Nora Crown


Nora Crown has loved books and movies ever since she can remember. Following this passion she decided to write stories encompassing the high speed dialogues of plays and the scene directives of screenplays combined within the easy to follow format of a novel!

The readers have the chance to imagine every setting as a scene in a movie . They get to choose their preferred actors and surroundings. The imaginative powers make the readers become part of the story rather than remain on the side lines as mere spectators.

Nora lives with her artist husband and their son in California. When not writing she is busy homeschooling their son, doing yoga, watching movies, reading, visiting museums and art galleries and going for long walks.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?

What's the story behind your book 'Nelly'?
Many years ago I came across the name Nelly. This name inspired me to write a romantic suspense story. And since I enjoy movies as much as I enjoy reading I decided to write the story as a crossing between novel and screenplay where the reader has the chance to imagine every setting as a scene in a movie. Later I was reassured in my choice of style by the introduction to "The Misfits" written by the greatest Playwright, Arthur Miller.
