It’s about a duckling, who is a little different from his flock, in that he dislikes his feet getting wet. Instead of being bullied or ridiculed and though no one quite understands why, not only do they accept his quirky way, they try to help with solutions, that comfort him. Quackers feels he belongs and it’s okay not to be the same as everyone else. Because of the acceptance and encouragement Quackers receives from those around him, he feels safe to be himself and we see his strengths shine through; In fact, he becomes the hero of his own story!
This book has a message that children will love, and will learn from, and that parents and other guardians will want to teach them.. It is also filled with beautiful illustrations that will ignite their imagination.

Volume 1 of Joie Lamar’s 2 part memoir - Mambo Lips is both heartfelt and a hilarious coming of age story of a LatinX girl surviving New York, her beloved family, and some tragedy as she wraps her head around being Lesbian. She finds unexpected strength in seeing the world differently and experiencing every awkward and extraordinary stumble towards coming out.
This book is incredibly popular in the rainbow reader community and went on to be included in two LGBTQ+ charter schools; Pride Atlanta & Harvey Milk High School, in New York City.
It is written very much in the style of a Neil Simon play or George Burns biography. Each chapter is a pearl onto itself.

Volume 2 of Joie Lamar’s 2 part memoir - Salsa Hips is written for a much more mature audience. The author refers to this volume as finding herself somewhere between the fine line of being authentic and the wild ride of being unleashed. This is as honest and a vulnerable writing as every memoir should be.
Salsa Hips is a rip-roaring, edgy, and unabashedly raunchy collection of memories written along side Joie Lamar’s heart wrenching and funny experiences as an out and about Lesbian.

The first of a multi-volume crime / psychological thriller series, G, is a radical novel with riveting characters, a unique understanding of street and organized crime, and a relentless pace, G (for Gangster) takes you into the unknown world of the gay mafia in New York City.
Masterly written, Joie Lamar slows down the main characters descent from a 56 floor rooftop, in New York, that she has been thrown from, so that she can tell her story and help solve her own murder, as she falls. An unforgettable novel of lesbian gangsters, passion, violence, and the main characters fight against her fate.
It is a brutal and brilliant saga of murder, forgiveness, and redemption.
