Cindy Tanner

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Cindy Tanner. As an only child that grew up on a farm in rural Indiana an overactive imagination developed out of necessity. I started making up stories before I could write. I love animals and have a tendency to collect the ones need a home. I love reading as much as I love writing and cannot stay in one genre for either!

When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.

When I’m writing I need music to set the mood for whatever scene I’m writing *wink* and snacks (Reese’s pieces or peanut butter M&M are my favorite)

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

BOOKS! Getting to buy new books, getting to talk to people that love books as much as I do, and best of all getting to talk to the author that created the awesome stories I love reading!

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Diana Gabaldon

When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?

When I can keep a consistent schedule I feel invincible however I let life (and my son) distract me more than I should. I do dedicate time everyday to write even if it is just a few hundred words on my phone.

Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?

Goofy’s Big Race. It was my Dad’s favorite book to read to me. He quoted it to me growing so many time especially when I would get frustrated when things weren’t happening as fast as I wanted. He passed away about a year and a half before I had my son. I still have the copy that my dad always read to me. Now I read it to my son. It means the world to me to be able to share something with my son that I enjoyed so much with my dad.
