Award-winning author Cindy Kirk started composing after taking a course at a nearby community school. But her interest in the written sentence started years earlier if she was in her teens.
Cindy confides, “From the time that I was a small girl, I thought everybody made up different endings to books, films and television series. Instead of counting sheep to go to sleep soundly at night, I made up stories. Only later did I find not everyone does so.
I composed my first book once I was fourteen. This was what could now be regarded as a young adult romance book. It was all about a woman who had been attracted to an older boy (I think he was eighteen) who did not know she was alive. I made the mistake of letting a teacher read it. Although she stated it was great, I could tell by her expression she did not like it. I threw the pages away and, though I wrote in my diary at sixteen ‘I still really don't know what I would do if I can't be a writer,’ it'd be years until I’d try to write another novel. ”
Contrary to several writers, Cindy wasn’t enthusiastic about shorter works of fiction. After she began writing again, she jumped feet first into novel length fiction. She loves reading and writing romance because she believes in the ability of love and also in happily ever after. An incurable romantic, Cindy loves viewing her characters grow and learn from their mistakes and, in the process, reach a happy end.
With over forty published books under her belt, Cindy has composed everything from motivational love (romance with a religion component) to Harlequin's Love Inspired and Harper Collins Christian publishing, hot contemporaries for Harper Collins and books to Harlequin's Special Edition lineup which fall somewhere in between. She’s writing a series set in Door County to get Montlake Romance.
