I am now working on chapter 8 of my new novel, 'Vanished'. 

As usual, I'm working on a chapter-to-chapter basis with my editor, Lee Ann. She had sent the first seven chapters two days ago :-)

Boston’s Frozen Floods Are Thanks to the Supermoon

Boston’s Frozen Floods Are Thanks to the Supermoon


The bomb cyclone that’s swamped the Eastern Seaboard with a trifecta of snow, hurricane-level winds, and cold had an extra-nasty surprise for Boston on Thursday, as the city and its surrounding coastal areas were hit with unprecedented flooding, with meteorologists predicting it would smash a nearly 40-year record.

On March 26, 2017 I published my third novel, Help. 


Dr. Josef Mengele—the Angel of Death—has escaped from Hell! Posing as a physician, he programs his patients to do as he commands, transforming them into living bombs, and ultimately creates a new world order. Sybil Crewes is a vampire trying to escape her fate. She refuses to feed on humans, pulls her own fangs, and injects liquid silver in an effort to remain “human.” When she discovers Mengele’s terrible plan, however, she knows she must stop him at any cost. Embracing her savage nature, she embarks on a dangerous course of action that will bring her face-to-face with the deadly doctor . . . and the monster within.

On November 8, 2016 I decided to publish a novelette--with a collection of short stories I wrote in the 1990s and sent it over to my editor, Virginia, whom I would like to thank for her hard work.

I’d like to thank my husband for his endless support. And I’d like to thank all my readers as well because you are my inspiration to keep writing.

My second book, titled The Black Widow, is ready!


Well, I already finished it earlier this month, but now you can nominate my book on Kindle Scout. If my book gets published, then everyone who nominated my book will receive a free copy of my novel.

And this  time, I worked together, on a chapter-to-chapter basis with an American Editor!

After approving the paperback version of Hotel of Death: the chosen one on Lulu.com and Amazon.com, I can now concentrate on the sequel, Hotel of Death: the black widow. 

Perhaps I'll publish the first part as an e-book so you don't have to wait too long for Sybil's adventures with her friends. 

To be continued.

Cynthia's progress, June 30, 2014.

My first novel is in the hands of my Dutch editor. I'm working on my second novel with the title:The Black Widow. It's a bigger challenge since I write this in Dutch and English. My goal is to write one chapter each week in Dutch and English. But due to CTS - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - I have to take it easy. After 4 hours my right hand starts to hurt like hell and then I need to stop ASAP

I'm finally working on the last chapter of my translation of my first novel, Hotel of Death - the chosen one.

I've now translated 81,865 words. Approx. 20,000 words to go.

One of the good things about my disease is that I can work on my Novel whenever I want.

The only thing that holding me back is the pain and the trembles in my right hand. Also the feeling in my fingers in my right hand is fading away slightly day-by-day.

I'll keep you posted...
