C. J. Tudor was born in Salisbury and grew up in Nottingham, where she still lives with her partner and young daughter.

She left school at sixteen and has had a variety of jobs over the years, including trainee reporter, radio scriptwriter, shop assistant, ad agency copywriter and voiceover.

In the early nineties, she fell into a job as a television presenter for a show on Channel 4 called Moviewatch. Although a terrible presenter, she got to interview acting legends such as Sigourney Weaver, Michael Douglas, Emma Thompson and Robin Williams. She also annoyed Tim Robbins by asking a question about Susan Sarandon’s breasts and was extremely flattered when Robert Downey Junior showed her his chest.

The Shining is my favourite King novel - it's incredibly atmospheric and the tension builds beautifully. After that, probably Pet Sematary because it is so dark and also because it was inspired by my favourite piece of short fiction, The Monkey's Paw. I haven't re-read the latter for several years, but I re-read The Shining almost every winter! x(less)

I went to school in a mining village in Notts in the 80s and years later, I used to walk dogs (I worked as a dog-walker) over one of the old, reclaimed pit sites. I always found something about the area very bleak and I would often think about what lay beneath the ground: the abandoned mines and tunnels. That was really the starting point! x(less)

“What shapes us is not always our achievements but our omissions. Not lies; simply the truths we don’t tell.”
C.J. Tudor, The Chalk Man

“There are some things in life you can alter–your weight, your appearance, even your name–but there are others that wishing and trying and working hard can never make any difference to. Those things are the ones that shape us. Not the things we can change, but the ones we can't.”
C.J. tudor, The Chalk Man

“We think we want answers. But what we really want are the right answers. Human nature. We ask questions that we hope will give us the truth we want to hear. The problem is, you can’t choose your truths. Truth has a habit of simply being the truth. The only real choice you have is whether to believe it or not.”
C.J. Tudor, The Chalk Man
