I read constantly -- and a lot of it is nonfiction, as it is for most of us. Even when we're no longer in school, there is a good deal of "required reading" in our lives. My goal is to provide quick, easy, fun reads for those times when we need a vacation from current events. Laughter is healthy -- for mind and body. 
All the nonfiction we have to read each day is our broccoli. An Iris Chacon novel is pure dessert.

Reading is our cheapest, fastest, most effective and accessible tool for exploring the universe. I've been to Nebraska and I've been to the planet called Dune. I've seen the outsides and insides of real and fictional people. And I've become whoever I wanted to be in every story I entered.

Fellow Trekkies, remember Mr. Spock telling Captain Kirk, "The more complex the mind, the greater the need for play"? Well, our 21st century world has become so complex that our minds can't even keep up -- and diversion is more important than ever to our mental health.

That's why I write novels designed to divert our busy minds from our grimy streets, dusty houses, dirty laundry, unwashed kids and unbathed dishes -- or maybe the other way around -- and Internal Revenue forms. Grab an Iris Chacon novel! Come play with me!
