Road to Duncan
“In Arizona, I have lived in three areas in the past 20 years. The first is on San Carlos Lake on the San Carlos Rez. The second is at the foot of Cochise Stronghold. The nearby community is called Sunsites. The third is the Safford area itself. Thus, southeastern Arizona is the setting for most of my poems. Therefore, most of my information comes from me being on site and talking to others who live there.” Joyce divides her time between her home in Michigan, her family in Vermont, and the Southwest. She is the author previously of A Grand River, Poems for Michigan.
