C.J. Graves

Biography

Ah, the dreaded profile--right up there with root canals and query letters. Let’s see…

I grew up poor, chubby, and fatherless in a small Pennsylvania town. (Ouch.) But none of this has stopped me from becoming super-wealthy, movie star-svelte, and happily married, living in a fabulous area of North Carolina. (Okay, some of this may be exaggerated.)

So what is the truth? What IS truth, for that matter? And how much does it matter for a fiction writer? Despite the deliciousness of these questions, they will have to be answered by greater minds than that of C.J. Graves. But here are a few bits of information that are mostly true:

-I have a B.A. in Interior Architecture and Design from the University of North Carolina.
-I lived in Japan for a couple years. Konnichiwa!
-I started out writing nonfiction, then screenplays, then novels--three different genres. (I may have writing ADD. Is there a support group for that?)
-I like rolling on the floor with sweaty guys and hitting people. (I know what you’re thinking, but before you get all excited, I’m talking about mixed martial arts not BDSM!)
-In my previous life, I was a harried mother of twelve, living during the Victorian era. (I don’t know if this is true, but it seems a reasonable excuse of why I don’t have children and enjoy period movies.)

So this is me--kind of. How about you? If you like mysteries, dark romances, and/or paranormal YA, please try my books--Crossed, Belted, and Antichrist 16. Happy reading!
