An author from Burnham has released her first adult novel.

CJ Skuse was born in Weston but now lives in Burnham and has released a number of novels, but until now they have all been for young adults.

But this time she is stepping out her comfort zone and new release Sweet Pea follows the story of Rhiannon Lewis, who works at a newspaper by day – but has a killer secret.

She makes a killer list and those who she deems deserving are on it.

CJ had her first novel published back in 2010 and her writing career has since gone from strength to strength. She says she has not had it easy, her early ideas were often rejected before she decided to take part in some creative writing courses to help her through.

Sweet Pea is set to be 
released on November 7 and CJ is hoping this will be another success, having been described as ‘Bridget Jones meets American Psycho’.
