CJ Birch has a number of degrees, certificates, and diplomas from various establishments (some more reputable than others), all of which have nothing to do with what she does for a living. She lives in Toronto with her partner Kim and a growing collection of dependents. When not writing or devouring books, she works as a video editor for television. A lover of words, coffee (the really strong kind that seeps from your pores announcing, by smell alone, your obsession), and sarcasm. Unknown Horizons is her first novel.
