Cyndy is an author who hates writing about herself,especially in the third person. She’s been a barista, a rectory sitter, a computer programmer, a secretary, a tech journalist, and now a freelance writer and editor. Once upon a time, she wrote Twilight fan fiction.

She likes chocolate, subtitled movies, sleep, and HP sauce, and dislikes people who don’t like to argue and remain friends afterward.

AS A REVIEWER: Yes, I was a pro book reviewer. I did not, however, review books by friends, books I've beta'd (unless it was a quick read-through), books by clients (just no), or any books that were fan fiction previously in any fandom. (That I am aware of. Some may have slipped by.)

This election is causing me a lot of anxiety, and I'm not alone in that. And the one thing that's making me the most anxious is that it's causing so many people to share their personal values, and I had no idea how many people around me in my life are sexist or racist or classist or homophobic. Those things were so nicely hidden in polite society other than the occasional comment, right?

Cyndy Aleo and 6 other people liked Laura's review of Firefly Summer:
Firefly Summer by Maeve Binchy
"This book was excruciatingly slow in the beginning, quite interesting and fun in the middle, and then quite abrupt and melodramatic at the end. It's as if she didn't know how to end the book so she just had a huge catastrophe happen and then bang,..." Read more of this review »

The Prince by Tiffany Reisz
Rate this book

It's no mistake that Tiffany Reisz's third book, The Prince shares its title with Machiavelli's political treatise. Working on the assumption that this is intentional on Ms. Reisz's part, it may explain the mixed reaction I'm seeing in reviews in t ...more

Michael's Wings by Tiffany Reisz
"Michael is one of my favorite characters in the Original Sinners books, and this collection of shorts centered on him and Griffin is sweet and fun. Nora and Søren and Kingsley show up (there's a wonderful conversation between Griff and Mick's mom,..." Read more of this review »

“The punishment of vertical rending was given to those who had destroyed marriages to satisfy their own lust.”
Cindy Pon, Fury of the Phoenix

Becky Albertalli
“He kisses like Elliott Smith sings.”
Becky Albertalli, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

“This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.”
Sid Ziff

Dorothy Parker
“In youth, it was a way I had,
To do my best to please.
And change, with every passing lad
To suit his theories.

But now I know the things I know
And do the things I do,
And if you do not like me so,
To hell, my love, with you.”
Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker

“All I ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being not just with my hands but with my heart.”

Oh, I'm so glad! Thank you for letting me know! That's the bonus of being able to use Amazon.co.uk for shipping, and why I was able to open the giveaway to other countries. :)

Hope you enjoy it!

I've been hearing some rumblings about Dear Author, but haven't gotten around to make my way there yet. I figured you were around somewhere, but I've lost touch with 99% of Twi-people from a couple years ago, so I had no way of knowing what happened with you.
