Carolynne Raymond



Thank you for stopping by to read my details.

I have published a couple of books, "A Life Cycle Reborn", which is a Sci-Fi novel that is mixed with a bit of time travel. My second book, "Newbie Author - This Chick's Journey to Becoming a Self-Published Author"; is a journal of my experience with self-publishing.

In my spare time, I love to take photos, paint, garden and write. I love to read Fiction. My favorite genres are Fantasy, Romance, and Sci-Fi, but will read other genres every so often. I enjoy and appreciate creativity. It is an escape for me.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love to read, and the challenge to be able to write a story and see a project through to the end is what drew me in.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love the creativity of it with being able to get lost in the story. I love to make scenes, characters and be able to take a step back and tie everything together. It is a fun process.
