Meet the author – CJ West

The Amazon Launch Party of the year is almost here. Help us celebrate the launch of our book “What She Knew” Marilyn style! Now, we know that Marilyn loved to mingle. She attended all kinds of events from backyard BBQ’s to meeting the Queen of England! Her favorite beverage was champagne and her favorite food was caviar! So, put on your heals and pearls and join us for a Marilyn approved party! We’ll be serving virtual champagne and caviar, but the prizes will be real! So make your plans today to attend.

One of the coolest things, besides the great prizes you could win, are the wonderful guest authors we will have at the event! K. R. and I wanted to dedicate four blogs to highlighting each of these very talented authors. Today we introduce you to author CJ West.

Author CJ West, A Demon Awaits

In his own words:

Thriller writer, poker player, recreational landscaper, recovered golf addict, part-time assassin and fictional serial killer.

CJ West spent twenty years helping companies solve computer networking and information management problems with firms including Arthur Andersen. In 1999, he began writing suspense novels and several years later transitioned to writing fulltime.

CJ puts everyday people into intense situations and forces them to consider how they came to be who they are. He enjoys exploring the world through his research and varies his stories to follow his curiosity.

Sin and Vengeance, the first book in CJ’s Randy Black series, was optioned for film by a screenwriting firm in early 2008. The screenplay, written by Marla Cukor, is complete, but has not yet made it to the big screen. A Demon Awaits, the second book in the series offers a major twist in the storyline and challenges readers to forgive Randy Black’s mistakes and follow his journey in future novels. Gretchen Greene, the third Randy Black novel is the first in a series of characters Randy will be tasked with saving. CJ’s latest standalone thriller, The End of Marking Time, was published in 2010.

CJ hosts a Blog Talk Radio show called The Thriller-30 where he interviews contemporary thriller and suspense writers. Find more information at

Some of his favorite quotations:

Habit can be your fiercest foe or an ever-present ally, it’s up to you.

Virtue is its own reward.

The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money. ~Margaret Thatcher~

The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine. ~From a Chinese fortune cookie~

The beliefs, feelings, and behaviors of others do not intimidate me.

And so these two humble authors say a HUGE THANK YOU to CJ West!! We look forward to being at the “What She Knew” book launch party with you!!
