Joan Fallon was born in Scotland, but grew up in England with a love for literature and a longing to write. For many years the only writing she was able to do was in her work as a teacher and later a management consultant specialising in Behavioural Studies. However, when she moved to Spain in the late nineties, she devoted her time to writing novels. Her books all centre on a strong female character and explore the emotions and relationships of the protagonist. Joan writes both contemporary novels and historical novels that focus on the social fabric of society.
