Luthor McAlester is a teenage boy living in San Diego, California. His father died when he was a child. Leaving him to become man of the house, living with his mother and younger sister. On his 18th birthday he discovers a power that has been held dormant until now. He is unsure what to do with it in the absence of this father’s guidance. His best friend Gwen, who claims to be oblivious, knows more than she is telling. Can Luther figure out how to use his power and help the Gods like they ask with just the help of his best friend? Or will the lack of guidance from his father prove to be more than young Luthor can handle?

“Has he taught you nothing?” she asks. 
I can’t answer her, not out of fear, but out of awe. For someone so small, she held herself with strength. 
“Are you hard of hearing as well?” she asks. 
I still cannot answer her. There is no wind, but her chestnut brown hair floats in the air. Her eyes match the color of her hair, and her lips the shade of a red rose. She comes just under my chin and wore a simple cream dress with a gold ribbon sash. 
“Turn.” She says. 
As I turn she steps up to the pit and slowly raises her hands. As she does, the flames grow just enough to light the area around us. With a slight childish giggle, she is gone. 
“Quite fascinating for someone so small is she not?” He asks. 
Aphrodite just gives a snuff of her nose in a sound of disagreement. 
“Who is that?” I ask. 
“You, my dear, have just met Hestia.” Aphrodite proclaims. “She can be such a show off sometimes.”

C. J. Rose lives in Central Illinois. Originally from just south of Chicago, Rose is not married and has no children. The passion for writing took root in high school where she began writing song lyrics and poetry. On top of literature, Rose has a keen love for all things nerdy and sci-fi. On a quiet night, you can find her curled up with an episode or Doctor Who, Arrow, Firefly, and more. C. J. also belongs to a theatre organization located in her town. The devotion to musicals and theatre has led her to be a part of over 10 shows as an actress, and over 20 as a staff person. Lastly, because she wasn't busy enough, C. J. has her own bow company where she sells hair bows, bowties, scarves, lip balms, key fobs and more.


When it comes to her writing, it was an itch that needed to be scratched. While working on a cookbook, and reading her typical fantasy fiction novel, the idea came to her. She took the love of all the books she has read and turned then into a novel of her own. Published by Burning Horse Media in 2014, Generation Son: Bridge of the Gods was born. Selling over 100 copies in the first month. In 2015, Rose finished penning the second novel in the series; To Rescue a King. Being new to the game, Rose has struggled to do most of it on her own. One thing she vows, is to never give up.



The focus of the novel series is to not only bring her fantasy and ideas to life, but take those stories and make them a fun learning experience for the younger generation.
