Author Interview & Book Giveaway: Silver Knight by Caron Rider

Welcome to Author Caron Rider

Initially I started teaching computer software, hardware, and networking in the 1990s. After some years that morphed into tutoring high school dropouts for the GED. I found working with at-risk teenagers so rewarding that I changed my undergraduate major to Education. Upon graduating from the University of South Alabama with a B.S., I began teaching high school history. I now live in rural Missouri with my two kids, two dogs, two cats, and loving father.


What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
French toast!

One food you would never eat?

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
Because you’ll enjoy going on an adventure where demons and heroes from the past blend with history and action with just a hint of romance.

If you could jump into a book, and live in that world.. which would it be?
It would be Anne McCaffrey’s Pern, but only if I could be a dragonrider! Anyone who hasn’t read McCaffrey should start with Dragon Flight as it’s well worth the effort.

Who are your favorite authors of all time?
Andre Norton, Anne McCaffery, Dean Koontz, Lee Child, Stephen King and Terry Brooks.

What movie and/or book are you looking forward to this year?
The Hunger Games looks cool as does The Avengers and let’s not forget Breaking Dawn Part 2. Then there’s The Bourne Legacy, Ice Age: Continental Drift, Men in Black III, and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. I’m sure there’s more. As you can see, I’m a movie-o-holic!

What do you do in your free time?
Is there such a thing? Let me give you a little background. Since I graduated from high school (many, many years ago in a galaxy far, far away) I have worked and usually worked 2 jobs to make ends meet, sometimes 3 jobs. Last year my dad began to need more help around his house…he’s not ready for a nursing home but he shouldn’t live alone. So I quit my jobs (I taught high school history during the day, then taught night classes plus taught online classes to high school students), and moved to rural Missouri to help him out. Suddenly for the very first time in my life I was without a job and had free time. I was so excited…and sooo bored. My friends laughed at me because when they have free time they said they start a new hobby. So what did I do? I wrote a novel!

If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?
Careful, Craziness About to Ensue

Action or drama?
Why does there have to be an “or”? I like both but I just LOVE a good action flick!

What’s your favorite season/weather?
I love all the seasons perhaps because I lived in the south for so long and there it’s only hot, really hot, and super hot. So when I get to see very different aspects of nature, I just love it. That being said, I think Spring would have to be my all time favorite. I begin gardening and love to see the little plants make their way through their growth habits. Of course, one year I planted an almond tree. I loved that tree, would go out and talk to it even and what happens? It turns out to be a peach! Lol.

Regular or Diet?
I’m with Garfield on the whole diet thing…the word is DIE with a T. So I’m a regular kinda gal.

Cats or Dog?
How could you possibly choose? They are both sooo sweet (most of the time). I have two of each.

How did you celebrate the sale of your first book?
I started my second. And if that wasn’t enough, my brother put a countdown on my website to tell me the day it had better be out! Even when I’m not writing (especially when I’m not writing) I hear little tick tock sounds in my head. I don’t know if I can take it until June!
