she/her. 32. queer.

CJ resides along the shores of Lake Erie with an impish toddler and a wife who skimmed the fine print. She pens dark supernatural stories with sapphic characters who all tend to be a little morally gray. When she's not writing or reading, she spends her time gardening, drawing, and playing with dead things. For research.
