SJ Welsted


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.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Being a child of a foreign office worker, I grew up all over the place. We lived in a variety of cities, countries and cultures, moving every 3 or so years depending on how long my father's post lasted. When I hit my teenage years I stopped travelling with them and was put into boarding school. This was not only to help me concentrate, being smaller classes and supposedly more specialised, but also if they had to go away on post my GCSEs and A-levels wouldn't be affected.

I've always had an active imagination and right from childhood I have written stories, but it wasn't until my late 20s did I actually wrote a full length novel. I write from my dreams and from life itself and over the years I have found it relaxes my mind, often calming the storm that lies within.
When did you first start writing?
I have always written in some form since I was little. Being dyslexic sometimes has meant that I have found it hard to get down the creativity within my brain onto paper. Which is probably why I never really finished any of the stories I started.

When I wrote Mr. Right I Presume? I was at a point in my life when I was beginning to accept who I was and what I could do; including stopping caring quite so much what people thought about me.
