Joanne Hall is the same age as Star Wars, which explains a lot.... She lives in Bristol, England with her partner. She enjoys reading, writing, listening to music, playing console games, watching movies, eating chocolate and playing with the world's laziest dog.

A full-time author since 2003, Joanne's "New Kingdom" fantasy trilogy was published by Epress Online, and was a finalist in both the PLUTO and EPPIE awards . Her short stories have appeared in many publications, both print and online, including Afterburn SF, Quantum Muse, and The Harrow.

She has had short stories published in several anthologies, including "Pirates of the Cumberland Basin" in Future Bristol, and "Corpse Flight" in Dark Spires. A short story collection, "The Feline Queen" was published in March 2011 by Wolfsinger Publications, and her fourth novel, "The Art of Forgetting", is being released in two volumes by Kristell Ink. Volume One, "Rider" was published in July 2013 to a warm critical reception, while Volume Two, "Nomad" was released in May 2014.

For the last five years, Joanne has been the Chair of BristolCon, Bristol's premier (and only!) science fiction and fantasy convention She also runs the Bristol Fantasy and SF Society Facebook group, and occasionally works in an editing position for Dark Ocean Studios, a small comics company based in San Jose, as well as taking on freelance editing projects.

She is the co-editor, with Roz Clarke and Rick Novy, of "Colinthology", a tribute anthology to the late Colin Harvey, which also includes her short story "Lukewarm in Lynhelm." "Colinthology" was published as an ebook in October 2012 by Wizards Tower, and launched at BristolCon. Roz and Jo also edited a Bristol-themed steampunk anthology, "Airship Shape and Bristol Fashion", published by Wizard's Tower in February 2014, and they have future projects in the pipline.

She sometimes answers to "BristolCon" and talks about herself in the third person on the internet. She is always happy to hear from readers, either via the "Talk to Me" form or via Twitter (@hierath77).
