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.
