But that first book was not enough. Once publishers bought it, she wrote another and another until her bibliography ballooned. Initially, Cindy was writing category romance novels, and while she enjoyed them, the desire to tell more ambitious stories eventually overwhelmed her.
So she made the leap and wrote that first romantic suspense novel (To The Edge). At the time, Cindy’s sales were respectable. But once she sank her teeth into the romantic suspense genre, she finally secured a spot on the New York Times bestseller list, an achievement every writer covets.
The accomplishment surprised Cindy because she thought it was unattainable. Cindy had encountered too many talented authors to believe that her books would ever secure bestseller status. But the author’s readers exceeded her expectations. They couldn’t get enough of her stories and showed their appreciation by spending their hard-earned money on her novels.
She is determined to reward their loyalty by writing high-quality romantic suspense. Cindy wants each book she releases to be more exciting and suspenseful than its predecessor. That obligation to prove herself to her audience drives Cindy to persevere when things get tough.
She takes great pleasure in the accolades she has received over the years, especially the RITA award because it is a vote of confidence from her peers. People have asked Cindy whether she’s thought about writing in a new genre.
Some of those people argue that the romantic suspense genre is overexposed. Cindy had a similar concern. She realized that the market was saturated with stories about covert warriors and the romantic relationships they had to wrangle.
But the publishing experts she has consulted on the issue have assured her that she has nothing to worry about. Romantic suspense is definitely overexposed. But the demand for the genre is just as strong.
Cindy doesn’t doubt that other genres will tempt her to abandon romance in the future. But for the most moment, she is content to ply her trade as a romantic suspense writer. She is particularly proud of the kick-ass heroines in her books.
The accuracy of her military fiction is not a fluke. She does extensive research, reading military procedural books and talking to experts in the military and private security.
Cindy encourages aspiring writers to finish their manuscripts. Many aspiring writers fail because they start manuscripts they never finish. Anyone can start a book. The tricky part is finishing it. Cindy wants aspiring writers to apply discipline to their craft. This means sticking with their manuscript even when it looks and sounds like the worst-written novel they have ever come across.
Every successful author struggles with those emotions of uncertainty until they finish and submit their first manuscript.

Gabriel Jones remembers Jenna. Why wouldn’t he? Gabriel was accustomed to danger. He spent his days dodging bullets. Those harrowing encounters barely register. But the passionate kiss he shared with Jenna stayed with him.
Now, the pair are reunited. But Gabriel cannot afford to obsess over Jenna when a ruthless enemy is stalking them.
To The Edge: Jillian Kincaid was receiving death threats. But the TV anchor had no intention of accepting Nolan’s protection. Bodyguards followed her wherever she went during her childhood because she was the daughter of a wealthy businessman. She hated it.
Jillian wanted her freedom. But her father did not give her a choice. He had tasked Nolan with watching Jillian’s every move. Nolan was determined to accomplish his mission, even though his tough, sexy, and independent target was fighting him at every turn.
