  1. Hi! I really enjoyed this author interview :). As an author myself, I find myself relating to so many things Cynthia said. It's funny, but my third grade teacher was influential, as well, in my writing career! When I was in 5th grade, she let me come back to her 3rd grade class and read a book I wrote and illustrated about two sisters who ran away from their stepmother and had to survive the Australian outback, haha :)

    I also relate to her because 9 times out of 10 when I write, I have to drink hot tea! Lately, I"ve been going to this tea house and I'll drink this piping hot roobius tea infused with chocolate and a delicious lemon bar!

    Her book sounds great and I will most definitely have to check it out. I love your website, Laura, and I'm glad we connected through twitter! I majored in English Literature, as well. I loved reading and exploring thought. Yet, I must confess, during my boring classes, (Linguistics, Critical Analysis of Literature) I found myself "writing stories" instead of "Taking notes" :)

    Your bio says you're a mother of 4 children. Wow! That's great and you look so young! Are you writing a WIP?

    Just finished the Whole Package - What a Hoot! I loved everything about this fabulous story of friendships that are so familiar; humor, love, and shared memories that triumph over crisis. This is more than just a light summer read ~ it’s a blast. Go, Cynthia, go!
