SJ was born in Nairobi, Kenya in 1982. From there she travelled with her parents to many places around the globe. Books and writing have always been her way of relaxing. All her life she has had vivid dreams. Then one day she decided that perhaps the reason she dreamt so much was because they needed to be written. And so, in between working with her animals and looking after her small household, she wrote down the dreams until slowly each became a story in their own right.
