Joy Swift, through personal tragedy, realized she was not alone in dealing with grief and was inspired to write her story. Since then Joy and her husband, George, have been asked to address audiences around the country. The World Trade Center catastrophe only reawakened her enormous sorrow and led to When Death Isn't Fair.
The story of her tragedy was told in her first book, They're All Dead, Aren't They. Recently she has written Goodbye Forever? A Mother's Search for Hope and When Death Isn't Fair: Coping With Overwhelming Grief. Joy and George have three children born since the tragedy: Sandy, Matt, and Michael. Joy and George are active in their local church, and have spent the past two years building a cabin on the western slope of the Rockies.
