About the Author

Joie Lesin at Big Sur.

Joie in Big Sur.

Originally from Massachusetts, at six years old Joie moved to her mother’s birthplace of Minnesota. By eight, she lost her Northeastern accent, however, it's gradually returning as the years go by. She grew up in Minneapolis but now resides in St. Paul with her husband and their blended family—which includes a rambunctious grand-corgi named Posh.


Joie always loves a good ghost story and also appreciates anything science fiction or fantasy. She grew up watching Star Trek and loves all the new iterations of the Star Trek universe. She loves music—especially live and many of her story ideas were sparked by a song.

Thanks to a family with a grand imagination and a love for books of all kinds, Joie learned to value a heartfelt story. Early on she realized writing and storytelling were as essential to her as oxygen. She recorded her first story at six and finished her first novel at twelve. The Passenger is Joie’s first published novel.
