I learn fast and I’m very good at solving problems, and those are important gifts in the world of giant international corporations. But even as I climbed the corporate ladder, there was a persistent dream that kept me from really feeling at home. I wanted to be a writer. I had always wanted to be a writer. But how would I ever find the time to make the dream come true?

Eventually, the answer came to me: just quit. Walk away from the corporate world and write. Of course, that’s easier said than done, but at least I had a goal—to save enough money to get out.

At about the same time I began

A very interesting fact about koalas just popped up in a video from SciShow — a series that offers scientific explanations for various phenomena. Someone had asked why koalas hugged trees, and researchers have now found out why. Fun stuff.

Cynthia Greetings, Friends.

My newest book -- Midwest Maize: How Corn Shaped the U.S. Heartland -- is now available for pre-order on Amazon. So far, it's getting great reviews. I think it's a lot more fun than the title might suggest. It's not only the history of corn but also the history of the settling of the Heartland, plus the history of cooking over the last 150 years, plus enough fun factoids to make for a lot of great party conversation. (Do you know the connection between corn and vampires? How about corn and the Chicago Bears?) So I hope you'll order the book -- and enjoy it. Thanks.


Cynthia Just as an fyi, Waltzing Australia can now be found in just about every imaginable e-format at Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...

However, on Amazon, it's still available in print, as well as in Kindle format.


Cynthia Waltzing Australia is now available in Kindle format. From now until March 8, if you own a Kindle AND are an Amazon Prime member, you can check it out of the Kindle Owner's Library for free. Otherwise, both print and Kindle versions are available for sale on Amazon.


Glenda Bixler Looks like you're ready to tell everybody here at GoodReads about Australia! Good for You! Hope you share some pics too, if they have a way!
