April Cronin

Biography

At just 30 years old, I have lived a pretty full life already.

My adolescence was anything but ordinary and though I have been through some things that I would not wish on anyone, I definitely feel like I have come out a much better person than I could have been.

I went pretty wild in my youth, did some things that I am not so proud of, and others so fun I would do them all over again if I had the chance.

Everything has shaped me into the person I am today, and for that, I would not change a thing, even the bad stuff.

I will be honest, I never dreamt of being a writer, I wanted to be in Law enforcement, but the birth of my oldest son changed everything for me, and I had to rethink my entire future.

Hardships forced me to take jobs I did not want, and the birth of my second child led me down the path of stay at home mom.

If it were not for the books I read on a daily basis, I would probably have gone insane by now. I love my children, but a little adult interaction goes a long way.

But I had a dream one night, and it bothered me, it bothered me so much I decided I just had to write it down.

And once those floodgates opened...well... the rest is, as they say, history.

I hope everyone will enjoy the characters I have created and will continue to create, they mean a lot to me, mostly, they keep me sane, and I have tried very hard to make them as real as possible as well as believably flawed.

I love getting to know new people and encourage everyone to reach out to me! I am VERY responsive!

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Contractual Attraction is the first story I've written, and I'm following it up with a hockey related romance series that I hope everyone will enjoy!
What is your writing process?
I write down my concept, then expand on the characters, their backgrounds, family, where they live etc. then get to work on the plot. I write out of order usually, whatever strikes, going over the conversation in my head a million times until I can get it down, then fill in the gaps.
