Aloha to Cynthia Eden, DEADLY HEAT and DEADLY LIES
DEADLY HEAT, This book will light up the night with romance and scary suspense DEADLY LIES, When you have nothing left to fear what still scares you? bio, (Back in the day…) Cynthia graduated summa cum laude from the University of South Alabama where she studied Sociology (because people interest her) and Communication (because she likes to write about said people). Cynthia has worked as a college admissions counselor, a teacher, and as an editor. But now, Cynthia is thrilled to be spending her days making up stories. Kim: Did working as a counselor, teacher and editor improve your skills as a writer? Cynthia: I think all of those jobs have helped me—just in different ways. J Being a counselor helped me to better understand why people act the way they do (so this helped with character motivation). Being a teacher helped me to learn some intensive research techniques (history was my subject, so I was always digging around in the past!), And, finally, being an editor helped me to recognize plotting and pacing issues—it gave me the tools I needed to be able to approach my own work with a more objective eye.
Kim: You are a paranormal master venturing into romantic suspense with your Deadly series. What inspired the change in genre? What was the most rewarding and the most challenging?
Cynthia: I noticed that when I wrote my paranormal stories, romantic suspense elements kept creeping into the tales. I didn’t just have demons in my paranormals; instead, I had serial killing demons. I had stalkers. I had detectives who were shifters and bounty hunters who were white tigers. Suspense elements just wouldn’t stay out of my stories! So, I decided I’d try my hand at writing a straight suspense (straight meaning none of my beloved paranormal creatures). The result of my experiment was DEADLY FEAR, my first Deadly book.
