**Author Peek** Interview with Cynthia Woolf

**AUTHOR PEEK** Interview with CYNTHIA WOOLF


1. How did you get started writing?

I wrote my first story when I was ten.  Then in about 1992 I started writing a novel with two friends of mine.  A round robin about pirates.

2. What genre(s) do you write in and why? 

I write historical westerns and scifi romance.  They are both about good vs evil and the good guy wins.

3. What is your favorite part of writing? 

The “puking” phase where you are just getting it out on to the paper.

4. What is your least favorite part of writing

Editing is the worst.  I totally hate it.

5. Where do you get the ideas for your stories? 

I have no idea where they come from any more.  They just show up and demand that I put thim on paper.  Of course, then I have to go back and fill in what they left out.

6. What is your typical day like

I have insomnia, so my day is never typical.

7. What is most difficult for you to write?  Characters, conflict or emotions? Why?

Conflict is my least favorite.  I hate to punish my characters.

8. Tell us about your next book & when is it being published? 

My latest book is THE SWORDS OF GREGARA – RIZA.  It just came out last week.  Here is the back cover blurb:

Riza Lamrona was a highly sought after plastic surgeon on Alarcon.  In a society dependant on machines for their health care, she’s one of the few who can change the human body not just fix it like a machine.  Unfortunately she has the misfortune to be the best at her job and when notorious space pirate wants to evade the authorities by changing his appearance he finds Riza.  Now that the job is done he wants her dead to keep his new identity a secret.

Darick Remaul is a former Space Patrol Detective who now owns a profitable kalcion mine on the planet Gregara.  It’s as far away from his former life as he could get.  Darick has secrets of his own but recognizes someone in trouble when he sees them.  Especially when it’s a beautiful woman.  When a bounty hunter threatens her life he offers her a safe haven at his mine as their new doctor.  But who will keep her safe from him?
