**Author Peek** Character Interview with Mail Order Outlaw Heroine, Elizabeth Cobb

**AUTHOR PEEK** Character Interview with
Mail Order Outlaw Heroine, ELIZABETH COBB


INTRODUCING…Mail Order Outlaw Heroine, Elizabeth Cobb.

1. What is your name? Do you have a nickname?

Elizabeth Cobb but they call me Lizzie.

2. Who is your best friend? What kinds of things do you do when you’re together?

My best friend is Sally. She and I don’t get together very often. When we were kids we liked to play with our rag dolls or ride our horses. As adults, we barely get to see each other except when I go into the Tombstone Mercantile which she owns.

3. If you have a family, how do you get along with them? If you don’t, are there people in your life that you consider family? How do you get along with them?

My mother is Atina, she’s an Apache and very proud of it. She is wonderful and I love her very much. My baby brother is Jamie, he just turned eleven. I’m working the ranch until he grows up and can take it over. It’s his inheritance.

4. Do you have a birthmark? Scars? Where is it/are they? How did you get it/them?

Scars! Lots of them. You don’t get to be twenty-four years old on a ranch without earning lots of scars.

5. When you’re angry, what do you do? Where do you go? How do you deal with your anger?

I usually just go to my room and cry. Sometimes I’ll ride way out on the desert and scream up a storm, but I try to never lose my temper in public.

6. If you had to make me a meal right now, without going to the store, what would you find in your refrigerator to feed us?

First I don’t cook. Second, what is a refrigerator?

7. What’s the one thing you’re afraid of losing?

My ranch. I know it’s Jamie’s but it’s mine, too. My heart is here.

8. What makes you laugh out loud?

Mal Brandon, my fiancé, you’ll meet him in the book. He can always make me laugh with his antics. Especially when he was learning how to run a ranch. It was funny watching such a greenhorn. But he did everything, never balked at learning. He’s good that way.

9. Has anyone broken your heart? Who was he?

Yeah, I’ve had my heart broken. Who hasn’t. Mal was the one who broke my heart. Only those you love have the ability to hurt you that way and usually they don’t mean to. It just happens.

10. What’s the one thing you want out of life that you don’t think you can have? Why can’t you have it?

I never thought I’d be able to have a husband and family of my own because I’m a half-breed. I’m proud of it. I love my mother very much, but in this country being half Apache is a detriment to getting what you want.

    I have questions …. and they are none of my business lol
    Why won’t you and Jamie share the ranch? After all you are running it /keeping it working til he’s old enough to take over…. see none of my business.
    Thanks for the openness.
    Can’t wait to find out about your book.
    Good luck with the ranch
    Ty 4 the giveaway!

    • Hi Tina,
      I suppose Jamie and I could share. He doesn’t really want the ranch anyway, but he’s the boy and he’s the one who inherits. Jamie is interested in astronomy and reading science fiction books. Of course, all that could change, after all he’s only eleven.

  2. Bonnie Gonzales says:

    I would love to win the book, if I do I would do a review on 2 or 3 places.

  3. Karen Docter says:

    Welcome back to Karen’s Killer Book Bench, Cynthia! I always love to see what you have coming out. You’re so prolific! Your books are always great. Can’t wait to read this one! 🙂

  4. Glenda says:

    Thanks for the interview. Do we get to meet any other characters thru interviews?

  5. Connie Saunders says:

    Karen, I appreciate another great author interview. Cynthia, your book sounds great also!

  6. Melissa Keir says:

    What a great interview! I would be so proud of your mom. Her life is the part of history and she did an awesome job raising you and Jamie. 🙂

    All the best with your book, Cynthia.

  7. E. Ayers says:

    Being half Indian is a problem. Back in those days, the marriage between your mother and father is illegal and they could have been hanged from the nearest tree over it!

    We think things have changed in the last 100-150 years, and then we pick up the newspaper. Fortunately most of us are horrified at what we read.

    I’ve got to grab this book. You always write such wonderful tales.

    • Thanks for stopping by E. I know how tough it was for my parents. That was one of the reasons they lived in Tombstone, it was not much more than a stage stop on the way to Bisbee when they married. There wasn’t anyone to nay say them. Still, Cynthia chose to make it much easier for me, even though I still had a time of it. Plus she gave me Mal/Ed, who sees me for me and not the color of my skin.
