Rachel Cron

Average Rating:

My name is Rachel Cron. I have lived in Fort Myers, Florida for over 30 years. I’m happily married and the mother of two. I’m also the grandmother of two. Growing up around English teachers and musicians, books and music have been a constant in my life. They have help shape me into the person I am today. My inspiration for my books stem from my life, the people I’ve met, the things I’ve done or the things I have weathered through. Pair that with an overactive imagination and…here we are. I’m a firm believer in family and laughter. Why are we here if we’re not enjoying ourselves?

Q: What would you say is your biggest inspiration, not only in writing but in life?

A: Music and books. It’s actually a toss-up between the two. They are the best emotional outlets. For every occasion, day or mindset there is a song to accompany it or that perfect book to accentuate that mood.

Q: This is your first novel, yes? Have you written anything before and did you always strive to be a writer?

A: I’ve always written things, poetry, short stories and songs. I always wrote for myself or friends. It never occurred to me to be a writer. Looking back now I wonder, why? My mind is always moving, it’s hard to turn it off some days. I wonder why I never found this outlet on a grander scale before now.

Q: What prompted you to start writing if writing wasn’t ever a major goal?

A: I suffered a traumatic experience. I had a stalker. When it was resolved I had nightmares and was showing signs of stress. My husband suggested I write about it…so I did. I wrote the book by accident. It started out as a journal entry of sorts, my thoughts and feelings about that experience. Soon it seemed to morph into something totally different and wonderful. I started to enjoy the story and add in little extras. The next thing you know…here we are.

Q: What is your average writing day like?

A: I don’t really have writing days. I get up in the morning and get my family out the door then I go to work. Then I come home and it’s dinner and bed for the kids and I putter around doing wife and mother type things. If I get the spark to write I just write. Some days I write from dawn till dusk. Some days I don’t even think about it.

Q: Do you have any other books in progress?

A: Yes. I have the next two books in the Warrior series begun. Six more are still rattling around in my brain screaming to be let out.

Q: What type of books peak your interest?

A: I just love books. I love books about music and biographies, vampires and classics. Romance books are a new thing for me. I never read them until after I wrote one, now I’m hooked on them too. Reading has always been a big part of my life. I have a few English teachers in my family so books were always around.
