Fond of the times past, she writes both historical fiction and nonfiction, while combining history and scripture to minister to women of all ages. However, she has a special place in her heart for homeschool mothers.

Cynthia is a huge fan of tea, sugar, the color purple, orchids, her community of friends, and ballroom dancing with her husband. note: External links may be automatically included within third party websites; they do not constitute an endorsement or an approval by nor by the lesson designer of any products, services, or opinions of the corporation, organization, or individual.
