Cynthia Roberts

Biography

My love of reading romance fiction goes back to those early years when I was raising a young family. It wasn't until much later in life I actually took up the pen to write. I wish I could have gotten to this point in my career much sooner rather than later but, life simply got in the way far too many times. I know because of those detours I have become a more passionate and expressive writer because I can draw upon those painful moments in my past when I need to create the kind of raw human emotion I want my readership to feel. My wish is that my readers walk away with not just an entertaining read but the importance in knowing, "Without imagination & dreams, we lose the excitement of wonderful possibilities."

PLEASE leave a review to help others discover my work. I would be so very appreciative.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh god yes, like it was yesterday! It was, "A Show of Hands." By today's standards, I guess you would call it a YA because I wrote it for my son, Jason, who was 16 years old at the time. Jason was born nearly two months premature. God, he was a little bit of a thing, barely 11 inches long. We didn't know until his early elementary years he was borderline learning disabled. You think girls can be mean? The bullies in his classes were relentless once we had to place him in special comprehension classes. Back then, children like Jason fell between the cracks and didn't receive the individualized attention they deserved. It was so terribly heart-wrenching as a mom. I wrote it as a screen play and plan to convert it to a YA.
What is your writing process?
Would you believe, sit down and go at it :) I've always been that way. I don't write out an outline or long summary of what I think the book will be about. I kind of just get this idea in my head, sit down and just let it flow. All of my books have been like that. My Gramma, God rest her soul, told me I was blessed because the words generate from my soul up through my heart to my fingers. I think she was right with 4 books published and more on the way.
