Short biography
Irma Joubert was a history teacher for 35 years. This experience has stood her in good stead when it comes to doing extensive research for her historical novels. She writes with empathy and a deep insight into personal relationships. She and her husband live in Bloemfontein.

Irma is the grandchild of Tienie Holloway who wrote childrenbooks. The 'Tienie Holloway-medalje' for children-literature has been acknowledged since 1969 (and from 1976 every 3 years).
In 2005 she was nominated as finalist in the 15th Annual Mondi Paper Magazine Awards - Health & Wellness for 'Deur Letters Verpletter'; an article about dyslexia in magazine INSIG. Later that year she became The Media24 special journalist of the year.
The political journalist Jan-Jan Joubert is her son.
