CJ Connor — writes queer cozies and cozy queers

CJ Connor is a Pitch Wars alumnus who primarily writes queer romance and cozy mysteries. Their debut cozy mystery novel Board to Death is forthcoming from Kensington Books. They are represented by Jessica Faust at BookEnds Literary Agency.

When they are not writing, they can generally be found perusing art museums, listening to angsty folk music, or stress knitting. Their main goal as a writer is to make their dog proud. This one’s for you, Yoda!

A few favorites to get to know them by:

Favorite books: Anxious People (Fredrik Backman), Hither, Page (Cat Sebastian), Good Omens (Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman)

Favorite quote: “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” (J.R.R. Tolkien)

Favorite in general: Their husband. And chocolate. Husband first by far, though they’ll be honest. Chocolate is alarmingly high.
