Don't miss this exciting new series "Trained To Kill - A Detective Oliver Rousseau Novel" and find out why it is garnering 4 and 5 Star reviews at Amazon.

As an avid reader, I like a "series" and I try to put into my books what I like reading. I like to follow the characters as they progress and develop book after book, and novels should be entertaining. The Detective Oliver Rousseau series is a fast-paced, fun, entertaining read with action and suspense, for men and women of all ages.

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.

Smashwords Interview

Why do you think readers are so excited about your books?
I think what readers like is the fact that I created a series you don't normally see by using psychics to help solve the crimes. My books are not overpowering with the Paranormal aspect by any means (they are detective novels) but it does play a crucial role in my series. The characters are likeable and believable, and according to the reviews people want to know more about this family.
What is your writing process?
Every morning with a cup of coffee in hand, and Joey (my mixed Terrier) near my feet, I review what I wrote the day before and the story takes off. While I'm writing one book, I'll hear something interesting on the news and I'll think that would make a good story. So as I'm writing one book I'm always thinking ahead about the next one and taking notes.
