About Cynthia

Cynthia was born in Los Angeles and raised in northern California and Arizona. Her early life in California, living across the street from a vineyard, working in her father's large vegetable garden and growing up around a menagerie of animals—dogs, cats, chickens, a horse, a cow, and a very surly goat—infused Cynthia with a love of country life and of watching things grow.

Cynthia has had stories popping into her head as long as she can remember. She imagined her first story when she was five and later, at the ripe old age of eight, wrote it down and still thinks the story is tellable. While in school and then while raising a family Cynthia continued to write.

My Way Home, the first in the St. Gabriel series, was not the first novel Cynthia wrote, but it was the first one to be published. My Way Home captured the hearts of readers who eagerly await additions to the St. Gabriel series.

In addition to novels, Cynthia has also written animation and live-action scripts, as well as children's stories. A grateful mother and grandmother, Cynthia enjoys spending time with her family and friends, gardening, cooking and traveling, especially to her very favorite Island.
