Born in the Midwest, I live in New York's scenic Hudson Valley Region with my husband and two sons. A huge reader since childhood, I penned my first full length novel in high school on a typewriter in my parent's living room.

Magic-Price, the first book in The Crown of Stones trilogy, was not only my first published novel, but a lifelong dream come true. With the trilogy complete, I'm excited to be diving into new territory with Nite Fire, an urban fantasy series featuring shapeshifters, dragons, and parallel worlds.

If you're looking for puppies, rainbows, and sweet romance, you won't find that here. My stories tend to run dark and adult, and if I wrote about vampires, they most definitely would not sparkle!

Here’s what I wished someone had said to me a long time ago:

•Write every day. Even if it’s only a paragraph and you throw it out tomorrow, just write. Flexing your creative muscle day in and day out makes a difference. It helps you find your voice.

•Share your stories. Find someone you can trust to give you an honest critique.

•Don’t isolate yourself. Connect with others like you; Twitter, Facebook, a writer’s group. Many aspiring authors are in the same boat and it’s no fun sitting in it alone.

•Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Leave your comfort zone. It’s nice and safe in there, but nothing will ever happen if you don’t step out.

•Believe in yourself. Don’t undervalue what you’re doing. If you write, you’re a writer.

You need to keep reading, as well. Don’t stick to the genre you write in, read across all genres. Get a feel for how a story goes together, for how other authors handle plot, scene structure, etc. It’s okay to emulate other authors at first. If you keep writing, your own style will emerge.

I’m also writing the first draft of the third book. I’m about ¾ of the way done, but I’ve recently put it aside so I can concentrate on getting Magic-Scars ready for its release. I'm finding ending a trilogy very different from starting one. It's actually kind of sad. I've lived with these characters for so long. I definitely plan on revisiting some of them down the road.

New Audiobook Release

Immerse yourself in the time-spanning epic tale of Ian Troy in a whole new way! Magic-Price (The Crown of Stones, #1) by C.L. Schneider Magic-Price is now on Audible! It has been a fun and exciting journey working with my talented narrator, Daniel Storm, and I couldn't be more pleased with the finished product.

In the beginning, though, I was hesitant. I wanted to offer my stories in all formats, but I was far from an expert. I had no idea what wo... Read more of this blog post »
