I would ensure the shifter is in park or neutral when cranking. Even move the shifter handle sometimes. You could also have an issue with the Digital Transmission Range sensor. Tells the transmission and engine processor what gear you're in, to allow the starting mechanism to function.
Best to catch the concern in the act, then check it out.
Lastly, look to see if the antitheft system light is flashing when you turn the key on. If so, you may have a Passive Anti Theft system issue.
