Glynis Smy is a wonderful woman, friend, and now she’s also a published author! I interviewed her less than a year ago on my “Inside the Author’s Mind” series. She was popular then, and she’s only become more so. A genuine person who promotes others, I am only too happy to return the favor.
Please welcome back a sweetheart of a lady as she talks about her new novel ~ Ripper, My Love. Offer your congratulations to Glynis too!
Who is Glynis Smy?
Glynis was born and raised in England, in the coastal town of Dovercourt, near the port of Harwich (where the captain of the Mayflower lived). After qualifying as a nurse, she married her school friend, and they produced three children. During her rare quiet moments, she wrote poetry and articles for magazines. In 2005 she and her husband emigrated to Cyprus for a new life in the sun. It was here that Glynis lay down her cross stitch and started making writing friends on the Internet. With their support and encouragement she shared her poetry, and was successful in a few contests. She shared a short story with a friend, who wrote back telling her it was worthy of becoming a novel, and not to waste the premise upon a brief plot. The story is the one being launched today. Glynis found her love of writing 19th Century, historical romances and her second novel, Maggie’s Child, will be published at the end of 2012.
Aside from writing and cross stitch, Glynis enjoys creating greetings cards, and sells them to raise funds for a small hospice in Cyprus. One of her pleasures is to sit on the back porch with a glass of wine, and reflect upon her good life. She can often be heard chatting to new characters urging her forward.
Her desire to pay back those who had supported her is realised in a blog designed specifically to promote the books of others: New Book Blogger. You can find her personal writing blog here. Glynis finds the community spirit of writers on Facebook a valuable one.
