SJ Townend


SJ Townend lives in Bristol with her two children where she works as a teacher, and in her free time, she writes speculative fiction and romance. She also runs a charitable indie press with the aim of helping to promote other budding writers (

Her first romance novel 'Pick-Up Lines' is going to be published early 2023 through Champagne Book Group and her debut dark fiction collection 'Sick Girl Screams' through Brigids Bate Press towards the latter half of next year.

This website serves as an assembly point for all of her work (short stories, novels), because her actual hippocampus is full up with recipes for puddings and cosmic fluff. SJ is always keen to connect with other readers, writers, interviewers, podcasters, visual artists, and reviewers, so do get in touch!
