I'd like to welcome Cynthia B Ainsworthe today! I'm also celebrating CHRISTMAS in JULY, so be sure to grab my FREE and 99¢/99£ books HERE!
Cynthia has been kind enough to answer some questions AND is offering an ebook giveaway to three lucky commenters!!!
1) Tell us about your most embarrassing moment. (Book related or not)
When I was 19, and dinning in a very exclusive restaurant at a formal event in a hotel restaurant, my false eyelash fell into my soup. My date thought there was an insect of some sort floating in the broth.
2) How would you spend your “perfect day”?
My perfect day would start out with my husband’s kisses, snuggles from my poodles, and a visit with my daughter.
3) Be honest, do people you know ever make it into your books?
Traits of people I know will make up my fictional characters. No one character is an exact replica of any of my family members or friends.
4) Aside from writing, what are your hobbies?
I enjoy cooking French and Italian food. French culture is a favorite.
5) What are your bad habits?
I tend to procrastinate. I mull over a plot for quite a while before I put pen to paper, so to speak.
