Cynthia grew up in Colorado, lived in Arizona, and was born somewhere east of there. Then she married a Montanan and that was the end of that. She pursued several degrees and a couple careers, but found God's best job for her when she became a wife and mom. Now her kids are grown-up enough to write their own stories, and so is she. She writes inspirational romance and takes photos of her favorite places in Montana and Yellowstone Park.

Coincidentally, when I want to clean the house, writing is the perfect procrastination. When it gets serious, though, I make sure to accomplish three things: walk, sleep, and daydream. It's amazing how those simple things can fall by the wayside when life gets busy, and how difficult the creative process is without them.(less)

That's when I'm most aware that as an author I'm a participant, not the creator. In my landscape photography I try to capture my vision of God's creation. Writing is the same for me--God is the creator and author of the universe, and I get to play along.(less)

The tall pines made a tunnel lit only by the yellow light on our headlights below us, and the ribbon of dark blue sky above. Hubby was driving the kids and I back from watching the sunset at Grant when we passed over the bridge. To our left the forest parted, and at first it looked as if fairy lights were floating in a sea of midnight blue.

Just like that, Bridge Bay became one of my favorite pl... Read more of this blog post »

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

“If you love someone, you don't act like they annoy you. You like them, and you try and make them think they're the most important person in the world to you.”
Susan May Warren, Evergreen

A Blessing

Just off the highway to Rochester, Minnesota,
Twilight bounds softly forth on the grass.
And the eyes of those two Indian ponies
Darken with kindness.
They have come gladly out of the willows
To welcome my friend and me.
We step over the barbed wire into the pasture
Where they have been grazing all day, alone.
They ripple tensely, they can hardly contain their happiness
That we have come.
They bow shyly as wet swans. They love each other.
There is no loneliness like theirs.
At home once more,
They begin munching the young tufts of spring in the darkness.
I would like to hold the slenderer one in my arms,
For she has walked over to me
And nuzzled my left hand.
She is black and white,
Her mane falls wild on her forehead,
And the light breeze moves me to caress her long ear
That is delicate as the skin over a girl's wrist.
Suddenly I realize
That if I stepped out of my body I would break
Into blossom.”
James Wright, Above the River: The Complete Poems

“Finally brothers and sisters; whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

“I try very hard not to care about the opinions of people who don’t have my best interest at heart.”
Cynthia Bruner, Sky's Fireworks
