOSU LO-BAMIJOKO!


Joy is one of my favorite members of Rave Reviews Book Club!  Heck, she’s now one of my most favorite people in all the world!  She has this spirit that’s filled with “joy” (I wonder if that’s where her name was derived), and her smile…infectious.  Across many oceans and the world-wide web, I have come to know this gentle woman and appreciate all that she embodies.  In a chat room where we discuss books and authors, in a comment left on numerous blog sites as she flits about supporting everyone she can, even in an email…I can always feel her kindness, her warmth…and again, that smile!

Joy, now retired, was a music teacher, trained in Santa Cecilia, Rome, and obtained her Ph.D. in Music Education from the University of Michigan, USA.

Joy has walked many paths in her lifetime and the wisdom she has gained and the lessons she has learned, are now great fodder for the books she writes.  A great story-teller she is!  Right now, her book, “MIRROR OF OUR LIVES:  Voices of Four Igbo Women” is a Book of the Month selection at Rave Reviews Book Club.  Check out the trailer here!

Mirror of Our Lives by Joy Bamijoko

Today our BETHANY TURNER “PAY IT FORWARD” WEEK rages on and I’d like for you to join me in supporting this courageous woman.  I’m asking that you visit her websites that will shed more insight into what she’s about;  I ask that you follow her on Twitter and Facebook; I ask that you pick up a copy of any one of her books, and lastly, I ask that you get to know this incredible woman for yourself.  (Stop by her author page on Amazon).
