Interview with Cyndi Tefft

Cyndi Tefft was among the first be Interviewed by the Madame (that's me) and as part of the Even In Darkness Blog Tour she's back for more with some hard-hitting questions from the Writer of Wrongs. Check it out:

Cyndi Tefft lives with her family in the Pacific Northwest where the weather is overcast and rainy, much like the Highlands of Scotland. So she was right at home when she got the chance to visit Eilean Donan Castle.

A self-proclaimed Scot freak, she loved every bit about the trip to Scotland: the people, the kilts, the accents, the fish & chips, the haggis...well okay, not the haggis.

Links to connect with me!

1. What is your dream cast for Even In Darkness?
Ooh, tough question. Truthfully, I think I'd prefer to have a bunch of young, gorgeous, unknown actors. That way, people would fall in love with them and associate them with the Between series, rather than already having preconceived notions. However, Aiden and Eagan would have to be equally hot. LOL

2. Favourite place in Seattle?
There's a local bookstore called Third Place Books where I can often be found. The bookstore has an attached food court and stage area where they often host big name authors, but they allow lesser-known authors (*cough*) to come do signings, too. It gives me a thrill that I've done a signing at the same bookstore as Diana Gabaldon and Cassandra Clare. How cool is that?

3. If you could be any fictional character, who would you be?
Aside from Lindsey (because she would, of course, be my top pick, but that's cheating), I would have to pick Claire Randall Fraser from Outlander. She doesn't have it easy, but Jamie makes it all worthwhile. He was my inspiration for Aiden's character and still holds a special place in my heart.

4. Three facts about your childhood.
I tried to sneak in a kitten I got for free from a local house when I was in grade school. When it meowed from inside my bedroom, my mom asked "What is that?" and I tried to pass it off like I didn't know what she was talking about. Luckily for me, we got to keep him (I named him Butterscotch).

I've always been extremely outgoing and liked talking to strangers as a kid. I remember telling the guy at Les Schwab who changed our tires that I would miss him when we left.

I used to have recurring nightmares about a villain with a handlebar mustache chasing me on a flying chicken leg. True story. I don't eat food with bones in it (probably as a result of these dreams).

5. Movie that always makes you cry.
Somewhere in Time. Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour were meant to be together. And go for long walks along the lake. In coattails and a parasol. *swoon*

6. Favourite smell?
Chocolate chip cookies baking. Also, my least favorite smell since I'm trying to lose weight!

7. Dear Teenage Cyndi:
Boys suck, especially that one who you think likes you but really doesn't. Drop him like a stone and move on. There is a fantastic guy waiting for you who will light up your world.

8. What language have you always wanted to learn?
I took five years of French in school (two in high school and three in college) and I loved it. That was a long time ago, but I still have a passion for languages. If I had a superpower, it would be that I'd be able to speak all languages fluently. Oh, and be able to pick out the 5-star books while scanning bookshelves. One more- invisibility. Wow, I want so many superpowers!

9. Two secrets about Lindsey that no one knows.
When she was little, she had a pet fish that died and she insisted on a proper funeral, so her dad buried it in the backyard and they had a service.

She knows all the words to Barry Manilow's Copacabana. And made up a dance to go with it.

10. If you could only paint your nails one colour for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pink, of course! I love pink, especially when it's shiny and perfect on my toes. Can't beat it for making me feel feminine.
