JJ Clapton is a queer autistic writer of science fiction and fantasy. 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 currently querying a YA Sci-fi inspired by a Coldplay song, Formula 1 and her autism diagnosis. And is writing a contemporary fantasy about a housebound witch that mixes in the ominous and trapped feels of a horror.
