UG MAG: Why did you choose the title In Rare Form? What does it say to readers? Cynthia: I chose the title In Rare Form because I wanted my story to be raw and uncut. I wanted to Tell my story In Rare Form because I wanted it to be bitter sweet. Although the story is raw it is not rare. There were over six million children molested last year. However it is rare that someone tells you what happened after the crime. I have watched crime channels and I always wonder what happened to the family the next day and the next, even ten years later. I wanted the readers to get an in depth look behind the door of abuse and addiction. I also wanted to show the true power of a mothers love for her children and how that love can one day save the family. In the end my readers will know that truly the family saves the family!! This story was written to allow my audience to see deep inside the walls of survival. We have all watched the story of the abused child on the crime channels. But few of us have seen what happened the next day and the next and the next. I wrote this story so that I could take you inside of survival. Sometimes it is not pretty. But in the end I know that you will believe in the human spirit and the will to survive that is buried in all of us. I want this story to save lives. I want the mother that reads this story to peek in on her baby’s one more time tonight. I want the addict that reads this story to find their way out of the darkness. And for those of you that have never had to wake up inside a tunnel to reach out to those who do. Remember, there is always a rainbow after the storm. You just have to look up. EVERY INTERVIEWER ASKS AT THE END OF AN INTERVIEW WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY TO OUR READERS BUT I AM GOING TO LEAVE THIS INTERVIEW OPEN. EVERYONE IS NOT CURED THROUGH READING A BOOK. CYNTHIA IN NO WAY IS SAYING THAT NOR DO I WANT READERS TO BELIEVE THAT BOOKS CURE ADDICTION BUT A TESTIMONY OPENS THE DOOR TO FAITH AND THROUGH FAITH GOD MAKES THINGS POSSIBLE. READING CAN ENLIGHTEN. IT CAN BE THAT WRAP AT THE DOOR OF YOUR CONSCIENCE. WHEN A TESTIMONY IS WRITTEN IT IS THE AUTHORS WAY OF SAYING YOU ARE NOT IN THIS ALONE. IF i CAN THEN THERE ARE INIFINITE POSSIBILITIES. SO READERS IF YOU WANT TO TAP AT A FRIEND OR FAMILIES DOOR OR THE GATEWAY TO THEIR ADDICTION SET THEM ON THE PATH TO KNOWING AND UNDERSTANDING; PASS THEM IN RARE FORM AND WATCH FAITH WORK!
THIS STORY CAPTURES THE TRUE SPIRIT OF SURVIVAL IN RARE FORM. THIS IS THE STORY OF TWO CHILDREN WHO SURVIVED A HORRIFIC CRIME IN 1986. THIS IS ALSO THE STORY OF THE MOTHER WHO GAVE THE CHILDREN THE STRENGTH TO SURVIVE. THIS STORY IS VERY TASTEFULLY WRITTEN. THE FAMILY IN THIS STORY WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THE CHILDREN IN THIS STORY WILL MAKE YOU CRY. AND THE MOTHER IN THIS STORY WILL MAKE YOU STAND UP AND SHOUT TILL THE FINISH LINE. WHEN YOU FINISH READING" IN RARE FORM" YOU WILL BELIEVE IN MIRACLES ALL OVER AGAIN!
