cynwritetalkPeople often wonder what it is I do since I write so many different things and I love doing various things. There is a phrase my friends and family know. “A bored Cyn is a dangerous Cyn.” This is known as a truism in my house. If I’m bored–things can get deadly or very dangerous. I start getting into trouble. Thus, it’s one reason when it was discovered one of my health issues included my slight manic need to know and that I get slightly obsessed in that phase– things started falling into place. My therapist laughed at me and started assigning me homework on various topics in regards to me getting better to help me understand my own condition. Honestly, it really helped. Strange, but there you go. What it also means is when I research- I tend to over-research because I have this intense need to know everything. Some people think it’s weird, but it makes me a quick “expert” in things which is beneficial when it comes to writing.  (more…)

I had a great time with my family, but I knew when I got home, things were going to change for me both at my day job and for my writing. Little did I realize how true that would be. My left hand, which is my dominant hand, has been giving me issues for a while, stepped it up even more. I’m now wearing my hand braces more. Worse, I have to wear the compression gloves pretty much every day at work and at home. When I see my specialist, I have a feeling we’ll be negotiating on cortisone shots and possible surgery. *whimpers* Until then, I’ve indulged in some pleasures– reading, learning about real food, my aromatherapy, and indulging in my energy readings.  (more…)

What is happiness? For many people it means many different things. For me, it means giving to those who have supported me. In this case, it means readers. I’m thrilled to join up with some great authors this month to do a fantastic giveaway. How fantastic? Let’s take a look! (more…)

It’s out! It’s out! I’m so excited! I cannot stand it! I’ve gone and giggled, pointed, and jumped up and down! Pirate Queen’s Rebellion is out! I couldn’t be more thrilled right now. It means the world to me to have this book out. I’ve worked so hard for so long and finally it’s here. More importantly, this book is part of my heart, part of my soul. It’s also part of my thank you for my male– to thank him for standing by me while I relearned how to write again. To thank him for sharing his secret fantasies and listening to mine. For letting me take one of his and making it my own. Because the heart of this story is actually his.  😉
