About meKJ Kron grew up in a Catholic family in Fairfax, VA. In his third year in college he took a creative writing class, wrote a short story that won an award, and decided he wanted to write novels.

After graduating from James Madison University in 1989, KJ Kron moved to Kansas City to find a place to write free of distractions. He volunteered through the Catholic Church helping teenagers with drug problems where he wrote his first unpublished novel (Pinkie System). When the founder turned the place into a religious community, KJ quit and moved into a neighboring gospel singing church until he got on his feet. Eventually he came back to Northern Virginia with a new plan –work overnight in a psychiatric hospital. Four years later he finished his second unpublished novel (Five Guys Named Johnson) and took classes at George Mason University to get a teaching license and his masters’ degree in Education.

KJ Kron has taught English and creative writing for 15 years, two of them part-time so he could write Saint Peter Killed God. While teaching, KJ met a VIF (Visiting International Faculty) teacher from Spain. Two and a half years later they married. KJ agreed to spend summers and the winter breaks in Spain with his wife and son unless they moved to Spain. KJ is conversant in Spanish. The hope is that their son will grow up bilingual. KJ dreams of moving to Spain to work on more novels, but cannot afford it at the moment so he and his wife continue teaching.

About my libraryStarting with Indie authors that I've featured on my blog. Soon to expand to novels / books that inspired mine, and maybe eventually try to add more books I loved and didn't.
