Hi there!

I am so excited to share my inspirational fiction book with you because I truly believe it was written just for you. I began writing The Morning After in 2008. I finished it in 2016. Now, do you believe me? *smile*



The Morning After” is a well-crafted, powerful, amusing and inspiring work of art that should never be confused with a mere book!  Charged with a rich story-line and shockingly real characters who jump off of the pages, C.J. Wade has created a tale filled with profound wisdom, explosive wit and timeless spiritual truths.  I have found my new favorite author and I cannot wait for the sequel!”

Book Description

Trauma brings decisions, and change is bound to follow. When you’re the daughter of a philanthropic ambassador and a southern socialite, the threads of your future are inherently woven into a blanket of high expectations. In The Morning After, Elyse Adams experiences a devastating event which causes her to question her beliefs as well as her reality. The relationships around her do not appear as they seem, and all the while her heart embarks on a journey toward Malcolm, a mysterious stranger she meets while waiting for a friend after work. As she untangles her web of emotions, Elyse must make a decision that could change the trajectory of her life.
