Cindy started writing at the end of 23 years homeschooling four daughters. Self-motivated and a risk-taker (she snow skied for the first time on her fortieth birthday and took up mountain biking a few years later) Cindy sees life and people differently than most, and has a 'gift' for challenging assumptions. These qualities combine to form her greatest strengths and weaknesses.
Cindy is a Court Appointed Special Advocate for her county where she researches every aspect of her assigned foster child's life and presents her recommendations to the judge. On Christmas Day 2010 Cindy and her husband Dave became proud grandparents for the sixth time.
