Welcome to C.J. Kirkland.com!

My life has been impacted greatly by the words of others and I hope that my words will have an effect on your life as well. Honoring the power that lies in the written word, I want my writing to encourage you, to make you laugh and to make you think.

My readers are a big part of my life and a source of inspiration for my writing. I welcome (and look forward to!) your comments and would love for you to share some of your own experiences with me and fellow readers.

Thank you so much for your ongoing love and support. Because of you I am able to do what I love and hopefully make a difference doing so.

"She lifted her face to the blue sky. . . River felt a power beneath her bruised skin and broken spirit that pushed her into a place of peace and joy. Running set her free."
