Cindy L. Freeman is retired from a forty-five-year career in music education and performance. Although writing fiction has been a lifelong passion, she didn't become an author until after the age of sixty. A native of central New York, she lives in James City County, Virginia, with her husband, Carl. They have two children and five grandchildren.
"I started writing poems, stories and plays as early as elementary school," Cindy says. "I was greatly inspired and encouraged by my 7th grade English teacher.”
"I relish creating fictional characters and then getting inside their heads to make them convincing. Whenever I invent a character, the name comes to me instantly. It's like this total figment of my imagination suddenly becomes a real person with a distinct personality and an entire back-story."
In 2009, Cindy published her first novel, Diary in the Attic.
In 2012, she won a contest in the local on-line newspaper, WYDaily, for her essay, "A Christmas Memory."
In 2015, she published her second novel, Unrevealed.
In 2016, she had a short story, "Mama and the Wedding Cake" published in the Virginia Writer's Guild Journal.
In 2017, she published The Dark Room.
