Interview with Cindy Pantoja

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I can set free my inner self.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Cycling and trail running.
Describe your desk
Computer, coffee, iced water, journal, stack of random books, my cat taking a nap behind my laptop, my two dogs fighting for a spot under my desk, and lost of sticky notes I often forget what they should remind me of.
What do you read for pleasure?
I'll read pretty much anything, whatever is near me or any suggestion by local library.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Ines Del Alma Mia, Deshoras, Mockingjay, Blood Promise, and Eclipse. They all have a part of the story where the author makes you feel the character's sorrow, they have made me cry more than once and I love it.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
My childhood friends are my best promoters.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'm a full time mom and pet owner it's hard to keep up with datelines.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My dogs scratching the door to get out.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I was 3 years old and my sister read me a story about a bunny who found a coin and didn't know how to spend it. After going through about 3 different plans, the bunny end up buying a guitar, then,he sat under a willow and play his guitar. I never forgot the bunny playing a guitar under a willow, I still find my self thinking how that author came up with that story.
Who are your favorite authors?
Isabel Allende and Richelle Mead
