Jayce Joyce is now only 4 years and 10 months old. His mother has just helped him submit an application for the youngest male person to publish a book.

His two first books are A Beach With No Sea and Jayce’s Sweet Tooth. They were published on February 23, 2023, by the Book Chief Publishing House. 

He is the main character of his stories. The books encourage children to eat healthy food and to be happy with what we have.

His mother, Anim Joyce, says:

💬 At age 3, he started writing scripts of our trips to the park, the zoo, and the grocery store. When we came home, he just wanted to write everything down and illustrate it.

The current Guinness World Record for the youngest published male author is 4 years and 356 days, and was achieved by Thanuwana Serasinghe from Sri Lanka in January 2017.

The youngest female to publish a book is Bella J. Dark, who released the book The Lost Cat in 2022, when she was 5 years and 211 days old. The previous record was held by Dorothy Straight for over 60 years.

To be recognized as a record holder, Jayce must sell 1,000 copies of each book. Keeping my fingers crossed!
