Featured Author: RJ Crayton

RJ Crayton grew up in Illinois and now lives in a Maryland suburb of Washington, DC. She is a fiction writer by day and a ninja mom by night (What is a ninja mom, you ask? It's the same as a regular mom, only by adding the word ninja, it explicitly reveals the stealth and awesomeness required for the job of mom). Before having children, Crayton was a journalist, so all the stuff she wrote had to be true (sniff, sniff). She's worked at big publications like the Wichita Eagle and the Kansas City Star, and little publications like Solid Waste Report and Education Technology News. Life First is her first published novel. The sequel to this book will be out soon, so she hopes you enjoyed it enough to want more.

About the Author:

Is RJ Crayton your real name? Sort of. My name at birth was Rasheeda J. Crayton (and no, I won’t tell you what the J stands for). So, in that sense, RJ Crayton is my real name. I am currently married (not to Crayton, as that would be ewwww!), so I have a different last name. However, I write fiction under my maiden name.

What’s your family like? They’re all insane, like me! :) The family I was born into includes three brothers, one sister, and two parents. We spent a lot of time roller skating growing up and went on a lot of family vacations in the brown paneled station wagon. The family I picked (or was born to me) includes one husband and two kids. They’re a fun bunch, too, though slightly less insane than I am.

What’s your writing schedule like? I prefer to write when things are quiet, which is often in the morning after I’ve dropped the kids off for school, or late at night when everyone is in bed. I’m most productive in the mornings, and after lunch, I do best writing nonfiction–blog items, articles, that kind of thing.
