Joye Thackston lives in central Texas, with her husband, Douglas. Her daughter, Kim Dulak, lives nearby with her husband, Ray. Joye and Kim co-authored If Only Donkeys Could Talk, their first book which was published in 2016. Joye describes The Desire of Sarah's Heart as a fun project which involved family and friends. Their souls flooded with beautiful memories as they stepped into Sarah's role and became kids again. Joye and her daughters, Kelly and Kim, all contributed to the main character's personality. Kim's behavior as a child inspired the story itself-she pleaded for an elephant for a year and a half. Growing up with ten siblings and surrounded by people she loved, Joye lived in a kid's world. She attributes this environment to herself and her family being their happiest when children are present. Blessed with six more kids after marrying Douglas, they have a total of ten. Joye is still surrounded by people she loves.
