Interview with Cynthia Woolf, Author of Heart of Stone

29 Jun 2021

What can you tell us about your new release, Heart of Stone?

I’m known for my almost sweet mail-order bride books. This one is a little more sensual and an angel is the mail-order bride. It was a little different for me because of that plus she died in 2020 and is being sent back to 1880. I loved writing this book and have a series planned.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

My mother. She was a librarian and encouraged me to read and think for me it was a natural progression to writing and I love what I do. I work harder at this than I ever did in the corporate world and that’s not saying that I didn’t work hard there, but now I don’t mind putting in 18 or 20 hour days because it’s for me, not a corporation and because I love writing.  I also read about Johanna Lindsey, my favorite all-time author, and how she started out and thought if she can do it so can I.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

This is hard. I love Heart of Thunder by Johanna Lindsey,( though I love anything by Johanna Lindsey), Guardian Angel by Julie Garwood (I like all the historical books by Julie Garwood), the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn, Interstellar Brides series by Grace Goodwin, and anything by J. D. Robb, (I just love Eve Dallas and Roark makes me swoon).

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

Nora Roberts. I’d ask her how hard is it to write such different genres of books as those she writes as Nora Roberts and those by J.D. Robb which are totally different.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?


What is a typical day like for you?

I’m usually up and have breakfast about 4 am, then I write until my husband gets up and I fix breakfast for him, then I write until lunch around noon. I do business and write or brainstorm until around 5 pm when we have dinner and watch TV. At about 7:30 pm, it’s back to the office.

What scene from Heart of Stone was your favorite to write?

Probably the first scene with Caitlyn and Archangel Gabriel.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

Tomorrow is another day.
