About the Author
Len Joy had an idyllic childhood, growing up in the gem of the Finger Lakes, Canandaigua, New York. In high school he lettered in four sports and went off to the University of Rochester with dreams of becoming a football hero and world famous novelist. But that didn't happen. Instead he switched his major from English to Finance, quit the football team but started dating one of the cheerleaders. Three years later, Len and Suzanne were married, and four decades later, they still are with three grown kids.

They relocated to Chicago where Suzanne became a corporate lawyer and Len, with his MBA and CPA, became the auditing manager for U.S. Gypsum. Several years later, he bought an engine remanufacturing company in Arizona and for fifteen years communted to Phoenix.

During those many flights, Len read hundreds of novels, renewing his dream of becoming a world famous author. In 2004, he wound down his engine business and started taking writing courses and particpating in triathlons.

Today, Len is a nationally ranked triathlete and competes internationally representing the United States as a part of TEAM USA. He is also the author of three published books, with a fourth ("Everyone Dies Famous") to be released in July 2020 by BQB Publishing. Len's books and his writing have received shining reviews: "American Past Time" was reviewed by Kirkus as ". . .expertly written and well-crafted." Kirkus also described "Better Days" as "a character-rich skillfully plotted Midwestern drama" and Foreword Reviews found it to be "a bighearted wry, and tender novel that focuses on love and loyalty."
"The plot is entirely character-driven in this deftly paced story, and the characters are well drawn and endearingly flawed. . .A well-paced Midwestern tale populated by intriguing ne'er-do-wells." --Kirkus Reviews
"Everyone Dies Famous is a moving and emotionally complex story that resonates because their struggles live in all of us. Don't miss this wonderfully-written tale of struggle, redemption, and family love. It's simply beautiful." --Jana Zinser, Author of the award winning novel The Children's Train
"The kind of novel that will linger in the mind and memory long after it has been finished and set back upon the shelf." --Midwest Review
