An avid reader and writer since middle school, C.J. Sears is the author of the “This Fallen World” horror/thriller series. In 2013, he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing from Arkansas Tech University. After languishing a few years at a mundane job, C. J. set out to pursue his passion. Inspired by Twin Peaks and Resident Evil, he began working on what would eventually become The Shadow Over Lone Oak – the first of several books chronicling the adventures of eccentric Special Agent Llewyn Finch.

In the fall of 2016, C.J. gave his life to Christ. That faith now informs his storytelling and ongoing blog. He believes that fiction is a uniquely valuable medium for delivering both entertainment and essential truths. His emphasis is on the power of the parable rather than preachiness, and he affirms that no message should get in the way of a good story.

C.J.’s range of interests and hobbies include gaming, occasional poetry, swimming, and amateur photography. He mostly spends time with his family and loved ones, particularly his two rambunctious cats and silly goof dog. The quiet life suits him fine, but when a new vision of monsters and mystery beckons, he’s no stranger to answering the call.

Watch for the “This Fallen World” series of suspense/horror thrillers to release starting in the fall of 2021, starting with Book 1, The Shadow over Lone Oak, in October 2021.

Tragedy strikes Lone Oak in the form of a dead girl, and it’s just the beginning.

The peaceful town of Lone Oak was, in fact, always rotting beneath the surface, with tales of blood feuds and bootleggers. It suffers a devastating blow when a young woman is murdered and her body displayed. Sheriff Willow Donahue is out of her depth with a cult on her doorstep, and Special Agent Llewyn Finch is the only one who can help her stop it—if Donahue can learn to trust in Finch and his unique abilities.

As Special Agent Finch digs into the case, a bizarre message in a dream sends him down an uncertain path. He must discover the truth behind these rumblings, and sort out fact from fiction, before it’s too late.

In a world of deception, making the wrong decisions has dire consequences.

Agent Llewyn Finch reunites with his former partner, Kasey Alexander, to embark on a mission to uncover the truth behind a series of abductions. There’s a hitch, though: Llewyn hasn’t recovered from his last case; he can’t shake the fact that where he goes, death follows.

Someone’s playing a mad game with the lives of innocents, and evidence points to a shadow organization within the government. As Llewyn and Kasey untangle the knots of a grand scheme, they aren’t sure who to trust.

Agent Llewyn Finch journeys to a remote island, and discovers that a great and terrifying secret lies in the heart of the jungle… for those intrepid men of vision uncompromising enough to find it.

Finch focuses his attention on former black-ops specialist Elias Cobb, a charismatic man known for his dabbling in the arcane arts. Under Cobb’s tutelage, a paramilitary organization called the Sons of Darkness strives to create a new paradise on Earth, one obedient to his unified vision. At the bidding of his benefactor, Cobb seeks the mythical fruit of the Wellspring Tree—a medicinal wonder capable not only of curing any disease, but of enhancing various bodily functions to a superhuman level.

Time is running out as Llewyn races to find the fruit of the Wellspring Tree before Cobb and his minions do, but troubled waters guard the hallowed ground of the Whispering Isle.

As a child of Kentucky and Texas, bluegrass and bluebonnets share equal time in my blood, fueling a need for adventure and exploration, and a keen desire to see what is out there.

This is my third evolution as a writer, starting as a young boy inventing adventures for my toys and friends. In school, I wrote to fulfill assignments and map out the world. Now, I write for the same reason I read: I want to know what happens next.

Stories can make us laugh or smile, scream or cry, sometimes at the same time. In the best stories, we let the pages tell us what we need to see inside ourselves.

My fiction ranges from horror to historical, and I placed in a short story contest when one of my first stories found a home in Evolution: Vol 1, published by Evolved Publishing. Outside of the Lone Star state, I won the Arkansas Writer’s Conference Special Award (2009) and the Creme De La Creme Award (2014) from the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, Inc. for best overall story.

Watch for Fluid Shock, the second book in “The Holocaust Engine,” the horror/dystopian/post-apocalyptic series co-authored with David Rike, to release in Spring 2021.

A team of investigators and military operators join the survivors in a race to stop the spread of an otherworldly plague.

After one year of quarantine, the Lower Florida Keys have descended into madness. The last of the local officials cling to power, hording supplies and using sheer brutality to force submission. When a second strain of disease burns its way through the enclaves of survivors, the military targets the islands for purge… until a cryptic message from inside the cordon halts the bombing. Now, a broken former detective and a group of military operators race to unravel the claim that the disease is already out, weaponized, and ready to bring the world to its knees.
 
 
 
 
Watch for Unda Sanguis: The Flood, the third book in “The Holocaust Engine,” the horror/dystopian/post-apocalyptic series co-authored with David Rike, to release in late 2021 or early 2022.

Chaos descends inside the quarantine zone as a hurricane threatens to finish what the disease started.

With an army of infected pouring across Key West, the last bands of survivors are caught between fighting monsters, each other, and a hurricane that is churning toward the island. The cordon around the island fails, leaving everyone to chose between fight, flight, flood, and faith. Those who stay will face the disease and the demonic force it has released. With saltwater and blood soaking the island, these strike teams make their last ditch effort to challenge this threat to humanity… and drown it.

I didn’t grow up wanting to write. In fact, when I finished college I’d all but stopped reading. Then I took a job at a local police department as a whistle-stop on the way to some great destiny, got hurt early on and, faced with long days of much-needed bed rest, limped into a local bookstore, and left with an armful of novels.

Two decades later and I’ve served that police department as an officer, supervisor and, now, investigative lieutenant, all the while bleeding the book stores dry. As for the great destiny, I simply offer this: we are never fully human until we find some outlet for our innate creative impulses. My outlet is the novel, particularly the dystopian science fiction and horror stories that resonated with me those years ago. Perhaps, one day, I’ll find that something I’ve written has influenced another, the same as that armful of books once did for me.
