Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?
I left a job in 1999 with the intention of writing a book and becoming an author. I did finish the book, but quite a lot of life things had to occur before I was anywhere near getting a book out into the world.
What is something unique/quirky about you?
I always have cat hair on me.

Tell us something really interesting that's happened to you!
For my 50th birthday I did a tandem skydive. It was the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done, and no way I would have jumped out, had I not been strapped to a muscular chap about a foot taller than me. However, it had been on my bucket list for a while (20 years) and while I wouldn’t do it again, it was certainly something I am glad I did.

What are some of your pet peeves?
I used to get annoyed about toast crumbs in the butter, but realized there are probably more important things to worry about. Life is getting too short to worry about little things.

Where were you born/grew up at?
In Sydney, Australia

Who is your hero and why?
Jane Goodall is someone I admire. She has spent her life working and travelling to promote and fundraise for animals. Gerald Durrell as well, for his great books, and zoo which helped preserve endangered species.

But there are heroes all around us. People in service industries smiling and helping a customer even though their feet hurt, firefighters and soldiers, police and nurses. All devoting their lives to helping others, and not getting as much credit as they deserve. People that build new companies based on cleaning up ocean waste, or scientists, inventing vaccines that save lives. All heroes, and all deserve that recognition.

What kind of world ruler would you be?
I don’t know, power might go to my head. But my platform would involve animal care, cleaning up the oceans and environment. Building more libraries.

What are you passionate about these days?
Plastics in the ocean is something that has concerned my family of late. We have been researching ways to reduce our plastic use, including using steel straws, our own bags, supporting companies that clean up waste etc.

What do you do to unwind and relax?
I have been making graphics for author friends of late. I find it a fun activity especially if the tv is dull. Unless there is Star Trek on – then that has my full attention!

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Writer – that wasn’t the important step for me. Anyone can write, but not all can finish something that other people want to read. Winning a prize for a short twisted fairy tale was awesome. It was based on Rapunzel – but what if the prince never arrived?
Author for me was the big goal – to be published. Thankfully after many sacrifices to arcane gods at midnight, Soul Mate Publishing accepted Druid’s Portal: The First Journey.

Do you have a favorite movie?
Pretty keen on the Die Hard, Indiana Jones, and  The Mummy series. But I also love old ones, David Niven in Separate Tables, or Witness for the Prosecution, which is based on an Agatha Christie story.

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
My Druids Portal series is all action, adventure and romance, and many readers have commented they would love to see them made into a movie. I have had lots of conversations about the interview process for the leading man!

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?
On a family RV trip across the southern states of the USA, I forced a detour to Cross Plains, Texas. This is the small town that has the Robert E. Howard (creator of Conan) museum. I spent the afternoon rambling through his house, taking photos, and actually sat down at his desk. It was an incredible experience. His stories of action, strange eldritch places, evil sorcerers, bold heroes and strong women have been a great source of inspiration in my writing.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
Since I often have cats draped on or around me, I suspect I have already been chosen as some sort of cat slave. There are worse things, no doubt.


Druid's Portal: The First Journey
by Cindy Tomamichel
Genre: Time Travel Romance, Historical Fantasy


A portal closed for 2,000 years.


An ancient religion twisted by modern greed.

A love that crosses the centuries.

An ancient druid pendant shows archaeologist Janet visions of Roman soldier Trajan. The visions are of danger, death, and love—but are they a promise or a curse?

Her fiancé Daman abandons her before the wedding, her beloved museum is ransacked, and a robed man vanishes before her eyes. Haunted by visions of a time she knows long gone, Janet teeters on the edge of a breakdown.

In the shadow of Hadrian’s Wall and 2,000 years back in time, Janet’s past and present collide. Daman has vowed to drive the invaders from the shores of Britain and march his barbarian hordes to Rome. Trajan swears vengeance against the man who threatens both his loves—Janet and the Empire.

Time is running out—for everyone.





Druid's Portal : The Second Journey


A love that can never be.


Ethan—latest guardian of the Arwen pendant—finds his heritage of time travel a burden he can scarcely endure. Rowena—last of the line of Daman—is a soldier in the Celtic army, forced to perform deeds that haunt her. Both tormented by visions of the other, separated by barriers of time.

A time that should not exist.

Rowena flees the catastrophic end of her time but is trapped by an ancient family pact with an evil goddess. Desperate to save her, Ethan crosses over into her timeline, where his parents never met, and Daman—their greatest enemy—rules.
The past is ruled by a man who knows the future.

Thirty days to stop a goddess taking over her body. Thirty days to save his timeline. Together they will fight their way through an altered history to the dark past of Stonehenge.

But time is running out—for everyone.
