About Joan Fallon

Joan Fallon was born in Dumfries, in Scotland, the only child of a Scottish mother and an Irish father, but spent most of her formative life in the south of England.  Teacher, management trainer and business woman, she moved to Spain at the beginning of the new millennium and became a writer.

To date she has written six novels aimed at the women’s commercial fiction market: “Spanish Lavender”, “Loving Harry”, “The House on the Beach”, "The Only Blue Door", "Santiago Tales" and "The Shining City". A natural storyteller, her novels, almost invariably, centre on a strong female character and explore the emotions and relationships of her protagonist.  Many of her books are also historical, set in the Spanish Civil War, the Second World War, or, as with her latest novel, "The Shining City" set in 10th century Spain; they are all meticulously researched.

Joan has also written “Daughters of Spain”, a non-fiction book based on authentic interviews with a number of Spanish women of all ages and from all walks of life.
