PJ Thompson doesn't usually talk about herself in third person, but that appears to be the way these things are done, so she's game.
PJ has been writing ever since Miss Cooper in second grade played a moody section of Peter and the Wolf and asked the class to describe the cinema in their mind. Having unleashed PJ's creative hounds on an unsuspecting world, Miss Cooper retired to have children while PJ eventually got her BA in English from UCLA. She has been a long-time member of the Online Writing Workshop for Science Fiction and Fantasy.
A native of Southern California, PJ has found that her home state provides a natural intersection between mundane reality and alternate reality. Her fiction tends to reflect that state of flux, and to showcase the remarkable eccentrics who have wandered west from all over the country.
