Cyndie “CJ” Zahner
CJ is a digital-book hoarder, lover of can’t-put-down books, runner, author, and Mensa wannabe. That last trait explains the inspiration for her first novel, The Suicide Gene. Her second book, Dream Wide Awake, was inspired during long runs on Presque Isle State Park in Erie, Pennsylvania and has prompted readers to ask: Is Dream Wide Awake fiction? Or one of CJ’s premonitions? CJ’s other novels include Project Dream, the stand-alone prequel to Dream Wide Awake. And her ChickLit novel Friends Who Move Couches.
