A Polish national who spent a little less than a decade in Ireland, and now resides in sunny Arizona.
As a little girl she dreamt of becoming a ninja warrior or a witch but since she was never collected for training she studied hard and became a witch all on her own. So far no one has been brave enough to object, she has curses prepared should anyone try. Joanna writes fiction in both Polish and English and been published in both languages although she is still working towards seeing a book with just her name on the cover.
When not writing, Joanna reads, plays video games, table-top RPGs or does arts & crafts. She is also in the process of discretely growing her tea collection when her partner is not looking. She plans to have entirely claimed the kitchen before he catches on.

Her short stories were published by Polish magazines (Nowa Fantastyka, Esensja, Science-Fiction Fantasy i Horror, Magazyn Fantastyczny) and in anthologies ("Białe szepty", "I żywy stąd nie wyjdzie nikt", "Po 100 słowie", "Kot na sznurku", "Do diabła z bogiem", "Bierz mnie"). Her short story in English appeared in Fiction Vortex.
