Author Biography

C.A. Gordon credits fellow authors H.G. Wells, R.L. Stein, and K.A. Applegate with the inspiration for his cool writer’s name. The product of two former journalists, he spent countless hours as a youth reading, listening to, and occasionally writing stories. He did that for fun. He also wrote hundreds of repetitive compound sentences and in-depth research papers. He did that as punishment.

A lifelong fan of comic book Capes and Masks, Gordon eventually decided to stop playing superheroes with his friends and actually become one. But he couldn’t do it alone, so he reached deep inside his own psyche and created five separate personas, each one based on a specific facet of his personality during his adolescence. TEEN JUSTICE is, in Gordon’s own words, “a series of revisionist autobiographies posing as a sci-fi superhero drama.”

Gordon currently lives with his wife and pug in the San Francisco East Bay. He thinks it’s just as beautiful as San Diego, only with a vastly wider variety of colorful birds and trees.

Teen Justice: Justice Has a Curfew is a sci-fi action adventure novel by C.A. Gordon. Set in the futuristic Silver City, it follows a group of teenagers thrust into extraordinary circumstances following chaotic events. After an intense battle, DHS-EX Special Agent and his team captured the teens who broke into the high-security compound of the Department of Homeland Security's Enhanthrax Investigation Division. Now, with nothing left to lose, the teens must tell their story, beginning with Cameron Gordon. When he is not getting into fights with thugs, Cameron spends his time hanging out with his best friend, Taylor Andrews, or trying to woo his crush, Anna Moore. But when the shocking outbreak of a mysterious virus causes some inhabitants of Silver City to manifest extraordinary abilities, Cameron's life turns upside down.

Are you a fan of comic books? Do you like superhero stories such as Spiderman or X-Men? If yes, waste no time and grab a copy of Teen Justice. As the first installment in a planned series, Justice Has a Curfew by C.A. Gordon knocks it out of the park with fascinating world-building and compelling character work that keeps you engaged until the end. Gordon primarily focuses on setting up the characters and introducing the world, with a few plot threads hinting at a bigger picture. I enjoyed the dialogue, romance, and humor in the story. Overall, a promising start to a potentially epic superhero saga.
