ABOUT JOON HAQUE

  • Joon Haque is a
    British writer for adults and children. Raised with an Asian work ethic and the UK’s early 80s DIY punk spirit, she self-published her first book aged five. Her
    career has morphed through various guises, all centred on her love of the
    curious – in beauty, people and things. This thread underpins her writing.

     

    She has a BA
    Hons in English from Goldsmiths, University of London.

    She also studied
    Creative Writing at City, University of London.

    She now lives

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I have a passion for the curiously beautiful, which I hope is the most apparent facet of my writing. 


    But in my stories for children, I also want to offer them role models, heroes, heroines and examples of people doing wonderful things – regardless of their gender or skin colour or what the world around them may have taught them so far. I want to offer the stories I wish I had growing up and ones I am searching for to read to my own children.

    These stories are long overdue.
