C.J. Ellisson is a NYT and USA Today bestselling author who writes urban fantasy, mystery, romance, and has ventured into non-fiction with Plot Your Work, the Writer’s Project Planner and Plot Your Health, a Journey to Wellness Planner. She lives in northern Virginia with her husband, two teenagers, three dogs, and two cats—reporting to love the energetic zoo that’s become their home.
C.J. turned to writing in 2009 when she could no longer work outside the home due to chronic illness and claims the escape of writing fiction helped save her sanity. A self-proclaimed Lupus and Lyme Warrior, she is working toward getting stronger, putting her Lupus back into remission, and staying healthy.
Instead of dozens of pills, IVs, exhaustion, and pain, C.J.’s days are now filled with writing, walking dogs, exercising, eating healthy, and leading a novel-writing club in her daughter’s school. It all leads to a fun-filled, busy day, and she’s incredibly grateful to be so involved in life again.

Color me impressed. Not just me but my doctors as well. This handy little planner fits easily in my purse and covers a multiple of needs. I’ve been extremely ill the past few months so I’ve had a chance to thoroughly put it through its paces. The ability to track multiple items, such as medications taken, various symptoms, blood glucose levels, insulin taken, carb intakes, and such have allowed my doctors and me to recognize patterns and adjust my treatments accordingly. I’m still discovering different uses for the various pages in the planner.
Drawbacks or things I would like to see changed are:
I found that I needed more pages for doctor appointments. I used up all the well-visit pages, as well as all the blank lined pages. But that’s where being able to join the Facebook group and tell the author what you like and don’t like is invaluable. I would like a page to note when appointments beyond the three months are scheduled.
All-in-all I was very happy with the results and plan to buy more for the future.
