About Me

Hello humans! I’m C.J. Hawthorne, indie author and journalism student on a mission to produce fun, clean fiction for young people. The world above has always inspired me, and I thrive on new experiences. I was raised on the original Star Wars trilogy and read voraciously since early childhood. When I was fourteen, I decided to try my hand at writing a novel, and a love for creative writing was born! I completed my first draft in the summer of 2018. Since then I’ve continued to write, gather inspiration, and chase my dreams. Now, the release of my debut novel means the start of a new adventure, and I can’t wait to share it with you!
