About the Author:

C. J. Omololu (Oh-moh-LOH-loo) didn't grow up in a hoarded home, but has seen what the disorder can do to a family. Her research with the organization Children of Hoarders informed Dirty Little Secrets, which is her first novel. She lives in Northern California with her husband and two sons.
