I'm JJ, and my business is stories.

I write them, film them, and teach you how to create them yourself.

JJ Barnes What Ivy Wants New book Siren Stories


I am releasing my Creative Writing Advice series on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I am teaching you all the tips and techniques I've learned in my own writing, to give you the confidence to get your own story out into the world.

My new book, What Ivy Wants, is out now.

This is a very personal story to me, following Ivy Rhodes as she is forced to completely change her life, overcome unexpected challenges, and finally work out what it is she really wants.


On my art page you'll find all the digital art, zentangle art, and animation art I am creating.

I can animate your photographs and book covers, turn your pictures into works of art, or give you a digital make over!


Find links to all my work including my books, film and TV work, YouTube channel, art, photography and more.

Come and find me on social media, I'm always chatting writing and filmmaking, as well as sharing pictures of my cats and dog and the shenanigans my children get up to!
