Five Secrets From Author Cynthia Woolf

Today you learn five secrets about Cynthia Woolf or her book!  

I've known Cynthia for a long time and it's been a pleasure watching her career sky-rocket upwards. She is the award winning and best-selling author of nine historical western romance books and one short story with more books on the way. She was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in the mountains west of Golden. She spent her early years running wild around the mountain side with her friends.

Their closest neighbor was one quarter of a mile away, so her little brother was her playmate and her best friend. That fierce friendship lasted until his death in 2006.

Cynthia was and is an avid reader. Her mother was a librarian and brought new books home each week. This is where young Cynthia first got the storytelling bug. She wrote her first story at the age of ten. A romance about a little boy she liked at the time.

Cynthia loves writing and reading romance. Her first western romance Tame A Wild Heart, was inspired by the story her mother told her of meeting Cynthia’s father on a ranch in Creede, Colorado. Although Tame A Wild Heart takes place in Creede that is the only similarity between the stories. Her father was a cowboy not a bounty hunter and her mother was a nursemaid (called a nanny now) not the ranch owner.

Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and the great friends she's made at CRW for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.

Hi Cynthia, please tell us Five Secrets we may not know about SEDUCED BY A SINNER or you, but will after today!

1)    I’ve worked in lots of different professions. I’ve been a waitress, janitor, deputy assessor, appraiser, accountant, store manager, tourist booth manager

2)    Seduced by a Sinner and the other Destiny in Deadwood series were inspired by the DEADWOOD television series on HBO and a trip to Deadwood itself

3)    My husband and I have been together for 38 years but only married for 18 of those.

4)    I was eight years old before we got indoor plumbing. I took baths in a long metal tub in the kitchen on Saturday nights. The kids bathed first and Dad bathed last. Seems to me, it should have been the other way around, I’m sure we were dirtier.

5)   I want a miniature horse for a pet. I’ll put in a horsey door and everything.

Zach Anderson is a desperate man. He needs to find a killer before the man destroys Zach’s entire family. He also must convince one Lily Sutter, the woman he loves, that she loves him and wants to marry him.
Neither task is an easy one.

Lily Sutter is a sinner. Just ask anyone in Deadwood. She had a baby out of wedlock and she doesn’t deny it. She was seduced and left by one man; she refuses to be taken in by another. The fact that Zach makes her blood boil and her heart race, just by being near, has nothing to do with anything.
