About Joan Fallon

The Scottish author, Joan Fallon, began her career as a writer after moving to Spain at the start of the new millennium; her first published work was a social history, 'Daughters of Spain', inspired by the women she met in her new home. The research for this book in turn encouraged her to write the following two novels: 'Spanish Lavender', which is set in Malaga during the early years of the Civil War and 'The House on the Beach', the story of two young women growing up in Franco's Spain. Her subsequent novels have grown out of her experiences living and working in Spain.
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 one of her her latest novels, "The Shining City" set in 10th century Spain; they are all meticulously researched.

She is a member of the Society of Authors and the Alliance of Independent Authors.
