Growing up in Cleveland, Ohio, Cynthia Mills always dreamed of the European worlds of yesteryear and spent much of her childhood reading books about times and places faraway. She studied in Germany while earning her Bachelor’s degree in Music and German from Lake Erie College, then went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Education from Cleveland State University. Marriage to an Englishman resulted in living in England for several years, where she began to pursue writing in earnest, selling articles to magazines such as Memory Lane. Upon returning to Cleveland, Cynthia wrote articles for the Cleveland Plain Dealer and the Sunday Magazine.
A keen interest in historical research, particularly the Edwardian and World War One eras, led her to discover the tragic story of two English brothers and their individual fates during World War One. Several trips to the battlefields of the Great War cemented the desire to write about this era, resulting in the story, Missing, Believed Killed.
Cynthia lives in Mentor, Ohio, making frequent trips to Europe, particularly England. She enjoys writing, playing the violin, listening to vintage music, and travelling. An unrepentant romantic, she believes that love never dies when true love once finds you. History and World War One are subjects in which she has a great interest. She is a member of the Western Front Association, which strives to preserve the memory of those who gave their lives in the Great War.
