“The more I write the more I come to believe that we authors do not tell stories, so much as we are the people who listen closely as the stories tell themselves to us

– J.J. Sutherland

J.J. Sutherland is a restless adventurer trapped in the body of an introverted, tea-drinking homebody. The solution? She writes. Over the years she has worked as a model, ghost writer, and language interventionist; but writing has always been the one true passion.

Lurking the west coast with a cat named after one of the many foods she over-indulges in, J.J. crafts fast-paced stories to transport herself – and her readers – into worlds of surprise and suspense, where nothing will turn out the way you imagine.

The Once and Forgotten Thing is her debut novel.
