Cynthia is a freelance writer, Indie eBook author, and novelist.

A writer in various genres including mystery, Gothic romance, and erotic romance, although much of her work contains elements of all three. Even her erotic romances usually wind up wandering down one dark path or another.

Much of her former life was spent working for the District Attorney's Office until she gave up one thrilling career for another and began writing full-time.

Cynthia is an INFJ that wants to change the world but doesn't want anyone to know she did it.

It's a rule they say but since I've never really been one to follow rules in general, I tend to use the cliché now and again, both in my writing and when I am speaking.
