In 1987, after receiving her Master's Degree in History from California State University at the age of sixteen, Alexandra Swann wrote, No Regrets: How Homeschooling Earned me a Master's Degree at Age Sixteen. In 1989, the Swanns self- published No Regrets under Cygnet Press. The book's publication opened doors for Joyce and Alexandra to speak at homeschooling conventions in Texas, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, New York, and Montana. Joyce was asked to testify on behalf of homeschoolers in North Dakota, New Mexico and in Leeper vs. Arlington, the landmark case that legalized homeschooling in the state of Texas.
The Swann family was featured on "How'd They Do That?" a CBS series about remarkable accomplishments. Their story was told on CBN, The National Enquirer, and The National Review. During those years, Joyce and Alexandra conceived the idea for The Fourth Kingdom and The Twelfth Juror. They wrote both novels but never published them.
In 1995, Joyce was nearly killed in a car accident. Shortly after that, the Swanns' speaking and traveling ended, and the family opened a mortgage business in El Paso, Texas. For thirteen years, the Swanns worked in real estate in Texas and New Mexico.
In 2010, Joyce and Alexandra started Frontier 2000 Media Group. Together, they republished No Regrets and published The Fourth Kingdom and The Twelfth Juror for the first time. Joyce also wrote Tales of Pig Isle, the first of a children's series entitled The McAloons, which began as stories she told her own grandchildren. Tales of Pig Isle was published in December of 2010. The McAloons: A Horse Called Lightning & A House of Clowns was published in June of 2011.
