Hi, I’m C.J.

Friends and family call me “siege” because people are too lazy to pronounce two syllables. I like that.

I publish books and articles on creativity and publishing.

For over 20 years, I’ve published a newsletter (for the best readers in the world) about the useful ideas I stumble across. Subscribe if you like that kind of thing.

Most of my time is devoted to my wife and son. They gave me a purpose in life, so it only seems right.

And when I’m not writing here, I'm a Senior Content Strategist at StudioNorth.
