I am CJ Johnson...
I write for a living.
I literally, write to live.
I write films and other cool film related stuff too.
I want to sincerely thank you for taking time out of your busy busy busy day and hoping over to my site.
I might just bow down to you if we ever meet in real life and you tell me you have clicked onto this little page.
I was born to be an indie author and screenwriter, i.e. story-teller...
According to my Mom, I have been a professional writer since the 6th grade when I pitched an article to Essence magazine about how to overcome shyness. Needless to say, they didn't publish it due to something about age requirements, but the editor at the time did write back and say "Keep At It, You Have A Knack For Writing."
However, I took my time coming into writing professionally, but once I started, I have been plugging away and racking up some notable success and admiration ever since (that sounded really cocky didn't it?).
So What Do I Write You Ask?
Fiction: Erotic Romance & Paranormal Romance
I am fascinated by my words landing in books and on the big/small screen.
My literary heroines and heroes includes | Toni Morrison, Anne Rice, Stephen King, Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie, Zadie Smith, Adrienne Rich, June Jordan, Gwendolyn Brooks, Edwidge Danticat, Nik Nicholson, David Sedaris, Danielle Laporte, James Baldwin, Shonda Rhimes, and the entire writing team at House of Cards, to name a few.
of course i blog!
I write about screwing up, being awkward, love, hardships, self-empowerment, and creative works in progress.
