About the Author
CJ Daly grew up on the scrabbly plains of Eastern New Mexico. When she was
supposed to be helping her six siblings with chores on the family ranch, she
was really sneaking behind dusty haystacks to read. And dreaming about
becoming a writer.
After graduating high school, CJ moved to Big D (Dallas) where she quickly
put herself through college while trying to rid herself of her country
accent. She had better luck with college, graduating magna cum laude with a
degree in English literature. After teaching a few years, and pausing to
have back-to-back boys, she began writing in earnest.
A few years later, “The Academy Saga” was born. “The

Cadet-in-Training” is the sequel. CJ is so proud that both books earned
Readers’ Favorites 5-STAR seals of approval. When she isn’t writing, you can
usually find her running from one athletic field to another, feeding the
array of wild animals that show up at her back door, or kicking back with
her gal-pals to sip cocktails and gossip about favorite books and TV
