    Interview with Cyn Mackley, Author of Camelot West Virginia

    What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Camelot West Virginia?

    It’s jointly inspired by growing up in Appalachia and by the work I’ve done as a crime reporter in that region of Ohio. It is also inspired by my love of Arthurian legend and Appalachian folklore. I did an interview about it recently for a Southern Ohio publication.

    If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Camelot West Virginia, what would they be?

    Holding Out For a Hero, definitely.

    What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

    Mystery and Thrillers, which are indeed my favorite genre to write.

    What books are on your TBR pile right now?

    I’m eagerly anticipating the new Faye Kellerman and I have the last #1 Ladies Detective Agency waiting patiently on my Kindle.

    What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

    Definitely the action at funeral home run when the former beauty queen victim’s funeral goes off the rails in a particularly hillbilly fashion.

    Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

    My Editor Cat K9 likes to sit on my shoulder to supervise the process, and I’m told my eyes dart around all over the place as if I’m actually seeing the things I write about.

    Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

    Show up hard with a casserole.

    If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

    My characters. I hope they feel like real people they know.
