Author: Carolyn Crane

I write romantic suspense, urban fantasy, and some books that don’t have any genre at all. I’ve been published by Random House, Samhain, and self published, too. I guess I get around!

I live in Minnesota (complete with an accent that people sometimes laugh at) in an old 1920′s condo with my awesome writer husband and two cats. I love to run and also to read, even though I’m probably the slowest reader ever. And I love to eat chocolate and Mexican food, and if you invite me to your party, your cheese plate will be in even more danger than one of my suspense heroines.

Also, I use too many exclamation marks, I care deeply about animals and finding ways to help them, I work a day job as a freelance marketing writer, and I dream that someday I’ll having the time to do all the crafts in the many craft newsletters I subscribe to. But I guess I’m having too much fun throwing my favorite characters into dangerous and sometimes steamy adventures.

Though I'm an author, I'm mostly here on Goodreads as a writer/reader, to focus on my fave books, sometimes to rave about them, other times go under the hood and think about what was really working for me. Thinking about what works in books is a way I improve as a writer. (Well, hopefully, anyway! LOL.)
