Cynthia Austin lives in Northern California with her

Before, I always felt alone in this aspect of my life, as no one around me shared my obsession over books, but now the doors to a whole new world have opened. Nothing makes me happier than to receive an email from a reader who wants to discuss my book... or any book for that matter.(less)
