J A Mortimore writes space opera/fantasy with romance. She started writing fiction at a young age and has never stopped. She wrote fanfiction for many years in a number of fandoms in the days when publishing involved stencils and a duplicator. She has been active in science fiction and media circles for longer than she cares to think about. She is retired and lives in Gloucestershire, UK with two friends, a number of cats, and far too many books and half-finished manuscripts.
Whilst her longer fiction tends to involve romances, she admits to being at the mercy of her protagonists, so how their relationship develops is different from couple to couple.
She is currently a member of the Alliance of Independent Authors and the British Science Fiction Association.
