Cynthia’s vivid imagination as a child is what started her writing. Everything became a story for her. The neighborhood she lived in, the people she met and even the people who lived in her head. Living the suburban life in Westchester County did not hinder the stories she wrote and the worlds she created. She traveled a little as a child, so suburbia wasn’t all she knew. Los Angeles, Alabama and New York City helped to shape the writer in her.
