Behind the Author
I am C.J. Rose. I reside in Central Illinois; originally from just south of Chicago. The passion for writing took root in high school where I began writing song lyrics and poetry. I found my inspiration from other fantasy and YA novels such as Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, and more. On top of literature, I have a keen love for all things nerdy and sci-fi. On a quiet night, you can find me curled up with an episode of Doctor Who, Arrow, Firefly, and who knows what else. I also belong to a theatre organization called Kankakee Valley Theatre Association. The devotion to musicals and theatre has led me to be a part of over 10 shows as an actor, and over 20 as a staff person.
I am a hairstylist by trade, with a Bachelor's degree in Business Management. I have always loved writing, whether it was poems, song lyrics or stories. I decided it was time to sit down and put my thoughts to paper of a story concept I have played with for long time. In the process, it developed into the full-length version that I am proud to call my first published book, Bridge of the Gods – A Generation Son Chronicle. Now I have 4 novels in the series as well as a companion cookbook.
