Genre: Women’s Fiction
A chance encounter between Sara and her ex-boyfriend, Justin, whom she hasn’t seen in four years, sends her into an emotional tailspin.
As she struggles with her thoughts and emotions after seeing Justin, the reader is taken on a nostalgic rollercoaster ride back to when Sara – an eighteen year old art student working at a restaurant – first meets Justin.
In the past, we follow the beginning of their 4-year relationship, and its ultimate demise. Meanwhile, in the present, Sara must wrestle with long-kept secrets – secrets that have haunted her for years – and the guilt that accompanies them.
Although the story is often dark, touching on some serious issues, there are many lighter moments with sprinklings of humour and warmth.
“The unexpected ending to this story will leave you reeling and wanting more.”
Say Hello to author C.J. Spammer!
Her struggle with the illness has been challenging, but she attributes her survival to (among other things) her God-given gifts; finding solace in journaling, poetry, story writing, art and music.
She is a self-professed chocoholic and coffee addict, and usually delights in both at the same time.
Tell me what made you want to become a writer?
I began writing at a very early age; all I ever wanted (besides being a singer) was to write – words are my passion.
What are you reading right now?
Love Anthony by Lisa Genova
If you’re a TV watcher, what are you addicted to?
What’s a hobby you have that’s got nothing to do with books?
I love to sing, but I’m very shy so not many people know I can. I love gardening, wallking, and hiking.
What’s your favorite reading/writing snack?
Chocolate!! And Coffee.
What is your favorite season?
Tell me your favorite part of the writing process?
Oooh, that’s a tough one… it will have to be when I receive feedback / reactions from people I share my early drafts with.
Now the writing process you hate the most?
Do you have a favorite writing spot that you get the most done?
My favourite writing spot would be under a tree somewhere, but, unfortunately, since I work full-time, that spot is actually my desk at work.
What are you working on now?
Due to popular demand, I’m busy with the sequel to Misled. It’s called Deceived.
Coffee, Wine or something else?
I LOVE coffee! But also Green Tea and cocktails. Oh, and water with cucumber slices.
What type of scenes are your favorite to write?
Conflicting, emotionally driven scenes are my favourite. The more dramatic the better.
What’s been your favorite line in a review of one of your books?
“After just 10 chapters I feel like the characters are my personal friends, and I’m about to text to invite them over for a glass of wine, CHEERS!!”
What was the last movie you saw in the theater and what you thought of it?
My husband and I went to see XXX: The Return of Xander Cage. I LOVED it!! But I admittedly have a weak spot for Vin Diesel.
Do you have a book you read as a child or teen that has stuck with you through adulthood?
All Judy Blume’s books had a HUGE impact on my writing – I loved them all.
Who is your favorite author and why?
Dorothy Koomson. Her writing is just so honest and heartfelt. I aspire to have my readers feel the same about my writing as I do about hers.
You get to have lunch with anyone from the past, who do you choose and why?
He’s not from the distant past, but I would choose my dad. He died in August 2016. I miss him.
Thank you, C.J., for allowing me to feature you and your fab book, Misled, on For the Love of Chick Lit. It sounds just great!
