Personal life

Rallison was born in 1966. She grew up in Pullman, Washington. Growing up in a small town influenced the settings Rallison writes about in her books. She later moved to Chandler, Arizona. She began writing at the age of six years old. She continues to write throughout her life in the genres of romance and science fiction. She attended college at Brigham Young University where she studied English Teaching. She is married to a rocket scientist and has five children. One of her children is James Rallison, better known as theOdd1sOut.

Writing career

Janette published her first novels though LDS publishing companies; however, after submitting her book to a national book company, her career took off.

Janette kicked off her writing career working for an LDS publishing company writing romantic adult novels under the pen name Sierra St. James. She has recently acquired the rights to these books and has been re-editing and republishing them (her Erasing Time series under her pen name C.J. Hill is an example of this). After her books changed genres from romantic comedy to action, Rallison’s editor had her use the pen name C.J. Hill. She has written the Slayers trilogy as well as the Erasing Time series under this name.


Rallison's books are upbeat and uplifting stories that are for pleasure and entertainment. She writes on her website that "If your teacher asks you to identify symbolism in my books, you have my permission to tell him/her that I didn’t put any in." She has however stated that the element of forgiveness is very prevalent in her books and would be what she would classify as the overarching theme of her writing.
