Author Biography

CJ Matthew grew up in an Air Force family traveling and living all over the US and around the world. It proved to be the perfect experience for gathering ideas and material for future books. And for meeting real life heroes and heroines in uniforms and flight-suits. She spent her high school and university years living in California, which inspired her love of marine life, and the Pacific Ocean.

Blood Tide is the first book in her paranormal romantic suspense series titled Dolphin Shore Shifters. The series features a pod of dolphins living in the Santa Barbara, channel off the coast of California, capable of shifting to human form. While posing as real humans, the dolphins work through their oceanic conservation corporation, Save Blue Water, to protect their oceans at any cost.

CJ’s next series, The Paladin Group, launched with Deadly Reboot. The books are romantic suspense, set in a small southern town, and they star wounded air force veterans, men and women warriors turned civilian lawyers and investigators determined to continue their rescue work.

A member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Georgia Romance Writers (GRW), and Kiss of Death, CJ lives and writes near a lake in the woods northeast of Atlanta. When she isn't writing or reading romances, CJ spends time with her two grown children, their spouses, a brilliant grandson and a feisty cat named Max.

Schedule permitting, CJ loves to travel, to discover new favorite places as well as meeting new friends in both the US and around the world.

Max flatly refuses to travel.

It can’t be easy to shape shift from dolphin to human, especially when the switch is interrupted with the threat of capture and a shark attack. That’s what happens to Katie as she begins her assignment with the transfer team after an abbreviated orientation in Risky Tide: Dolphin Shore Shifters Book 2 by C.J. Matthew. Facing down her fears is not as easy as she thought and, in spite of putting his team at risk, Peal, the leader of the transfer team, is willing to stand by her. Full of compassion for the wild dolphins that switch out with pod members, Katie is a valuable asset to the team, but must earn the respect of the other team members who have recently dealt with turmoil in the parent organization, Save Blue Water. While policing the seas for illegal dumping, some SBW operatives have been compromised and the trouble follows them to the transfer sites in Florida. Will Peal, Katie and the team accomplish their goals or will unknown assassins interfere with their work?

C.J. Matthew continues the unique tale of dolphin shape shifters in Risky Tide: Dolphin Shore Shifters Book 2. With an incredible mix of life and death espionage action and deeply erotic emotions, the job of the SBW operatives continues in spite of tremendous uncertainty. Along with the excitement of rescuing captive dolphins, there is plenty of anxiety as ruthless criminals compromise the success of the mission and a blooming love story. Together, it provides plenty of reasons to enjoy this great story and look forward to what happens in volume three.
