Interview with Cynthia Woolf
Our party-guest of honor today is Cynthia Woolf, please join me in welcoming her!
How did you get started writing?
I wrote my first story when I was about ten. It was a romance about me and a little boy I liked. I also wrote some very depressing poetry. I decided that poetry was not for me and stuck to romance.
What genre(s) do you write in and why?
I have a historical western romance and a sci-fi romance out now. The sci-fi is the first in a series. I write in these genre’s because they are the ones whose stories reached out to me. The western was the first book I wrote and was inspired by my parents love story. It’s set on the same ranch that they met on in 1941. My book is set in 1885, so it’s not their love story. My dad was a cowboy and trapper but to the best of my knowledge was never a bounty hunter.
The sci-fi series was done because of dreams I had when I was a teenager. I knew I was a princess from Alpha Centauri. There was no way I could belong to the crazy family I had. Of course, I adore that crazy family now.
What is your favorite part of writing?
My favorite part is what I call the ‘puking’ phase. Just getting it all down on paper for the first time. You just let if flow out of you, not caring, for the moment, if it is good or bad.
What is your favorite dessert or food?
Carrot cake with cream cheese icing. My mother made the best. Since she passed away in 2008 I haven’t been able to find any that are as good. And believe me I’ve looked.
What is most difficult for you to write? Characters, conflict or emotions? Why?
The hardest for me to write is conflict. I avoid conflict in my real like as though it was the plague. So I tend to try and do that with my characters as well. Thank goodness for my critique group who are like an enforcer and make me put in the conflict the story needs.
What is your next project and when will it be released?
My current book is called TAME A WILD WIND. It is the second book in the western series and was released on March 9, 2012.
Now I’m working on the second sci-fi series called the Swords of Gregara. The first book in the series is JENALA, the second is RIZA and the third is TALA.
Who does your covers? They are fantastic.
One of my dear friends, critique partner and fellow author, Jennifer Zane does my covers. She is multi talented. Her current release is Gnome on the Range. It’s a hysterically funny book about what can happen when a woman buys a couple of garden gnomes at a garage sale for her sons. Try the book you’ll love it.
All of my books are available on Amazon.
