Author Interview: Cynthia Roberts

June 15, 2010

Cynthia Roberts is the author of the adult-romance novel, Wind Warrior, which is currently available. Ms. Roberts is an extremely friendly person and I am so glad that my first adult-book review will be of her novel. I hope everyone enjoys reading the interview and if you’d like more information on Ms. Roberts and her writing, please visit her OFFICIAL WEBSITE.

Who or what inspired you to become a writer?

The passion was sooo inherent I just had to. I mean, ever since a Crayola was placed in my hand, I jibbered on paper. Sadly, life just got in the way and it has taken until my more mature years (chuckle chuckle ) before it was time for me.

Where did the idea for Wind Warrior originate?

The first romance I ever read was a novel from Cassie Edward’s Savage series and instantly became hungry to read more. I tracked down every one of those babies; let me tell you, until I read them all. Every historical Indian romance I read from that point on was based on a Plains tribe. I wanted to focus on a tribe indigenous to my area and decided to write a series based on the five tribes that make up the Iroquois League of Nations.

If you had to describe Wind Warrior in 3 to 5 words, how would you do so?

inspiring ~ captivating ~ emotionally raw

How have you grown as a person through writing?

I had this intimately beautiful conversation with someone who was blind some years back about their disability that has always stayed with me. She told me that loosing her sight was a blessing because she learned how to see the world through her other senses, which is something the seeing world takes for granted most of the time. It made me become more aware of sound, color, taste, texture and so many others which inevitably allowed me to be a more descriptive writer. I’ve also learned that I can accomplish anything if I simply believe in the essence of who I am.

What is your favorite part about being an author?

Just the sheer joy in learning that something I created brought absolute pleasure into someone’s life. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

Where do you hope your writing takes you?

To the big screen with A-List actors playing the lead roles.

What are three things your readers may not know?

I’ve been told I’m a sensitive … not psychic … but I have this sense about people when I meet them like feeling their bad or good energy. It has never proven me wrong. I’m extremely giving (sometimes too much to the point where I get hurt … gotta work on that one) and I’m a lady who loves her wine … red, white, blush it doesn’t matter.

When you’re not writing, how do you like to spend your time?

Why reading romance novels, of course J And I do … seriously. But I also love to spend time sucking the faces of my beautiful grandchildren ages 11 – 6 months Tyler, Ayden, Connor, Nicholas & Addison. I try and exercise every other day, take long walks when the weather allows (helps get those creative juices flowing) and cherish my closest and dearest friends.
