CJ Walley Inspired Short Form Bio/Interview: Where’s your passion? No mystery here…I enjoy writing and telling stories. Period. Your journey so far? Sent away to school to get a fancy education, my family proudly referred to me as bilingual for an ability to speak both Standard American English and my native Cracker. After graduation from college, a curious nature has led me down many paths in life: Former Peace Corps volunteer complete with whip worms and malaria, big ticket sales engineer, commercial graphic artist, international packaging design consultant, recovering golfer and more recently, an award winning and produced scriptwriter. Where do you want to go? I’d like to sell several... Go to bio
