When she’s not writing, L.N. Cronk can be found teaching middle school students the joys of working with two-step equations and Punnett squares. Although she’s been writing for her entire life, it wasn’t until the completion of her first book that everything fell into place. Chop, Chop not only became an award-winning, top-rated novel, but started the series of a lifetime as well. L.N. Cronk lives with her husband and their four children (two human and two of the springer spaniel variety) in the Christmas tree capital of the world in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina, where she is almost always working on a novel (or seven!).
