Cosmo John (C.J.) Starbright was abducted by aliens from his home in Wendover, Nevada, when he was just seven years old. He spent the majority of his teenage years and early twenties bouncing around the Perseus Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. He participated in the Tariklan uprising on Marjigot's third moon and helped resettle thousands of Tariklan refugees on Mars. He returned to Earth shortly thereafter and settled somewhere near his old home on the Utah/Nevada border. He is intensely private, but when he's not writing young adult and middle grade fiction, he runs a galactic trading post that specializes in the export of cacao beans and chocolate products throughout the Milky Way Galaxy.
