“When I was eight, my dream was to be a super cool detective like Nancy Drew, racing around town in a sky blue roadster. At sixteen, my goal was to be an awesome mystery writer like Agatha Christie. A few decades and diversions later, I was a newly divorced Mom and CEO, driving my kids to cheerleading and soccer practice. In a sky blue SUV.”
So opens the website of Cindy Sample, an invitee of the California Author’s at CalExpo. Only having met Cindy via email and from reading (and re-Tweeting to my following) her first chapter of Dying for a Dance, I have to say I love her style, wit and can't wait to download her novels to my summer reading list.
According to her bio at http://www.cindysamplebooks.com, Cindy has been an avid reader from the age of four, and after one too many corporate mergers, Cindy found herself plotting murder instead of plodding through paperwork. Her first novel, Dying for a Date, (released by L&L Dreamspell in June, 2010), was voted #1 in Romance in the 2010 P&E Readers Poll. The Sequel, Dying for a Dance was a finalist for the 2012 Lefty award for Best Humorous Mystery, and the recipient of the 2012 Best Fiction Award by the Northern California Publishers and Authors Association.
