JJ Clapton is a queer autistic writer of science fiction and fantasy in kidlit. Originally from London, she grew up retreating from life into the stories in her head. When she became sick with a chronic illness she relied on the stories to help her escape.

JJ loves to write stories in which characters like her exist and have adventures even if she doesn’t get to have many herself. Apart from being an avid reader, she loves craft, watching sports, stimming to music and meowing at all the local cats (of which there are many!).

She is represented by Megan Manzano at D4EO literary agency.
