**Author Peek** Interview with Cynthia Woolf


**AUTHOR PEEK** Interview with Author, CYNTHIA WOOLF

Before we get started talking about your writing, tell us a little about yourself, where you’re from, what you do for a living (if you’re not a fulltime writer) what hobbies you have, etc. Whatever you’d like to share.

I’m married to the love of my life and write full time now.  I was laid off in June of 2011 and it’s turned out to be the best thing that could have happened for me.  I decided then and there to write full time and see if I could make a living at it.  Thankfully I am and so I write full time now.

I like to garden, especially the planting, not the weeding.  I also like to fish and to read.  Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to go fishing in a few years.  Just too much else going on.

1. How did you get started writing? 

I started writing at a young age.  My first story was when I was about ten and concerned me and a little boy I had a crush on.  I still remember his name, David Williams.  And no, I have no idea whatever became of him.

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

I write in two genres.  Scifi/futuristic and western/historical.  I like the idea of pioneers and cowboys whether on the frontier of earth in the 1880’s or in the frontier of space in 2013.

3. What is your favorite part of writing? 

Brainstorming.  Coming up with the scenes for the book and talking with my critique partners who help me brainstorm my book.

4. What is your least favorite part of writing

Writing the sagging middle.  That’s where I usually get stuck.  Trying to write when nothing seems to be working is another bad part of the process and something that we all have to work through.

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

Everywhere.  Dreams.  TV.  Movies.  Sitting at Starbucks.  You just never know when an idea is going to strike.

6. What is it that makes your writing different from all the others in your genre? 

Me.  I’m what makes it different.  I don’t write like anyone else and no one else writes like me.  We all have our own styles.

7. Are you an avid reader?  When you do read someone else’s writing, what is your favorite genre? 

I love to read all genre’s.  Right now I’m on an erotica and contemporary short romance kick.  Before that it was historical.  I’m getting ready to change it up again and have some paranormals in my sights.  I’m enjoying stories about werewolves right now, too.

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

I just published my book Heiress Bride on March 19th.  It’s the second story in my Matchmaker & Co series about mail order brides.

  1. Thank you for haivng me this week, Karen. I think it will be fun.

  2. Roxy Boroughs says:

    Hi Karen. Hi Cynthia.

    Interesting that a job layoff led you to follow your heart and commit to your writing. A true ‘when life hands you lemons, make lemonade’, moment. And a great reminder to all of us to look at the end of something, not as a setback, but as an opportunity.

  3. You are absolutely right Roxy. I’m definitely making lemonade. 🙂

  4. D'Ann Lindun says:

    Great interview!

  5. Hi Cynthia, like you, my favorite part of starting a new book is getting together with my critique partners and brainstorming. Oh, the wild ideas, but great ones, we all come up with.
    Good luck with your book.

  6. Waving, Cynthia. How fun to get to know you better. I have just gotten into reading new genres myself. My CP writes about werewolves and vampires so that has now found a way into my reading.Historicals will always be my first love, though.

    Best of luck with your book. Great cover, by the way!

  7. Karalee Long says:

    Hi, Karen and Cynthia. I read several genres, too, and am crazy about werewolves and vampires. My current book has a newby vampire getting help figuring his new “life” out from a wrong-man magnet. You’re such a fast writer, Cynthia, and your stories are fun to read. I’ll be looking forward to your paranormals.

  8. Thanks D:Ann, Lorrie, Nancy & Paisley for stopping by. I appreciate all the support.

  9. Hi, Cynthia. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. It’s always fun to read how authors get their ideas and how they started writing.

  10. Thanks Patricia. I’m glad you stopped by.

  11. Thanks for stopping by Karalee. Your new book sounds interesting. I’m glad you enjoy my stories.
