Special Guest Cynthia Boris & GIVEAWAY!!!

June 20, 2012

I am super excited to have author CYNTHIA BORIS here with me today! Be sure to leave a comment and be entered to win a copy of her gripping romantic suspense novel, SAVING HILL! Winner will be announced Monday, June 25, 2012.

LisaFox: So, tell us about you. Who is Cynthia Boris?

CynthiaBoris: I am a writer, a TV fanatic and an internet fiend. Formerly a Jersey girl, I moved to Southern California to be closer to the TV industry and got to fulfill my dream of working on a TV show and seeing my name in the credits of a movie!

My other dream was to publish a novel and have it reviewed in Romantic Times and I got that too when I published my first novel Waiting for Ethan. It’s been a long time coming but now I’m back with a new book.

LF: You are a romance author, but do you consider yourself a romantic?

CB: I am at heart but I try not to let it show! I’m not much of a candlelight dinner girl, but when a hero swoops in to save a damsel in distress, I’m there.

LF: I love a good murder mystery and Saving Hill sounds like a thrilling read. Can you tell us a little about the story?

CB: I’m kind of a conspiracy nut and years back I read about these secret government mind control experiments called MKULTRA. It really started me thinking about the people they experimented on and if it was really possible to control the actions of another. Combine that with my fascination with UFOs and abduction stories and you get Saving Hill. Of course, since Hill isn’t exactly sane, the real question is. . . is his reality really real or not?

LF: I have a major thing for FBI agents and Special Agent Mitch Jackson sounds like my kind of man. Who plays him in the movie?

CB: If it’s a TV movie, it’s Rob Morrow. I was highly influenced by his portrayal of FBI agent Don Epps in Numb3rs. If we make it to the big screen, then let’s see if Hugh Jackman is available.


LF: As we all know, the end of the world is coming this year and the zombie apocalypse is upon us. What five must-haves do you have in your zombie-proof bunker?


  1. My iPad with as many books, TV shows and movies as I can cram in there.
  2. A generator that will keep my iPad charged.
  3. Chocolate. . because. . .chocolate makes everything bearable.
  4. A huge supply of Diet Coke because that’s my life’s blood.
  5. My best friend, because what’s a zombie-apocalypse without someone to share it with.

LF: What is your favorite way to relax after a hard day of working and writing?

CB: TV, TV and more TV. I am devoted to television. I have been since I was a child and I swear I learned more from TV than I learned in school. When I’m not watching current TV, I’m working my way through the backlog of DVD box sets.

LF: Any new projects in the works?

CB: Since I write non-fiction for a living, switching my brain to the fiction side is often tricky. I do have one project I’m really passionate about that I keep going back to. The hero is an aging teen idol who makes a startling discovery about his best friend’s suicide which happened more than 20 years ago.

Since I am such a TV fan, it’s only a matter of time before that world ends up in one of my novels. I’m kind of surprised that it hasn’t happened yet.

LF: How can people find you online?

CB: I’m everywhere! The easiest way is to follow me on Twitter @cynthialil. That way you’ll hear all the news from the variety of blogs I run and write for.

I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts on Saving Hill, writing or their favorite TV show. For that, they can leave me a message at

Charlie Hill is the biggest puzzle at Lakeland Mental Hospital. He claims to have been abducted by aliens, but creative therapist Abby Westin thinks the story is Hill’s way of coping with something horrible that happened to him in his past.

When Abby tries to solve the puzzle, using Hill’s diary, she finds herself caught up in a conspiracy that includes murder. She runs to the one person she can trust, Hill’s best friend Mitch Jackson, but she soon discovers that Jacks knows more than he’s admitting about the incident that turned Charlie Hill into a broken man.
