Hello! I'm Joan Haig. I'm a part-time lecturer by day and a writer of children's books by night. Most of the time you can find me pottering in the Scottish Borders with my cats and other family.

This year I am delighted to have an Author Residency with the Scottish Book Trust. My writing dream is that my books are enjoyed by children far and wide, and touch some grown-up hearts along the way.
