C.J. Laurence

Biography

I'd love to say that writing has always been in my blood and I owe my strange imagination to a relative I barely knew, but as far as I know, I'm a one of a kind from my family (in more ways than one!!).
So what do I love to write about? Well, whatever takes my fancy to be quite honest. I'm not one to write for the market - I write for myself, what comes from the voices, sorry - muses, in my head, and what I think are unique twists in this repetitive world.
As a result, you can find me scattered across genres from steamy romance to dark fantasy and horror. My only hesitance at the moment is sci-fi but I'm sure I'll tackle it some day!
Conspiracy theories, the supernatural, and the darker side of human nature fascinate me. I adore mythology and ancient history too, and also (only when I'm feeling intellectual) tend to dip my toes into quantum physics to better understand theories of the supposed impossible (like parallel worlds and time travel).
I am a thirty-something mother to an eleven year old boy, 3 cats and 4 snakes. I am a petrol-head, a lover of languages, and have a deep passion for horses. Naturally, horses and nice cars often pop up in my stories!

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
Good question! Before I became a writer, I could have easily rolled off a list as long as my arm. Since I've become sensitive to the do's and dont's of publishing, I've found it quite hard to read without my editor mode kicking in! But, I do have some favourites I return to now because I can easily consume their stories in one sitting. Caroline Mitchell, John Marrs, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Apryl Baker, Terri Anne Browning, L J Shen, and Callie Hart.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The need to earn money to buy more covers, hahahahaha! (I do have a serious addiction to 'pretties' as we call them lol). I have a confession actually - on days where I'm writing, I don't tend to get out of bed except for necessities. My cats huddle around me, making it awkward to type, but I find it comfortable and often the only place (aside from in the bath) where I won't be disturbed or roped into doing something else!
