S.J. Watson Profile and Books

S.J. (Steven) Watson was born in Stourbridge in the West Midlands in England in 1971. He studied physics at the University of Birmingham before moving to London. In London he worked in a number of hospitals specialising in the treatment of hearing-impaired and deaf children.

He wrote in his free time until gaining a place on a Novel writing course at the Faber Academy in London. It was here that he wrote his first novel – Before I go to Sleep. The book was published in 2011 and has become an international best seller with the movie rights already snapped up.

Like many others, I am eagerly awaiting another novel after Watson’s brilliant debut.
