Rochelle Bradley, author of the Fortuna, Texas series, interviews m/m murder mystery, m/m paranormal romance author CJ Baty. They talk pros & cons of publishing, Americana history, the Pinkerton series, the ghost train, gay dragon shifters, co-writing, and fan fiction.

Author Bio: C. J. Baty lives in southwest Ohio. Her heart however, lives in the mountains of Tennessee where she hopes to retire some day. The mountains have always provided her with inspiration and a soothing balm to the stresses of everyday life.

The dream of writing her own stories started in high school but was left on the back burner of life until her son introduced her to fan fiction and encouraged her to give it a try. She found that her passion for telling a story was still there and writing them down to share with others was much more thrilling than she had ever expected.

She has a loving and supportive family who doesn’t mind fixing their own meals when she is in the middle of a story, and a network of friends, who have encouraged and cheered her on in her quest of being an author.
