Cynthia Gail and her husband reside in the suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee, with their teenage son and three dogs. Life is busy and never dull, but when she has free time, she loves to read.
A math/science girl at heart and a retail analyst by trade, Ms. Gail never thought she would one day find herself writing romance. That all changed, however, when one day, a story popped into her head and she discovered that she just had to write it down. "The fantasy, escape, and wonder of just reading multiplied by ten-fold and I couldn’t stop my fingers from typing my own fairy tales."
Each of Ms. Gail's stories touch on issues, fears, and challenges that women face every day. Each one also illustrates that love is within reach if you let down those walls and allow your heart to open. Cynthia Gail feels that: "Our lives and experiences are so much more meaningful when we have someone to share them with."
Cynthia Gail’s latest book is the contemporary romance, Winter’s Magic (Book 1 in the Music City Hearts series).

Could you please tell us a bit about your book? The story? The characters?
Winter’s Magic is the first of four books in my Music City Hearts series. Spring’s Surprise, Summer’s Family Affair, and Fall’s Redeeming Grace will follow in 2013.
Beth Sergeant is probably my favorite heroine in the series. Her parents were middle-class, but found a way to send her to the most prestigious, private high school in Nashville, Tennessee. While the invaluable experience prepared her for college, she never felt as if she fit in.
After losing his parents to a car accident at a young age, Nick Chester was raised by his grandfather, the wealthiest man in Nashville. At the age of 30, he’s built his own business and experienced enough of life to realize everyone has an agenda.
Beth can’t resist Nick’s charm and accepts an invitation to dinner, despite her deep-seated insecurities. She proves she’s nothing like other women Nick's dated and learns to trust him in return. But just as the last of their resistance crumbles and true love is within reach, challenges from Nick's past threaten to destroy everything and force Beth to reveal her most guarded secret.
Winter’s Magic is a fun, fast read. I think my readers will relate to Nick and Beth and cheer them on as they overcome their trust and identity issues.
