About Me

My name is J.J. Barnes, I’m the mother of Miss Rose and Baby Boo, and step mother to Z.  They are the focus of much of my blogging, and also my main motivation to succeed.

I am the author of The Lilly Prospero Series for Siren Stories, and I write blogs on here, Rose And Mum And More, and for The Huffington Post.  You can find links to all my work and social media on www.jjbarnes.co.uk.

J.J. Barnes

In my blogging I focus on parenting, politics and current affairs with a focus on women’s issues and feminism.  I try to write a few times a week and contribute to The Huffington Post twice a week, though sometimes it’s less frequently when either the parenting or the fiction side gets a bit too busy!

I work from home where I live with my fellow author Jonathan McKinney.  I’m a work from home mother with the three children, two guinea pigs and one cat.

My first book, Lilly Prospero And The Magic Rabbit, is available on the Siren Stories website or through Amazon.  It follows Lilly Prospero as she goes from lonely and misunderstood to the centre of a powerful world, and learns not only that she has strength she didn’t know but also that people will seek to exploit it.  She must quickly learn who her friends are, learn the truth about herself, and learn how to control her power.
