Stephanie (S. J.) is a writer, knitter, amateur astrologer, Capricorn, and Japanophile. She loves foxes, owls, sushi, yoga pants, Evernote, and black tea. When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing or spending time outside, unless it’s winter. She hates winter. Someday she’ll own a house in both hemispheres so she can avoid the season entirely. She’s a mom to two great kids and lives with her husband and family outside NYC. They have no pets. Yet. When it comes to her work, expect the unexpected. She doesn’t write anything typical.

S.J. Pajonas is currently not accepting new questions.

Showers are the key to unlocking the squirrely plot points of my novels. I have had my best ideas in the shower and right before falling asleep. Showers are a better place to get ideas because I can get out and write them down. Before sleep is precarious because I don't always have the energy to write it down. I always think, "I'll remember this amazing idea in the morning!" and then never do. Lol. Now I pick up my phone and put those ideas in Evernote. It's safer.(less)

If you love outlines, go for it. If outlines don't work for you, write by the seats of your pants. Don't let anyone tell you that you HAVE to write a certain way. That's crazy. I spent years not writing because I thought I HAD to write outlines and I hated them. What a waste!(less)

Love this description!
Second Daughter by Susan Kaye Quinn
“Trickles of water wept down the walls and gathered in the center. The three of them followed the tiny stream, their torches casting orange licks of light around them. The low ceiling and tight walls forced them to walk single file.”
Susan Kaye Quinn

Full review to come on my blog during INDUCTION DAY's blog tour, but super happy with this sequel. More time traveling. More Tristan. More drama. A great follow-up to BUTTERMAN (TIME) TRAVEL, INC.

“That other woman may have entered his thoughts every now and then, but only as a regret. I was the one who had his full attention now.”
S.J. Pajonas, The Daydreamer Detective Braves The Winter

“This was what I loved about books. Even when my life was low, I was happy to lose myself in fiction and forget about it for a short while.”
S.J. Pajonas, The Daydreamer Detective Braves The Winter

“That’s the way the system worked for most of Japan. Work hard, work late hours, work on the weekends, spend the night at work, anything for work. I had worked a lot when I had an office job, but it never seemed to be enough. People would sleep at their desk overnight, and I just couldn’t.”
S.J. Pajonas, The Daydreamer Detective Braves The Winter

“I don’t give a shit about a clean fight. Just make it a good one.”
Starla Huchton, Angel

“I almost turned around right there. Stupid, yeah, but PTSADS doesn’t care how stupid a trigger is. If you need me to spell that out, it’s Post-Traumatic Stuffed Animal Death Syndrome. I thought it was pretty funny. Mom and the psychologist did not. The psychologist said I had substituted George for Dad and I actually had post-dad syndrome. I told her George was a fucking bunny.”
Leah Raeder, Unteachable

“That's another thing about lies: if you convince yourself they're true, they become true. A lie is a discrepancy of belief, not fact.”

“The storm front had finally broken, tatters of cloud pulling apart like cotton candy and sprinkling the sky with the bright sugar grains of stars.”
Leah Raeder, Unteachable

“Everything was flame shades of tangerine and pomegranate, ripeness on the brink of decay, and when the wind rippled the leaves they looked like a mosaic of fire, like the walls of the Cathedral Basilica.”
