Hi everyone! Today we have an interview with Author Cindy Ponds Newell.
What are my books about?
They are all about ghosts, with the exception of One Grave Secret, which is a serial killer thriller. My latest, Attached, also includes a demon.
What started my interest in writing?
I've always been fascinated in ghosts, so why not write about them?
What do I do when I'm not writing?
I love going to yard sales, thrift shops, crafting and reading. I also love working in flowers and being with my three children and my husband of twenty years.
How long did it take me to write my first manuscript?
The norm for all of my novels is about two to three weeks. When the mood to write hits me, I'm on a roll!
What am I currently working on?
Two Grave Mistakes, the sequel to my psychological thriller, One Grave Secret. I plan to release this one in the fall, maybe sooner.
The first book I remember reading?
Gus The Friendly Ghost. I also read many of Carolyn Keene's Nancy Drew books. My fascination with ghosts and mysteries goes way back!
