Joanne Bertin was born in 1953, in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. A science fiction/fantasy novelist, her short stories and books center on a world of "truehumans", "truedragons", and "dragonlords", the last of which are beings which can change from human to dragon.
Her first publication was in 1995 when her short story Dragonlord's Justice was submitted for an anthology of dragon stories and accepted. Her first novel, The Last Dragonlord was published in 1998 and met with great success. The sequel to the book, Dragon and Phoenix, was published the following year. She is supposedly still working on Bard's Oath, the third book in the series. As of 2007, there has been no news of this third book.
Bertin had been writing stories set in the Dragonlord universe for over twenty years since she came up with the world in high school, which evolved from an art class picture whose characters stayed in her imagination.
In addition to her writing, Bertin also holds a day job. She currently lives in Connecticut with her husband, Walter "Sam" Gailey, and an ever-changing number of ferrets fondly known as the Weasel Patrol. Her son, Matthew, was born in March of 2004.
