Unlovable Review

Unlovable by Cynthia St Aubin
The Paranormal Case Files of Dr. Matilda Schmidt Book 1
Published February 11, 2014 by C. Olsen
5 Love Arrows

"Not many Novellas can pull off a full length story in so few words. This one does."

Synopsis - 

It isn’t every day a sexy demigod throws a pissed-off Cupid onto psychologist Matilda Schmidt’s couch and informs her the fate of the world depends on her ability to get him off his diapered ass and back to helping people fall in love. 

Just when Matilda convinces herself she’s not hallucinating, in walks a Vegas hit man with a big gun and a bigger threat: pay back the million dollars she owes a notorious casino mogul, or wind up as fish food in Lake Mead. 

Rocketing across country with a gun to her head, Matilda has a dysfunctional love-god in her laptop bag, a million dollar debt she has no knowledge of, and must convince the seductive hit man he’s snatched the wrong woman before he convinces her he might be the right man—for a night. 

Can Matilda stay alive long enough to keep love from becoming history? (Goodreads)

Review -

The first in a series of Novella's  revolving around the life of a psychologist whose clients aren't only less than normal, they're Paranormal. Though things didn't exactly start out that way. It wasn't until a Demigod came traipsing into her life toting an arrow slinging baby that Matilda's world got turned upside down, and made her wonder if she needed to see a psychologist herself.

This review will indeed be a short one, as I do not want to give anything away. But rest assured it is truly a good read. Full of humor, suspense, lust and a little bit of magic to seal the deal. Readers looking for blood, gore and guts, that will not be found here. Readers looking for some fun, unclean, magical humor to help cheer your mood, if only for a short while, this is a great short read that will definitely do just that. 

A psychologist who learned that learned to speak straight from a dictionary and desperately needs to get laid, and will counsel anyone within hearing distance. A love god who is sick of love. A hitman that may have even more brains than brawn. And a supporting cast that sweetens the deal. Unlovable is an unavoidable read just in time for V-Day.

A Little Unexpected Magic For The Holidays








 When who's your daddy is a multiple choice question...

Paranormal Psychologist Matilda Schmidt is one client away from fa-la-la-la-losing it. Holiday cheer is in the air, gun-toting fruitcakes are in her office, and she's spinning through mood swings fast enough to make her toss her cookies--even without the morning sickness.

When Ol' Kris Kringle goes AWOL after a nervous breakdown, his disgruntled elf is convinced that only Matilda can get him back on his sleigh in time to keep humans from tearing each other apart quicker than couponeers at a Black Friday sale.

But their efforts hit the skids when the men in Matilda's life show up and demand to know which of them is responsible for the bun in her oven: the hot hit man who's likely to stuff her stocking with ammunition, or the delicious demigod who's made Santa's naughty list a couple centuries running.







I like gravy.
This has nothing to do with the rest of my bio, but I thought you ought to know.
About the writing thing...
I wrote my first play when I was six and made my brothers perform it for my parents. I charged gum wrappers for admission (a steal, in my opinion, considering I had handed out the gum wrappers ahead of time). While I seriously doubt you'll be seeing any of my formative work on Broadway anytime soon, I can credit these early experiments with the first of many important lessons I learned about writing: no matter how brilliant your manuscript is, some kid can go streaking butt-ass nekkid across the living room, and totally undermine your vision.

Everyone watches the naked kid because running across the living room with your cheeks flapping in the breeze is friggin' hilarious.
Cue the lightbulb moment. People like funny stuff!
I never quite gave up on the writing thing, even as I tried my hand at being a dusty academic turned Executive Assistant (they paid me to nag! How cool is that?), but in those quiet moments when expense reports had been filed and to-do items checked off, the funny people in my head kept talking to me.
Yes, I know they have medication for that. It's called vodka.
Since they discourage drinking at work, I started writing instead. What came out was an amalgamation (vocabulary!) of all the things I love: funny stuff, art, psychology, food, people, and paranormal critters!
Et voila! The Case Files of Dr. Matilda Schmidt, Paranormal Psychologist were born.

When I'm not sitting in my office watching cat videos and pretending to write, I like cooking, knitting (badly), and reading anything that makes me laugh (like my bank statements).
I live in Colorado with my brilliant husband and three surly cats.

Halloween Trick or Tease!

A Wicked Read Just in Time For Halloween


Undeadly by Cynthia St Aubin
The Case Files of Dr. Matilda Schmidt Paranormal Psychologist Book 6
Published October 21, 2014 by C. Olsen

Synopsis -

When life sucks, and so does your next client...

Halloween is just around the corner, and life is bringing Paranormal Psychologist Matilda Schmidt all tricks and no treats. Ghosts haunt her in the organic produce aisle, she's been roped into attending a costume party she'd sell her soul to avoid, and the delicious demigod who once warmed her couch is taking his clients and his attentions elsewhere. 

But when even her lethal hit man lover fails to recognize the threat lurking in the shadows, Matilda finds herself confronted with one hell of a problem—surrender what's left of the life she knew, or face losing herself to the madness that took her mother. (Goodreads)


About the Author:

Cynthia St. Aubin wrote her first play at age eight and made her brothers perform it for the admission price of gum wrappers. A steal, considering she provided the wrappers in advance. Though her early work debuted to mixed reviews, she never quite gave up on the writing thing, even while earning a mostly useless master's degree in art history and taking her turn as a cube monkey in the corporate warren. 

Because the voices in her head kept talking to her, and they discourage drinking at work, she started writing instead. When she's not standing in front of the fridge eating cheese, she's hard at work figuring out which mythological, art historical, or paranormal friends to play with next. She lives in Colorado with the love of her life and three surly cats.
