Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, music was a major factor in shaping C.J. Dudley into the man that he has become. Writing his first song at the age of 14, for a group he was in, he quickly realized that he had a natural gift for writing. As he grew older, he worked tirelessly on honing his craft. As he continues to discover new creative writing avenues, he always reminds himself that the road to becoming a great writer, is paved one word at a time.
