Joan De La Haye was born in Pretoria on the 17th of January 1977 at 7pm.
The youngest of three children raised by parents in the Diplomatic service, Joan was educated abroad, finally completing her education in Vienna. She speaks four languages and is qualified in clinical hypnotherapy and also has a diploma in Fine Art and Creative Design.
If you were to ask how long Joan has been writing, the answer would depend on who you asked. If you were to ask either her mother or her grandmother, they would both say that she's been writing since she first learned to hold a pencil. Joan on the other hand would answer that she penned her first story at the age of twelve, while sitting in her mother’s office during a school holiday, to while away the time.
Joan has a profound interest in the occult and the paranormal which is evident in her writing.
She lives in Johannesburg with her cat.
