Interview with Syndie Winters, Heroine of "Forever Love"

Let me introduce myself.  My name is Syndie Winters.  My story “Forever Love” is told in the Love, Again Anthology. Thank you for having me stop by.  I hope that everyone enjoys my story of finding love with my hunky firefighter, T.J.
 Are you upset your name is not in the title? Not really.  This book has more than my story in it, so I wouldn’t expect that my name would be in the title.  I’m just happy that my story came first.
Is your love interest the way you pictured him or her? Or would you have preferred someone with a different hair color. The cover featured a beautiful picture of me and my honey.  Doesn’t he look hot?  I love that short military haircut and muscular body.  Someone must have taken a photo when we weren’t looking.
Do you have any annoying habits your author did not share with us in your book? Unfortunately I chew my nails.  It is my way of handling stress.  Just imagine always having to be aware of what is going on with your father.  I feel like I have to sleep with one eye open, especially after the oven and clothes incident.
 Do you have siblings? Are you close to them? I have four sisters.  We are close but each of us have gone our own ways.  None of us wanted to live in small-town Amherst, Ohio.  But now that I’m back, I am trying to get them to move back home too.  My sister, Stacey just called me the other day for some big sister advice.  I love telling them what to do.
Are you planning to make an appearance in a sequel? If not are you unhappy about that? I’d love to make an appearance in the sequel.  Melissa Keir (the author) is working on two stories right now that tell about my sisters’ search for true love.  I’m sure they plan on me being in the story. 
Did you author handle your “love” scenes the way you like or was she too explicit or not explicit enough? Wow.  What a personal question. It isn’t nice to kiss and tell. I guess I was glad that Melissa didn’t point it all out for everyone else.  I’m glad that I am the only one who really knows what T.J. looks like down there. 
Are you happy with the setting? Did you want a bigger house or car? At first, I was disappointed to be back in Amherst.  While it was my hometown, it had some sad memories for me, T.J. dumping me, my mom’s death, the whole grunge look during high school.  You get the idea.  But once I really started being honest with myself, Amherst wasn’t a bad place.  I’m glad that T.J. and I will raise our children here.  Although I am worried about how to do this in my Dad’s house.  We are going to live with him since he has Alzheimer’s and a move would unsettle him.
 Who was your favorite supporting character? My favorite supporting character was my Dad.  He was my first hero and the guy that I measure all my boyfriends against.  He taught me how to have a strong work ethic and be optimistic in the face of tough situations.
Did your story end too soon? Well my story isn’t done yet.  Just the part in Forever Love.  Hopefully Melissa will get those stories written and published so that everyone can learn more about my family and attend my wedding.  But only if you all bring a gift!  We are registered at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

in love with other women.
