About the Author: CJ Hawk - Writer of chick lit., romance, and mystery.
I am an independently published author that finds scraps of time to write with an intention to escape the perils of a working life, helping my husband with his business, raising teen boys, two shelter dogs and a tank full of fish that are trying to recreate Nemo daily for my personal entertainment, for which I am thankful for all.
My novels sprout as short stories and often grow to full-length novels. Sometimes its quirky general reads that turn to mysteries. Other times those mysteries turn to romance. Some novels sprout like weeds, go full gangbusters into adult romance and sell like ice-cold spiked lemonade on a hot summer's day.
I love what I do, but I can tell you that nothing ain't what it seems - Writing has its difficulties like a new relationship. The plot building is equivalent to seeing a handsome man for the first time, and your heart starts pounding. The plot lays itself out, and the characters are developing just like a new relationship with that handsome man. Then comes the editing and refining part which is equivalent to finding out he snores, farts way too much and leaves the toilet seat up. Get my drift. In the end though, it is all worth it and nothing beats a rock-solid relationship that can handle the ups and downs, nor does it beat the smile I leave on a reader's face after they got a moment away from the everyday hectic life.
