Writer Bio


FJ Gottlieb is a writer who believes in the power of Story as an enriching force that connects us to the trunk of life, the essence of humanity, and the source of All. She discovered her vocation at the age of 11 during sixth grade Literature class and has been writing ever since.

She burned all of the poetry she wrote during her teenage years and early twenties, and has shelved several of the ‘practice’ manuscripts that she also wrote during that same time frame. The poetry burning she regrets, the shelving of the manuscripts she does not.

Currently she has one completed manuscript that she considers good enough to publish and is in the middle of writing her second one, and has many ideas for more stories to come. She writes fantasy, science fiction and dystopia for the MG, YA and adult market (MG low fantasy, YA science fiction and dystopia, and adult high fantasy and urban fantasy, to be more precise). She also wants to tackle an adult magical realism book sometime in the future, when the idea is ripe. 

Besides writing, she uses her time to practice law and also do spiritual research. She’s happily married and is currently living in Panama City, Panama, alongside her husband, pets, and future baby.

  1. Hola FJ, soy panameña de nacimiento y de alma universal. He visto que estás interesada en la antroposofía. Yo vivo en España y estoy buscando el servicio de antroposofía en Panamá para mi papa que sí reside allá. Sabes si lo ofrecen en Panamá.? Gracias de antemano. Un abrazo.

  2. Hola FJ!
    Mi nombre es Melodia y soy de los estados unidos. Espero que es OK se escribo en ingles!
    My friend from Belgium and I are both storytellers (we’re interns at the International School of Storytelling in England) and we are both interested in anthroposophy. We’ve been studying it in the last years!
    We have a question for you! We are really interested in connecting with people who are working with story and anthroposophy all around the world, so it would be lovely to meet you. We are actually traveling to Nicaragua and need to stay in Panama for one night (the 29th of January). Do you think it could be possible for us to stay with you? Or would you know of a place we could stay and perhaps we could meet you for a coffee or something?
    Would be lovely!
    Thanks a lot, and hope to hear from you. My e-mail is: artpeacegirl@yahoo.com
    All the best!
