A podcast I quite enjoy.

I have come to look forward to Cindy’s author interviews and find I learn about new books I might otherwise not come across. Wonderful podcast!

Excellent Podcast!

Cindy’s talent shines through in her very interesting conversations with different authors. She has a unique ability to draw out the true meaning of each story, the history of how and why it was crafted, and why a reader would want to read it. A must-listen for fellow readers!

You’ll have so much fun learning about a book with it’s author

Cindy is at the top of her game in the bookstagramming community as she expertly interviews authors in the most thoughtful, engaging and warm manner. You will walk away with not only a sense of why the book she and the author are discussing is important but also learn the path the author followed to bring their creation to life to share with us readers... and you will undoubtedly have yet another wonderful read to add to your growing book pile! Cindy is fast making a name for herself in literary circles as one to follow and see what and who she is reading. You will never want for a book to read or an author to add to your list after relaxing to these podcasts.
