Interview with Author Cynthia Darling

Shunned: Outcasts in the Land

What is your book about?
My book is about three issues:

·         it's a muckraker dealing with the antidepressant industry;
·         It's a murder mystery;
·         Its theme is about the book title, Shunned, regarding how society chooses to separate itself from those who challenge it.

Why did you write it?
I wrote it to fulfill my need to tell stories and especially to describe the horrors of antidepressant addiction.

What are three reasons people should buy it?
It's a fast-paced read that can open the minds of readers to new concepts.

What challenges did you overcome to pen it?
There was considerable research I had to do on antidepressant usage, while keeping the story in a very readable, fictional format.

Any advice for struggling writers?
My only advice: learn to write fluently before you decide to write!

Where do you see book publishing is heading?
I hope that one day the "best-seller" list will be filled with self- published books, opening the monopoly of publishing companies.
