Jolyn Young

Grace Young

Jolyn Young has been writing since she was old enough to hold a pencil. Her work has appeared in national publications including Country Woman and American Cowboy. Her humor column, Real Life Ranch Wife, appears monthly in print and online for the magazine Western Horseman. She writes about the comical side of raising kids on a cattle ranch, since her family is going to laugh at her anyway. Jolyn is currently adapting her written comedy for live performances. Her memoir, "Never Burn Your Moving Boxes," is her first book. When she isn't writing jokes or working on her next book, Jolyn enjoys riding horses with her kids, team roping with her husband and helping her family find lost objects located right in front of their faces.
