Caron Vikre Mixes Novel with Songwriting
SacTV.com "Video of the Day" review by
Alex Cosper on November 2, 2013
Caron Vikre talks about how she's writing her first novel after
many years of songwriting. The story is about a songwriter whose songs are actually Caron's compositions.
"I'm probably on the last chapter of the first draft, so I have a ways to go," she says. "I'm looking to
actually finish it probably sometime next year." She says she has always thought of herself as a writer
since she thought of herself more as a songwriter than a performer. She reveals that she stopped doing music,
not by her choice, but due to a problem with a nerve in her face interfered with her singing. So she decided
to write. "I figured with my first book," she says, "I'd save myself a lot of trouble if I sort of expanded
upon worlds that I've known." Since she knows what it's like to be a songwriter and to live with a painter
and someone who has run a store. These real life experiences are helping to shape her novel.
