As a former pediatric ER doctor and New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, C.J. Lyons has lived the life she writes about in her cutting edge “thrillers with heart.” Her novels have won numerous awards and critical acclaim as she has traversed a publishing career partnering with major NYC publishers, small presses, as well as self-publishing and selling over two million books.

C.J. accepted the Author Guild’s invitation to join their Advisory Council because she believes authors need to empower themselves as CEOs of their own global media empire and take control of their careers.
