C.C. Francis has a B.A. in English with a creative writing emphasis from Stanford. He spent a year studying fiction in individualized tutorials with Oxford faculty. He then underwent an independent study program in novel-writing with a Stanford Jones Lecturer.
Francis graduated from USD Law on the Dean's Honor Scholarship and the Student Leader Scholarship, Magna Cum Laude and Order of the Coif. He was Articles Editor of San Diego Law Review.
Francis lives in sunny La Jolla, California. His partner-in-crime is a bookstagrammer (IG:@spinatale), and the two can often be spotted at the local independent bookstore shopping for the latest in the adult and YA fantasy genres. Francis once tamed a feral cat named Nicholas, and an addiction to homemade toffee might one day prove fatal.
