My interview with

Tuesday, September 27, 2011Welcome Rachel Cron
Good morning!

Please welcome Rachel Cron with today's interview!

How long have you been writing?
A: All my life. I have always written poems and songs. I started writing novels about three years ago.
When did you decide that writing erotic fiction was for you?
A: When I finished writing my first erotic novel. I have never even read a romance genre book, but now I’m hooked on both counts.
Are you comfortable with writing the sex scenes?
A: Comfortable, yes, although I do have a lot of anxiety in writing sex scenes because I want to get them just right.
Is there anything that inspires you to do these? Other books, porn…*laughs*
A: I love to read all kinds of books and to be honest, I have been with my husband for well over a decade and adult entertainment keeps the spice in our marriage. Every once in a while I will come across something and think, Hey that could be cool. I think my characters would do something like that, except without the trampoline. LOL! But my story ideas come from my very cluttered mind. My mind is always spinning and churning over scenarios and characters and situations. If I didn’t write them don’t I may hurt myself.
Who is your biggest supporter of your career?
A: My biggest supporter is definitely my husband and oldest daughter. We are a close nit family. They have always had my back, no matter what I decided to do.
What do you feel about erotica suddenly becoming more mainstream? Harlequin has a line and now, Avon will have a line of erotica romance books as well.
A: I think it’s about time. We all have fantasies and a sexual side. I never understood why society deems it so taboo. We are very open about things like that in our home. No subject is off limits, we make it clear that our children can ask us any question they like. My husband and I have open communication; we feel it keeps our family so close.
As an author, do you feel it’s important to be part of the national writer organizations like RWA?
A: Most definitely. I think it’s important for writers to stick together.
What frustrates you most about being a published author?
A: Nothing, it comes in third as the coolest thing I have ever been, right behind being a mother and wife.
What genre would you like to do that you haven’t tackled yet?
A: Vampires. I have some anxiety about writing about vampires. It seems everything has already been done and I would die if I stepped on anyone’s toes.
Recently, an author went after a blogger for a two star review. How would you have handled that and what is your stance on authors answering their critiques.
A: I would not have replied. People have their own opinions and they are entitled to them. There are a plethora of books that I don’t like…that’s not going to change. It’s not anything against the author’s; I just didn’t like the book. I would have read the review and learned from the criticism. Would it be hard? Oh, yeah. You need a tough skin in this business. People are not shy on either side of the fence. If they love it, you will know. If they hate it, you will know sooner. You have to take it with a grain of salt. I belong to a book club and we debate books all the time. I’ll love one and another will hate it. So goes the world of books. You just have to move on and keep on, keepin’ on.
Tell us a little about your latest projects and what books you have coming out next.
A: I’m working on the second and third books in my Warrior series. As many people know I am new to the writing world and am still building my fan base. The stories I’m working on are Riley’s and Able. Hopefully I will do them justice in the end. I love them so much; I’d hate to let them down…LOL!
What advice do you have for writers to be or those new to the industry?
A: don’t get discouraged and believe in yourself. Someone will want to read your stories.
Where can we find you?

Fun Questions
Boxers or Briefs?
A: Boxer-briefs…so sexy!
What celebrity man do you wish you could have but can’t?
A: Oh, so many. It is definitely a three way tie between Nicholas Cage, John Cusack and Greg Graffin.
A perfect date with Karaoke and tacos on the hood of a car. ;) (That was my husband and mine first date.)
Give me an erotic scene off the top of your head in 5 sentences or less.
A: Slowly, she relaxed as a warm heat slowly waved over her body. Her thighs fell open, and her pussy slowly relaxed as he stretched her ass with his thumb. Unconsciously, her hips rocked back and forth as she fucked him back. She could feel her juices drip down to where he penetrated her nether hole as his tongue pushed her higher.

The character in one of your books that you identify with?
A: Rainne Stanton: She is me

Where has all the tolerance gone?

I’m not a television watcher, my family enjoys it, I prefer to read, write or cruise the internet. On my internet perusal’s I have found that as much as society screams about tolerance, it’s getting harder to find. I understand that people have opinions and certain ways that they would like to live and raise their children, but they seem to forget that theirs is not the only opinion out there. They can’t seem to understand that if everyone felt the same way we would live in a very boring world.
If I’m offended by something than it is my problem. What happened to just not buying wares from a company that went against your morals or turning the television channel is you didn’t like the show? I’d vote for turning the television off all together.
We have total transparency in our household. We do not lie to our children. Sure they think Santa brings those presents at Christmas and that the Easter bunny decorates our yard for a fun filled hunt on Easter morning. We consider those ‘things that make childhood fun’. When it comes to more important issues such as sex and drugs, we have total transparency. Explaining it in ways that are age appropriate and promote open discussions, I feel it’s important for my children to be educated about the facts and not afraid or judgmental of people or lifestyles that are different, or god forbid believe what their friends or other kids tell them. Our children are bombarded with things every day; I’m just thrilled that they come to my husband and me for clarity.
Our society is so diverse that we have to think for ourselves and there are always going to be people out there that are different than you. As long as they are not hurting anyone I don’t feel that’s it’s any of my business. I just remember the golden rule: Judging a person doesn’t define who they are, but it does define who you are.
