Joan Ninja Hen writes web fiction and animates pictures, preferably book covers. Her favorite genres are Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and a mixture of both. She writes German stuff as well under the name “Janine Johann”.

Joan grew up in a small German town where her family lived for the last 500+ years. She has a great cousin who is also her great cousin once removed and has to plug her eyebrows to impede presenting a mono-brow. Being adventurous, Joan dared to move 25 km away on the other side of the Rhine but is still a Pfaelzer at heart.

After getting educated in a Catholic all-girls school (yes, all prejudices about them and their students are true), she got a degree in Business Information Technology and a Bachelorette of Business Administration. Afterward, Joan studied Philosophy and History of Science and Technology and obtained a master in World of Warcraft.

After working fifteen years as a software developer and IT consultant, Joan decided that financial security is overrated and started a second career as a freelancing artist. You can get most of her stories and art for free. However, she still loves money and appreciates receiving donations via PayPal and Patreon.
