Cyndia was born in Iowa, and has lived in Pennsylvania, Illinois and Minnesota. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting, with a second major in Finance, from Northern Illinois University. After running her own business for ten years, she closed the doors and began writing full-time. She now lives in a suburb of the Twin Cities with her husband and their miniature schnauzer, Helpless. They keep an old, but much loved, boat at a marina on Lake Minnetonka, and use it as often as possible. She has just finished her second novel, Oblivious. Cyndia loves hearing from readers.
