Joyce Maynard Biography

Joyce Maynard is a New York Times bestselling author who first gained national attention with the publication of her New York Times cover story, "An Eighteen Year Old Looks Back on Life", in 1973, when she was a freshman at Yale.

Since then, she has been a reporter and columnist for The New York Times, a syndicated newspaper columnist whose “Domestic Affairs” column appeared in over fifty papers nationwide, a regular contributor to NPR and national magazines including Vogue, The New York Times Magazine, and many more. She is a longtime storytime performer with The Moth.

Maynard is the author of seventeen books, including the novel To Die For and the best-selling memoir, At Home in the World, which deals with her affair with J. D. Salinger—translated into sixteen languages. Her novel, To Die For, was adapted for the screen by Buck Henry for a film directed by Gus Van Sant, in which Joyce can be seen in the role of Nicole Kidman’s lawyer. Her novel Labor Day was adapted and directed by Jason Reitman for a film starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin

Maynard has appeared on ABC's Good Morning America, NBC's Today Show, CNN, Chris Matthews' Hard Ball, Charlie Rose, and NPR's Fresh Air. Maynard is a sought after speaker at universities, schools, MFA writing programs, literary festivals, lecture series, and Jewish Community Centers. She has taught both nonfiction and fiction writing, and she frequently speaks at schools about reading and writing.

The mother of three grown children, Maynard runs workshops in memoir at her home in Lafayette California. In 2002 she founded The Lake Atitlan Writing Workshop in San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala, where she hosts a weeklong workshop in personal storytelling every winter. Maynard returned to Yale as a sophomore in 2018 to complete her undergraduate education.
