Award Winning, Amazon Kindle Best Selling Genre Author

Non-fiction, love and romance. C.J.'s breakout memoir AFFAIRYTALE, debuted at #1 in diaries and journals.

Her second release WTF am I supposed to eat? A dieter’s manifesto, was an instant kindle best seller in weight loss and won the Readers Favorite Book Award.

When she began to write seriously in 2015 it became clear that crafting unputdownable books is what she was born to do. She has since been inseparable from her laptop since.

C.J. writes what she wants. It's risky shit. Except the dog rescue book, that one is suitable for anyone with a beating heart. But if you're easily offended and live by the rules of debutante society C.J. might not become your favorite author. Maybe give her

AFFAIRYTALE is a love story about two people coming together under impossible circumstances. When I wrote it, I tried to stick to Grant and I, and the core of the story. I didn't want it to revolve around an angry wife bashing her husband and spewing out all of his perceived faults to justify having an affair. Any events or feelings I may have had like that, I kept to myself.

I chose to include events, emotions and memories that supported our unusual love story from my perspective while being as sensitive as possible to other individuals involved. When it came to Grant and I, everything I wrote is uncensored.

Regarding Dani, I chose to keep this a story about two people coming together and spared you the from the details of us playing light bright and making Halloween costumes. The absence of Dani in the story does not mean the absence of Dani. I chose to keep her story to a minimum. In my brief absences, she was well taken care and is thriving today much better than I did at her age.

I am incredibly proud to be able to model for her the relationship that Grant and I have. I would be so sad if I hadn't broken the cycle of being surrounded by unhappy marriages. She is growing up in a loving home, free from arguments and dysfunction, full of morning hugs, kisses, siblings and quality family time. Dani sees and talks about the difference in the life and marriage we have in comparison to the accepted norm.

Our life with Grant has turned out to be even better than I imagined it would. (less)

Giovanna, you mean cause I disclosed a scene about masturbation or hung all of my dirtiest laundry out to dry in the biggest public backyard?

Here is the truth. I wrote it, told myself to be as honest as I could possibly be and to not hold back, then I closed my eyes and hit PULBISH!

My eyes are still closed... (less)

Romeo and Juliet, Allie and Noah, Bella and Edward, these are the stories of forbidden love we never forget, stories that span decades, centuries even, and across generations.
