Do we care about the author?
 

  SJ’s parents sold her to a mad scientist when she was just three days old and she was raised mostly by the lab mice.  She credits this upbringing for her passion for hard to pronounce cheeses.

    She has always loved writing, and for most of her life was an extremely dedicated writer for approximately five days out of every year, however after a tumour, that she christened Earnest, was discovered and successfully removed, writing became a full time commitment.

   SJ Eeles has written a screenplay, three feature length plays and several short ones, a found footage film script, a 12 episode radio play, a found footage screenplay, some truly awful short stories and some not too bad ones.

   Original Sin, published in 2019 was her third novel (if you count the ones she started when she was 15), but the first she finished.  The others remain in the ever-growing Drawer of Unfinished Projects.

   She has worked as a stand up comic, a bad waitress, and lied on most of her resumes.  She continues to write from the couch of any friend who accepts payment in babysitting duties and/or baked goods.  Her second novel, Dire Conditions, was released October 2020.  

Tinder says she’s 38.
