Biography
As a child, TJ thrived in the Arizona desert. By the age of five she was riding horses through cotton fields and by eleven bought her first motorcycle, a Honda 125cc dirt bike. Growing up with teachers as parents meant traveling during the summer. Hiking, backpacking, fly fishing, climbing pyramids, surviving earthquakes, and flying in hot air balloons were just some of her adventures. An avid day dreamer, she would lose herself in mystical worlds and far off places limited only by her imagination. After choosing an academic scholarship over an athletic basketball scholarship, she graduated law school and accepted a position as a Deputy County Attorney.

Hi Nanyana!

Yes, I do intend on writing a second and final book to finish Carina and Marek's story! However, I've been busy with a paranormal romance titled Divergent Bloodline and just finished the galley read. So, hopefully I should have a release date within the next couple of weeks. I'm also finishing up the first draft of a dragon shifter series, which I'm pretty excited about. Hopefully, then I'll be able to get back into Dorrado and finish their journey as they learn and grow together.

Thank you so much for asking! I truly appreciate your question!

All the best,

Thank you so much for asking about Caller! Yes, it'll be re-released within the next couple of weeks under a new publisher. Caller will be at a new, lower price and also contain an excerpt of my new dragon-shifter series, which will be out sometime during the first of the year. I'll send out another notice here when Caller becomes available. Thank you again for asking about it. I'm so glad you enjoyed the sample and hope you like the entire story! :)(less)

“My sweet lemming,” he murmured, nuzzling her neck and sending glorious spirals of pleasure ping-ponging throughout her body. “You’ve been quiet and that worries me.”

“Why?” she asked, trailing her hand down his banded forearm to entwine her fingers within his.

“Because that means you’re thinking, and a thinking woman is usually something to fear.”
T.J. Shaw, Caller of Light

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“My beloved is the sun
And I am the earth that thrives only in her warmth. My beloved is the rain
And I am the grass that thirsts for her quenching kiss. My beloved is the wind
And I am the wings that soar when she fills me with her gentle strength.
My beloved is the rock
Upon which rests the happiness of all my days.
—The Elements of Love, a poem by Aileron v'En Kavali of the Fey”
C.L. Wilson, Lord of the Fading Lands

Otherwise, I probably wouldn't have read it. I did, however, miss hours of sleep and housework suffered terribly, but it was definitely worth it! :)

Hi Angela!

Well, it's about time! I've been Jonesing for another CL Wilson novel! I don't know if it's in the Tairen Soul series either, but I'm actually hoping it's another world with new characters.

I'm really looking forward to reading it. Thanks for the heads up. :)

T.J. Shaw Haha, Gaelen is a great character. He's hard not to love because he's been through so much. He's also the bad boy with a sharp tongue. Some of his verbal blow-by-blows are hysterical! I do have a soft spot for Bel though...what a great, loyal friend.

I'd thought she was going to write more in the series using secondary characters. Have you heard about that? Or has she already?
