A New Friend

For those who don’t know me, I’m Cindy Flores Martinez, and I’m thrilled to be a new member of the Sweet Romance Reads group.

I’ll start by telling you a few things about myself.

*I live in a suburb of Los Angeles where I’ve lived all my life.
*Besides writing, I’m interested in graphic design.
*I have a cat that I rescued when his owners no longer wanted him.
*I enjoy making my own healthy chocolate.
*I like action films and crime investigation shows.
*My debut novel, Mail-Order Groom, started as a screenplay. I tried to produce it as a film, but after not finding the success I wanted, I decided to turn it into a novel. That’s where my journey with writing sweet romance began.

And so it continues.
To celebrate meeting new friends, here are a few sayings about friendship.

A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart. ~attributed to Heather Pryor
Strangers are just friends waiting to happen. ~unknown
There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship. ~Thomas Aquinas
A true friend is the best Possession. ~Ben Franklin (1706-1790)
Hold a true friend with both your hands. ~Nigerian Proverb


  1. Cindy, welcome to Sweet Romance Reads! We are honored to have you.

  2. Nice to meet you Cindy. Now I've got to do you make healthy chocolate?!

    1. It's nice to meet you too, Cashmere JL. Making healthy chocolate involves using coconut oil, maple syrup, and an unsweetened pure cocoa powder. It's delicious. I'll have to blog about it one day.

  3. Welcome, Cindy! Glad to have you!

  4. What a great introduction! Welcome, Cindy!

  5. Cindy, welcome. We're glad you joined us.
