An advocate of literacy, Cynthia is a writing tutor at the U.S. Naval Academy's Writing Center where she wages war on bad grammar, one midshipman at a time.

FAR ABOVE RUBIES (2007 Martin & Lawrence Press)is the award-winning tale (based on a true story) of a Dutch woman who voluntarily accompanies her 6 stepdaughters to Auschwitz.

REMOTE CONTROL (2008 Echelon Press) won the 2006 Writers Marketing Association's Indie Excellence Award for New Age Fiction. This paranormal, women's fiction pioneers the genre of "lit for the thinking chick" with the story of thirty-something Judith McBride, a Jewish control freak with an unlikely last name. When she dies in a medical mishap, she calls upon her supernatural status to "rescue" her widowed husband from the sexy clutches of their gold-digging, thrill-seeking blonde accountant.
