Joyce attended Reed for three years, receiving a bachelor’s degree from Pacific University in 1956. She married Don Lawler; they moved to Ketchikan, Alaska, and with their salmon trawler, joined a fishing fleet. In 1980, she moved to Costa Rica, and four years later took a job with Harcourt, Brace and Javonavitch Publishing Company in Florida. She edited travel books on Costa Rica and worked at book fairs in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Miami.
