S.J. Gardiner

Goodreads Author

in Australia



Member Since
March 2012


SJ Gardiner is a clinical microbiologist by day - that's a pathologist specialising in the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases. Not the kind of pathologist who hangs around crime scenes and cuts up dead bodies. In TV terms, she's more like Dr Greg House, but without the limp or the drug habit and with a better bedside manner... she hopes.

After hours, she has a fatal weakness for crime fiction - always buried in a book. One day, she decided to combine this passion with her medical background and started writing. Her first book, ISOLATION was published by Fahrenheit Press in 2016.
