Fantastic Fives on Cindy Lynn Speer

Five words and/or phrases that describe you:

fencer girl,




an optimistic pessimist

Five people and or things that inspire you:

The full moon,

Neil Gaiman,

my mum,

folk lore,

the rain

Five of your favorite authors:

Neil Gaiman
Barbara Hambly
Terry Pratchett
Rex Stout
Dashiell Hammett

Describe five of your heroes/heroines through your eyes:

Alex -- He's tall and slender, basically good natured with a tendency towards silliness, with silvery grey eyes.
Libby -- She has unnatural, neon blue eyes, the mark of the Merlin Stone she keeps. She has auburn hair, and a sweet face. She is frightened, but determined despite it, scarred by her past but willing to learn from it rather than hide from it.
Zorovin -- A dragon in human form, he can be fierce and hard, but his edges are softened by the humanity forced upon him.
William -- He used to be a man of the sea, and despite his stubborn, plunge forward nature, he's well meaning and sensible, even a tiny bit romantic. As Tasmin says, you can't accuse a man who opens a Chocolate shop of a lack of imagination.
Tasmin -- Tasmin is practical, genteel, a bit too straightforward. She is trained in herbs and some other magics, and can be fiercely loyal.

Five reasons to read your books:

1. To escape into a different world.
2. To see things beautiful and terrible.
3. To spend time with interesting people.
4. To solve the mysteries before the characters do.
5. Because I want to give people something to enjoy and make them happy.
