Cecily Gates’ superpowers include mixing stiff drinks and writing sappy novels. Often at the same time. She is an author of women’s fiction, co-mingling humor and sentiment to reveal the deep-rooted emotions that inspire us, draw us in, and make us fall in love. When she’s not writing, Cecily is devouring romance novels, hosting dinner parties, slinging GIFs on Twitter, and spending time with her boyfriend Jack. She lives in NYC.
Cecily also blogs for The Page Girls (www.thepagegirls.com), a website delivering weekly themed issues with short stories, book reviews, cocktail recipes, and more.
What is your writing process?
An elaborate system of 3x5 notecards, and a really big table.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I spent an obsessive amount of time on Twitter, both as @cecilywrites and @thepagegirls. Thanks to the folks I meet there, my TBR pile is precariously and gloriously long.
