What if your life wasn’t your own?

Liv comes out of a coma with no memory of her past and two distinct, warring voices inside her head. Nothing, not even her reflection, seems familiar. As she stumbles through her junior year, the voices get louder, insisting she please the popular group while simultaneously despising them. But when Liv starts hanging around with Spencer, whose own mysterious past also has him on the fringe, life feels complete for the first time in, well, as long as she can remember.

Liv knows the details of the car accident that put her in the coma, but as the voices invade her dreams, and her dreams start feeling like memories, she and Spencer seek out answers. Yet the deeper they dig, the less things make sense. Can Liv rebuild the pieces of her broken past, when it means questioning not just who she is, but what she is?


~Interview~
1. Why did you decide to become a writer?
I've always had stories in my head, I just didn't think about writing them down until after I had my first baby. Once I started, I was hooked, and I knew that I wanted to try to make a career of it.


2. Who were your biggest influences?
I love Charlotte Bronte, Elizabeth George Speare, Mary Shelley, and LM Montgomery


3. Where do you like to write?
Usually I write at home, but when I'm on a tight deadline, I'll go to Panera (they have Mountain Dew & giant cookies) or the UCCS library, because it's dead silent.


4. Do you have a special routine you like to do before you write?
I check my email & twitter & get distracted, then finally force myself to focus. I do a couple hours in the morning, a couple hours after lunch, and then, if I'm really motivated, another hour after dinner.


5. When and how did you get the idea for ALL THE BROKEN PIECES?
I wanted to do something different and I was thinking of something that hadn't been done. I was also thinking about some classic storylines and I got this idea of (spoilery bit goes here) So I went about plotting how this girl would deal with waking up from a coma with no memory of what happened, all while having these two voices in her head that argued with each other.


6. Is there another book in the works? If so, what can we expect?
I've got a few adult romances coming out this year (Falling for Her Fiance just came out in January, and Cinderella Screwed Me Over comes out in Oct) I've got some YA books in the works as well, and as soon as I have contracts and more set dates, I'll definitely announce them.


THIS OR THAT
1. Jelly or peanut butter?  Or both?
Both. Or PB & choc, like a Reese's cup

2. Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
Milk chocolate

3. Cats or dogs?
Cats


4. Hardcover/ paperbacks or ebooks?
Ebooks

Bio:
Cindi Madsen sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
