Cynthia’s thirst for writing began her junior year of high school, when her short-story won first place in a local college writing contest. She went on to pursue a career in writing by earning a B.A. in English (with an emphasis on Creative Writing) from U of I of Springfield, IL.
Since then, Cynthia has had over 100 articles and short-stories published in various Christian teen and adult publications. But her dream is to one day be a published author, writing Inspirational Historical novels with a touch of romance. She completed her first novel in 2014 and is currently in the midst of writing a sequel.
In June, 2014 her novel was chosen as a Finalist in the ACFW Genesis Contest. In October 2014, it was named Historical/Historical Romance Category Winner in the Writer’s of the West Phoenix Rattler Contest. And more recently, she was named a Semi-Finalist in the 2015 ACFW Genesis Contest.
Cynthia’s writing often centers on themes of hope and encouragement. As a farmer’s wife, she understands the importance of sowing seeds to reap a harvest. Her prayer is that those who read her work will be encouraged in their walk of faith and be drawn closer to the Creator.
