Cindy Bauer

Clinton, United States


Home page:

Born and raised in Iowa, Cindy Bauer grew up the youngest of three children. An avid reader since early childhood, she often dreamed of becoming a writer. Cindy graduated from Assumption High School in 1975, married her husband Robert in 1976 and left her dream behind. When her mother became terminally ill, Cindy and her husband relocated to Missouri in 1986 to assist with her care. They decided to stay and make it their home.

Cindy's dream to write was rekindled when she began working for a daily newspaper. She published her first novel in 2006 and her second in 2007, both of which were edited by her sister, a former journalism teacher. In early 2008, Cindy severed ties with her publisher. She then rewrote and republished both those novels in 2008.

But editor "sis" is not the only family member involved with Cindy's writing career. Her brother designed the new cover for the republished second novel and also the one for the yet to be published third novel, Crystal Clear, which Cindy hopes to have ready for publishing by early spring.

No longer in the newspaper business, Cindy now freelances as a writer and editor, between writing and marketing her own work. She also helps with self publishing needs, including proofing, editing and formatting manuscripts, cover design, and many other services related to publishing and/or marketing.

Cindy is also reviewer for and New Leaf Press. She recently joined the staff as a volunteer at Visual Arts Junction and contributes articles related to writing, publishing and marketing as well as interviews and book reviews.

"I believe the Lord has chosen me to spread His word through my words and who am I to question His plans for me?" ~~ Cindy
