About the Author
Originally from Appleton, Wisconsin, C. J. Thrush wrote and illustrated a children’s novel at the age of 18. Quest of the Faes was published by a small Midwestern publisher (PearlWin, 1985) when C.J. was working toward her B.A degree in Studio Art at the College of Saint Benedict in Minnesota.
After college C. J. moved to California and took up competitive fencing under Maestro John DeCesare, the model and inspiration for Francesca's father, Maestro Thurio DiCesare.
C. J. became a glass artist and founded Bella Lumina Art Glass Studios. In the aftermath of the horrible 9/11 attack business dried up and C. J. decided to pursue her other love, writing.
She currently lives in San Jose, California with her wonderful husband and their very naughty cat.
Sure, he looks innocent...
