C.J. is a USA Today Bestselling author living in Colorado. Lover of red wine, wearer of fabulous shoes, and a die-hard Niner fan, she’s also an editor at heart. She’s written over a dozen books and short stories that contain both contemporary/new adult and paranormal romance that are a little bit badass, a little heart-wrenching, and sort of funny (to her, anyway). Almost all of her books usually contain law enforcement or military undertones, since strong, brave, alpha men and women are her weaknesses. When she’s not writing, she can be found working at a very strange day job, which may or may not have some mild influences on her gripping stories – so strange, in fact, she may just write a book about it one day.
She’s also a member of the Romance Readers of America (RWA).

That’s the official stuff. Kinda boring, huh?
About the real me: You can call me Carolyn or C.J. I’m a mom, wife, writer, government employee, editor, maid, and everything else in between! I still work a day job, but only 5 years left until I can retire early. I live in Colorado but wish I was in Florida. I love the beach and warm weather… and I love, love, love to story tell. I published my first book, Enchanted Immortals, in late 2012 and haven’t stopped since. As of 2016, I’ve published 16 books, 3 novellas, and 6 short stories. I love romance but I love dark fantasy, too, and when I get bored with one, I write about the other (same when I’m reading!). I have tons of upcoming works that I am excited to share with my readers. I also LOVE doing author signing events and wish I could do more throughout the year, but alas, that pesky day job (see event schedule.) I love meeting new and existing readers, and I love getting email, or Facebook messages. Don’t be shy to friend me on Facebook (C.J. Pinard (Author) ) or follow me on Instagram (c.j._pinard), Twitter (@cjpinard) or Snapchat (CJ Pinard).
