Name:  Cory Cyr (yes, that is my real name)

Age:  over 21/under 100

Where are you from: Southern California(Left Lancaster, PA age 5)

A little about your self `ie your education Family life etc  : 

I have a degree in health and nutrition. I am a vegan and animal activist. I have been divorced forever. No children. Two cats.  A long with being an author. I have been a fashion designer and a lead vocalist in quite a few bands. My love of writing began with penning music.

 

 

Fiona: Tell us your latest news?

Rug Burns(Reviving Haven 2) will be out in 15 days. I LOVE this book. Weezie was my favorite character to write

 

 
Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?

I was severely speech impaired growing up except when I sang. Writing music was an outlet for me. When I was in high school, a creative writing teacher took me “under her wing” and allowed my writing to flourish.

 

 

 

Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?

I’ll go with my FIRST published book. Most think it was Bite & Release but in reality Reviving Haven was written first but I chose to release it as my 2nd book. My mother was critically ill and I needed a creative outlet for my grief. Reviving Haven gave me that. My mom passed 7 days after I finished it.

 

 
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style?

I have my “process” I tend to come up with the best dialogue etc in the middle of the night. I have digital recorders everywhere in my home. I appear to get inspired at the most inopportune moments.

 

 
Fiona: How did you come up with the title? 

To which book?  Rug Burns was originally called: Confessions of a cockaholic but we thought there might be pages/groups that wouldn’t post the book due to the title. My best male friend Ben and I actually came up with Rug Burns.

 

 
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

I just want my readers to be entertained. I have no political agenda here. I pen romantic fiction that has an HEA.

 

 
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic?

Quite a bit. Of course the real names have been removed to protect the innocent(LOL)

 

 
Fiona: Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

BOTH. Having dated younger men all of my life, I have taken bits & pieces and tweaked them. I tend to name characters after close friends. Who doesn’t want to be immortalized in a erotic romance book?(LOL)

 

 
Fiona: What books have most influenced your life most? a mentor?

I have many favorites but Jodi Ellen Malpas and Pepper Winters truly inspire me.

 

 
Fiona: What book are you reading now?

Wicked Fall by Sawyer Bennett

 

 
Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

I am very excited to read Tracey Chapman and Alison Mello when they release their books.

 

 
Fiona: What are your current projects?

I am currently working on a SECRET PROJECT. Release: April 2016.

 

 
Fiona: Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.

Facebook-My fan Page

 

 
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?

I write fulltime so yes.

 

 
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?

Rug Burns?-oh hell no!!!

 

 

 

Fiona: Can you share a little of your current work with us?

Not a chance. Laura Lee would hunt me down. She has tried six ways to Sunday to get information out of me. It’s called a secret for a reason. (LOL)

 

 
Fiona: Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

WRITING is easy. It’s the cover, editing, formatting, advertising etc that is the hard part. All these things are allocated to others.

 

 
Fiona: Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

I don’t have just one. I am a dialogue/character driven reader. Anyone who creates a character that I connect with and dialogue that inspires me I love. There are so many amazing authors who have written stories that stay with me forever. I want something that affects me.

 

 
Fiona: Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?

No

 

 
Fiona: Who designed the covers?

I always purchase the photographs. (My SECRET PROJECT took viewing 613 males and weeks of negotiations+ many phone calls)       My ideas and Robin Harper of WICKED BY DESIGNS–we collaborate and create a masterpiece. Of course, that “masterpiece” can take 20+ mocks until I am satisfied.

 

 
Fiona: What was the hardest part of writing your book?

The revisions, verbal beta reads and massive rounds of editing.

 

 
Fiona: Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?

LMAO!!! I’m certain I know everything there is to know about blow****

 

 

Fiona: Do you remember the first book you read?

Valley of the Dolls

 

 

Fiona: What makes you laugh/cry?

I crack myself up. And if a man cries. I am done!

 

 

Fiona: Is there one person pass or present you would meet and why?

Jodi Ellen Malpas

 

 

Fiona: What do you want written on your head stone and why ?

I am being cremated but if I had a headstone: “I may be dead but at least I’m still pretty”—– I am a huge BTVS fan.

 

 

Fiona: Other than writing do you have any hobbies ?

Foreign horror films, vintage weapons, collecting dragons. I love museums & art shows

 

 

Fiona: What TV shows/films do you enjoy watching?

New ones: BLINDSPOT & THE PLAYER and EMPIRE (love that show)

 

 

Fiona: Favorite foods / Colors/ Music

VEGAN food, color: Gray/Josh Groban, Judas Priest

 

 

Fiona: If you were not a writer what else would you like to have done?

Probably a forensic blood splatter analyst

 

 

 

Fiona: Do you have a blog/website? If so what is it?
