C J Skuse


UK flag (b.1980)

C.J. Skuse was born in 1980 in Weston-super-Mare, England. She has first-class degrees in Creative Writing and Writing for Children and, aside from writing novels, works as a freelance children's fiction consultant and lectures in Writing for Children at Bath Spa University. C.J. loves: Masterchef, Gummy Bears and murder sites. She hates: carnivals, hard-boiled eggs and coughing.

The movies Titanic, My Best Friend's Wedding and Ruby Sparks were all probably based on her ideas; she just didn't get to write them down in time. Before she dies, she would like to go to Japan, try clay-pigeon shooting and have Ryan Gosling present her with the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
