Cindy Brown has been a theater geek (musician, actor, director, producer, and playwright) since her first professional gig at age 14. Now a full-time writer, she’s lucky enough to have garnered several awards (including 3rd place in the 2013 international Words With Jam First Page Competition, judged by Sue Grafton!) and is an alumnus of the Squaw Valley Writers Workshop.

Though Cindy and her husband now live in Portland, Oregon, she made her home in Phoenix, Arizona, for more than 25 years and knows all the good places to hide dead bodies in both cities.

I really liked her positive energy, so I checked out the Henery books and thought they looked very professional. Then on the way back to the airport, I talked to Susan M. Boyer, who couldn't say enough good things about Henery. I feel very lucky to be with them - they're great book people, and just plain nice. (less)

I try to spend the majority of my time working on my next book (about four hours a day, plus another chunk of time once or twice a week), about an hour a day on social media (many authors spend a lot more time than I do), and probably another 6 -10 hours a week on other types of promotion. Luckily, my publisher (Henery Press) is very hands-on, so I spend little time on publishing details, unless you count edits:)

By the way, thank you for recommending "Home to Woefield." I really enjoyed it and don't think I would've found it without your recommendation.

Hope you enjoyed "Macdeath." And just FYI, I'm giving away an advanced reader copy of the next book, "The Sound of Murder," next week!(less)

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”
Theodore Roosevelt
