Charlene Raddon

She's been writing ever since and has had 5 paperbacks published by Kensington Books, and two e-books by Tirgearr Publishing.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up south of Los Angeles so I guess I'm a city girl, but my heart belongs to the country. I hated living in the city and always dreamed of moving to a small town. Even as a child I was sure I had been born in the wrong century. I thought I would like being a pioneer or at least a farmer. Now that I'm grown up, I know better the hardships pioneers endured. Don't think I'd make a good farmer either. But I'd still love to live in the country. I've always loved the Old West. That and a love of romance are what drove me to begin writing my own books.
When did you first start writing?
My writing career started late. I meant to be an artist but somehow ended up creating pictures with words instead of oils or water colors. It was a dream that actually inspired my first book. It was so vivid I dragged out a typewriter and began writing. I've been writing ever since, over thirty years now.
