About the Author

Cindy started writing her first book with one goal in mind: to finish it. The idea of selling it was a distant thought.

But after making her first sale, Cindy realized that one book would not be enough. Now, after publishing over 20 books and winning numerous awards, Cindy can hardly remember life before writing.

However, before becoming a successful author, Cindy was a professional career woman. She worked as a trainer for the Iowa Department of Human Services, a job that she finds both challenging and rewarding.

Cindy’s career has taught her a lot about the human condition, including its frailties, strengths, and spirit. She draws on these experiences to write books that celebrate life’s richness and trials, exploring a wide range of emotions.

Despite her busy schedule, Cindy finds time for her hobbies and interests. She is happily married to Tom, a cowboy who loves his horses almost as much as he loves his wife.

Cindy has a passion for pink depression glass and enjoys reading in her free time, especially at their summer cabin in northern Minnesota. Tom and Cindy also enjoy gardening and have recently expanded their annual beds into a perennial garden.

They have two dogs, Ellie and Boomer, and one son named Kyle, who has found the perfect woman in Eileen.
