Five Things You Need to Know . . .
At this point in my life, I am consumed, possessed, obsessed about writing fiction. And Loving It!
I love book signings, too, and any opportunity to meet new friends and readers.
I spend half of my time living and writing in a log cabin in the mountains of Colorado.
My 3rd boyfriend was Elvis Presley’s last rhythm guitar player. (Stop doing the math.)
I was an avid reader all my life, but my genius brother could read when he was only two years old; a tough act to follow.
Five More That I’m Willing to Admit . . .
Most women lie about their age; I lie about my height.
I hated writing until 1984. (Again, stop doing the math; don’t over think this one.)
If I get too close to freshly baked bread, it will disappear.
My big toes are . . . really big.
During my college days, sitting around with my “intellectual” friends, we’d drink coffee and smoke cigarettes while discussing important things. I think I was the only one faking it in all three areas. But, I do drink coffee now.
Cricket Rohman grew up in Estes Park, Colorado, and spent her formative years among deer, bobcats, coyotes and beautiful blue columbine. Today she is a full-time author writing about the great outdoors, teachers, dogs, love, laughter, and life’s little mysteries—think romantic suspense.
Prior to writing, Cricket’s career path included the following jobs: actor, singer, audio/video producer, classroom teacher, school principal, and U of A, College of Education assistant professor.
Cricket’s latest work includes three romantic mysteries in The Lindsey Lark Series:
Book 1 WANTED: AN HONEST MAN
Book 2 LETTERS, LOVERS, & LIES
Book 3 HIT THE ROAD, JAKE!
And, yes. All three books are works of fiction. REALLY! (Well, except the part about the dog; Cricket really had a dog like Wendell, the mastiff, who appears in every book.)
