April Fool’s with Cynthia Woolf!

I’m so excited to have Cynthia Woolf here today! Here’s a little bit of background, in case you didn’t know.

Cynthia Woolf writes sci-fi romance and historical western romance. Her books include the sci-fi Centauri series, CENTAURI DAWN, CENTAURI TWILIGHT, and CENTAURI MIDNIGHT and TAME A WILD HEART. She has a second historical coming out in April titled TAME THE WILD WIND.

Buy Centauri Midnight

She lives in Colorado in a small town north of Denver with her husband of many, many years, Jim.
1.      Who was your first author crush and why?
 I think it was Victoria Holt.  I couldn’t get enough of her growing up.  My mother was a librarian and I always got the books as soon as the library had them. 
2.      What was your first clue you were a writer? Was it a long journey or a short one? Have you always known?
I wrote my first story when I was about ten.  It was about a little boy that I had a crush on.  I still remember his name.  David Williams.  He and his family moved to North Carolina and I never saw him again.  It’s been a long journey for me.  I didn’t know I wanted to be a writer.  I didn’t start writing for publication until 1990 and didn’t publish until 2011, so yeah, it’s been a long journey.
I didn’t always know that I would be a writer.  For most of my life I was a tax accountant.  It is a higher paying position than that of writer.
3.      What are some of your writer-esque quirks (do you have to be in your pjs? always facing the door? Do people look at you after something funny happens and say ‘that’s going in a book, isn’t it?’)?
I don’t have any writer quirks.  I don’t care what I wear, though I do get more done if I get dressed and don’t stay in my pj’s all day.  For some reason, being in my pj’s makes me lazy.
4.      Finish this joke: A clown, a priest and a writer all get onto an elevator…the clown tells a joke, the priest says a prayer and the writer makes notes for his next book.
5.      Speed round: Without giving it too much thought, pick which one you favour over the other:
