Cynthia writes Heartfelt, Homespun Fiction from the beautiful Ozark Mountains.
A hopeless romantic at heart, she enjoys penning stories about ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances. Her début novel, the first in a three-book series, releases with Mountain Brook Ink July 2019.
Cynthia has a degree in psychology and a background in social work. She is a member of ACFW and RWA. She is a 2017 ACFW Genesis Finalist, a 2016 ACFW Genesis (Double) Finalist, and a 2015 ACFW First Impressions Winner. Her short story Words from the Heart appears in The Story Anthology (Karen Kingsbury/Family Fiction) via Salem Publications, 2014. Her work is represented by WordServe Literary.
In addition to writing, Cynthia loves spending time with her family and friends. She has a fondness for gingerbread men, miniature teapots, and all things apple. She adores a great cup of coffee and she never met a sticky note she didn’t like.
Why I Write Faith-Inspired Fiction
I’m often asked why I write inspirational fiction. Because I’m a Christian, I know that “with Christ all things are possible.” Circumstances are merely miracles in the making, and true love really does exist!
God can take real people with real needs and real hurts and meet us right where we are. And in matters of the heart, our Heavenly Father longs to do just that.
We weren’t created to live a life of mediocrity. Through Jesus Christ, God’s son, we have the incredible opportunity to do more, have more, and be more than we ever dreamed possible.
Money, fame, and fortune are temporary. Their benefits are fleeting.
God’s word assures us, however, of this uncompromisable truth: “…And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV)
I pray that in your quest for love that you will first seek a relationship with Him (Romans 10:9), and second, you’ll share this gift with others. (Matthew 28:19)
