Today we welcome Cynthia Ellen Cooper, the heroine from Darlene Franklin's newest release, Cinderella's Boots. She's here to tell us a little about herself and her adventure.
Yes, I’m that Cynthia, Cynthia Ellen Cooper, AKA Cinderella—the Cinderella who left her groom at the altar four years ago to work on her penpal’s sheep station in Australia.
Aside from that aberration, I’m normal with a capital N. My parents divorced when I was little, but I love my stepdad and my half-sister who complete my family with my mother. Believe it or not, I ended up working in the animal clinic that belongs to my ex-fiance’s father. Now that Keith has finished vet school, he’ll be working with his father. I’m a little worried about what that will be like.
What brings you to back to the West?
I never intended to stay away. I only wanted to spread my wings before I settled down.
What would be your dream occupation?
A variation on what I’m doing now. I work at the animal clinic as a vet assistant and dog groomer. I’d like to run a full-service dog facility, with a mobile pet-grooming service. You know, doggy day care, boarding services, dog training, vet tech services.
What is your greatest fear?
I don’t like getting backed into a corner. I worry if I squandered my best chance at love when I walked out on Keith.
If you could go back ten or fifteen years, what advice would you give yourself?
I suppose you expect me to say I would tell myself not to leave Keith at the altar. And I would—but I wouldn’t say to marry him. I’d tell myself to be up front and tell him I needed more time. Tell him about the opportunity in Australia, and ask him for another two years.
Where do you see yourself being ten years down the road?
Married—to Keith? Or someone else. With children and maybe even my pet-grooming truck.
Any parting remarks?
For anybody out there who feels like you can recover from the mistakes you’ve made—I believe in second chances. Every day is a new beginning with God.
Thanks so much for sharing with us today, Cynthia!
