When S. J. was a little S. J., she enjoyed writing stories and sharing them with her friends. Of course they were ridiculous, and, of course, she was supposed to be doing Math homework instead. However, those old stories lit the spark for sharing words with others. S. J. still avoids Math homework and hopes you like her books more than fractions and decimals.
S. J. lives with her husband and four boys on a farm in The Middle of Nowhere, Michigan. Their family belongs to two dogs, one bored cat, and three horses. Most of S. J.'s free time is spent in the saddle, because she feels more comfortable there than on her own feet.
She could live entirely off of pumpkin spice lattes and movie theater popcorn. The same Florence + the Machine CD has been on repeat in her minivan for two years; she's afraid that, if she dares to take it out, even the van will forget what a CD is.
Her favorite books usually come in sets: Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Twilight. S. J. believes you should read what brings your imagination to life, so if you haven't found it yet, keep reading!
