CJ Warrant talks writing this morning….take it away CJ
First and foremost, I want thank you for having me. It’s a great pleasure being here and to take over your blog.
There is some much I want to say, but mostly, I would like to introduce myself.
My name is CJ Warrant, and I write Dark Romantic thrillers and Suspense. I’m half Italian and half Korean—and yes, I do eat kimchi and pizza, and sometimes both at the same time.
I was born just outside of Seoul Korea, and my first language was Korean. But when I came to this wonderful country, I had to learn English—side by side with my mother and siblings. Through out the years, and meeting so many diverse people, I have picked up on some other languages.
I was army brat through and through, and had the privilege to travel with my family, and meet so many great people and see different parts of the world.
One of the places that stuck with me to this day is Wisconsin. Yes, I said Wisconsin. We only lived there for a year, but it was a year to remember.
Reason being, I learned not everyone is mean because of my nationality or how my eyes looked. My connection with my family grew stronger. But then our family dynamics shattered when a driver, who wasn’t paying attention to the road, killed my younger brother. And the house we lived in was, or still might be…haunted. (More of a playful ghost, from what I remembered anyway.)
Anyway, my debut novel, Forgetting Jane was developed from that experience from living there, but of course, the plot has a more sinister side to the story than how I lived in that farmhouse.
As for my writing,
My first novel, Forgetting Jane is published through Solstice Publishing and is available at:
I currently have several stories in the works. Two series, and another couple single titles. All Dark romantic thrillers.
I also have Forgetting Jane coming out in audio book and it’s in near completion. If you would like more detail, please subscribe to my newsletter to get more detailed news about my books. Just follow the link below.

If you would like to come by and say hi to me, I’ll be at the La Grange Public Library with some of my author friends. We’re doing readings and some giveaways on February 7th, at 7:00 p.m.
Thank you again for letting me introduce myself. It was fun being here!
