This is my offical Joanne Hayle website. Whether you love stories for children or grown ups (who can also be big kids) or historical royal biographies I really hope that something that I've written enthusiastically tempts you to read it.
I grew up in the south of England and started writing early, winning a poetry competition age 10 which was the best day of my life to that moment.
With determination I left full time employment to fulfil my dream of writing and publishing poetry and fiction for adults and children. I've already written several books for Amazon's Kindle and print books.
I am an active supporter and contributor to Childrens-Stories.net.
Helping children with positive enjoyable reading experiences is one of my first motivations as you will find in the children's book descriptions below.
Reading is a lifelong habit. I couldn't imagine life without it. Let's start early!
I'd love you to enjoy my work.
