C.S. Ratliff

I have always had creativity flowing through my mind. Every single day I imagine the world with a little bit of magic in it. For me to be able to put pen to paper and tell my adventures, for you to read, is one of the most exhilarating paths for me to explore and share. I hope that you will be able to get lost in the pages as much as I have in writing them. For you, my readers, I share my stories.

What's to know?

Writing has always been a passion of mine, and being able to turn it into a fulfilling career has been one of my greatest ambitions. My career started picking up in 2019 when I began writing my first novel. Since then, I’ve never looked back and have been improving my writing techniques and developing a unique literary style. Read on to learn more about my work and feel free to contact me. I’d love to hear from you.


The Lightning Rod

I am extremely proud and honored to share my first fantasy novel with you. My close friends, family, and of course my publisher know how much work was put into getting this book ready for release and publication. I’m so excited to finally share The Lightning Rod with a wider audience and hope you enjoy it.

The Thunder King

February 15, 2020

I am so excited to share my next fantasy novel with you! The Thunder King is the follow up to The Lightning Rod in the Gnariam’s Fate Saga! This sequel dives deeper into the lore and the world of Gnariam, as the hero Ranir learns lessons for which he could not prepare. Bigger risks will be taken, larger scale powers will be at play and Ranir’s journey is only getting started.
