S.J. Wharton


I am the author of Between Two Thorns, the first in a series of four. I was born in Warwickshire in 1994, but have lived in Australia since I was nine years old. Although I have been writing for as long as I can remember, in 2011 I conceived the idea for The Red Rose, spending the next two years writing and planning the subsequent novels. The first book was completed in late 2013. Right now I'm working on the second book in the series.

I enjoy reading books - anything from YA to fantasy to dystopian to 19th Century classics - as well as watching the film and television adaptations. I love 80's music and British history, and I have a ridiculously unhealthy addiction to Pepsi. At present I live in Brisbane, Australia.
