About Cynthia Townley

Find out why Trained To Kill - A Detective Oliver Rousseau Novel is garnering 4 and 5 Star reviews at Amazon.

As an avid reader I like series novels. I like the fact I can follow the characters as they progress and develop book after book. I have purchased many such novels and I understand the writer's determination to keep writing them as long as they sell. But I believe there comes a time when the material gets stale, or the characters become so twisted we have to say goodbye to those that have become favorites and start fresh elsewhere. As a new writer, I hope to recognize that and not continue down a path that leads to reviewers writing, "Huh? What's she doing to that character?", "Stop demoralizing that character!" or worse, "I'm not buying any more of your books."

I also believe novels should be entertaining. The Detective Oliver Rousseau series is not intended to be government spy novels, but I have introduced Oliver's past government training in Trained To Kill to expand the storyline in future books. This series is not hardcore espionage; no more than writing psychics into the storyline make it a paranormal novel, although I may expand on that in the future.

The Detective Oliver Rousseau series is intended to be fun, entertaining crime fiction, with action and suspense, for men and women of all ages. And don't be surprised to find me writing in genres other than crime fiction in the future.

I live in Houston, Texas with my husband and I am working on my next novel. Please visit me on Facebook at Mystery-Crime-Novelist-Cynthia-Townley or drop me a comment on Facebook at Cynthia Townley.

I am 53 years old and have read thousands of book. Im an avid reader. Mrs. Townley pulls you into her book asnd makes the physic visions realistic. As the strory progresses so does the writing and the characters grew until I was completely hooked. I didnt want the story to end. I will definitrly purchase the whole series.

A friend recommended this book because I love a good suspense thriller and I loved it. I had heard that the writer was giving away free copies to our deployed soldiers and if I didn't know anything else about the writer or her book that would be good enough. I just want to think the writer for supporting our armed forces and I loved your book. Thanks and I am looking forward to the next one.
