Interview with Cindy Smith

Interview of Cindy Smith
Poet, Author of Voices in My Head

Questions by R. Marcus

Can you tell me a little about yourself?  

I am married and drive a truck with my husband of 20 years.  We live in his hometown in Indiana.  I love living in the country so I can interact with nature.   I love flowers, gardening (which I don’t really get to do anymore), and cooking.

Do you remember the first story you wrote?  

I have written poetry as long as I can remember. The first I can recall was a second verse to a song I learned in Girl Scouts.

Were you inspired by someone or something?  

My real inspiration has been Dr. Seuss.  I love how he could rhyme anything!

What do you like about writing a story?  

I like to paint pictures with words—make people see, feel, smell what I am experiencing.

Can you tell us about your book?   

My book is a collection of poems on different topics.  It tells my versions of life as I find it.  Some have been written by request, to help someone express their feelings.

What genre best fits for the book?  


Are you working on something new at the moment? 

I am working on another book of poetry.  I am in the editing stage now.

Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?  

Writers need to believe in themselves.  They need to remember you cannot please everyone.

Where can people go to read your work?  

Several of my poems are available to read on my

Do you have anything to add? 

Hugs, Love and Great Karma to all!
