Former Corydon, Indiana author, Mary Cunningham, now makes her home in the mountains of West Georgia with her husband.

The idea for the series, Cynthia's Attic, was inspired by a recurring dream. After realizing that the dream took place in the attic of her childhood friend, Cynthia, the dreams stopped and the writing began.
