 6 Questions to Cynthia

Q Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

I've to admit that I'm a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but I wonder how it would be if the Vampire Slayer was actually a 263 old vampire. And what if vampires just could walk during the day, without sparkles, and Holy objects can't kill vampires? And why shouldn't a vampire use modern weapons to fight evil? And if they fight evil, then why wouldn't they work together with an Anti-Terrorist Unit? These questions resulted in my first novel.

Q How do you get inspired to write?

I got my inspiration partly from the news and from what I see on the street. If I think that it's an interesting story, then I'll do my research and start writing about it.

Q What are you currently working on?

I'm currently working on my second novel, The black widow. This is a sequel to my first novel and starts on April 19, 2013 in Boston during the terrible terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon. I saw the news broadcast and made me puke. I don't understand why maniacs/terrorists do such horrible things to innocent bystanders.

Interview with Cynthia Fridsma

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?

The greatest joy of writing to me is putting my words on paper, gluing it together into a story and share it with the rest of the world.

What are you working on next?

I’m working on a sequel: Hotel of Death: the black widow, which takes place in Boston on April 19, 2013. The day that shook the world due to the terrorist attack on the marathon. The book starts when the bombings took place. When I heard about it, I felt the goosebumps, and felt sad about the victims and anger towards the two terrorists.

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?

Honestly? My husband, he's the greatest inspiration in my life, and I always let him read my writings.
