S. J. Schwaidelson

Novelist, Playwright, Blogger

New York born, but living in Minnesota, S. J. Schwaidelson is a novelist, current events blogger, and playwright.

S. J. met her husband Ziggy at the University of Minnesota while pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree in theater. Minnesotans don’t transplant well, so they settled in Saint Paul, his home town. After the boys were born, she concentrated on plays for children as the book creator for Schwaidelson and Waterman, Playwrights. Between plays, there were kids to raise, a husband to humor, day jobs to handle, and novels to write.

After Ziggy passed away, her alter ego began blogging. The Wifely Person Speaks has been around since 2010 and is read globally. She continues to publish her take on current events, politics, and the art of the ridiculous late on Monday nights, and has yet to skip a week.

Talk to me…

No one writes in a vacuum. Like any other artist, we need an audience. We need feedback. In my playwriting days, I used to stand in the lobby to listen to the audience. These days, the lobby isn’t available, but you, the reader are still out there. Write to me; I will answer.

You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.” –
