Award-winning Historical Fiction Author



The Scottish novelist Joan Fallon, currently lives and works in the south of Spain. She writes both contemporary and historical fiction, but has also written a work of non-fiction which has proved the inspiration for at least two of her subsequent novels. Two aspects of Joan’s life particularly influence her writing. The first is being a woman who grew up during the sixties and seventies—at a time when it was harder for a woman to gain recognition in a man’s world—consequently almost all her books have a strong female protagonist. The second influence is the fact that she has lived in Spain for the last twenty years. Spanish history and culture fascinate her and have provided some of the most exotic settings in her historical novels.

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