As a Valentine’s present to you, here is an interview with author Christine Cunningham. Christine writes romantic, uplifting books, sure to lift your spirits and warm your heart for the Day of Love.
Describe your current release in two sentences.
My New Release Thirty-day Guide to Apply Eternal Beginning is a kick in the rear or a gentle guiding hand to improve your life by accepting control. It’s thirty days from here to a better you.
What was your childhood ambition?
My childhood ambition was to grow up and somehow transform into a unicorn. That didn’t happen. When I was a little older, I thought I wanted to be a veterinarian. Yeah, twelve years of public school sent me screaming from four walls and manipulative lessons. I now write for a living and love what I do. Maybe I am the rare unicorn I once wished to be.
Do you have a favorite time of the day? If so when and why
My favorite time of day is when I take my first sip of freshly brewed tea. My life can be in chaos, and everyone hates me, but as soon as I take that first sip, I’m transported to an English rose garden on a sunny afternoon, and I’m wearing a floppy white hat gossiping with the countess and planning our next tea time. And then I swallow. Nothing lasts forever eh?
Please describe your writing environment.
My writing environment consists of a huge three-hundred pound wooden desk, computer, and a metal lamp that warms my fingers. I have particularly poor circulation.
What is your favorite TV show?
I have three shows that I like to play in the background while writing (it’s human interaction minus the pesky human part), Scrubs, Frasier, and The Office.
What are you working on?
I’m working on a couple of projects right now. I’ll be releasing Five Fables mid-February. This is a book of; you guessed it, five short stories. I intend to release five short stories once a month and release a novel or novella every three to four months. This puts me at the end of March for the next in my Willow Reed series, Spring Argyle.
What career fields have you worked in?
I’ve worked fast food, craft shop, specialty fastener delivery, construction, and the pharmacy. I now am in the only career that I proudly own, author.
How do you mesh your personal and professional life?
Nothing could be easier! I have no personal life. I probably could, but why mess up a good thing? If I’m feeling especially frisky, I’ll pop on one of those free online dating services, but in the end, I find characters for my books rather than characters I want to add to my life.
If you had to choose one person to have dinner with, who would it be? And why?
The reader who writes me a $1,000,000 check for writing a book that changed their life, and they want my writing to continue uninhibited so others may enjoy life changes. There’s some unadulterated gratitude!
