Cynthia Roemer is an Inspirational Historical Romance author from the rural Midwest. She and her husband, Marvin, have been married for thirty years and have two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and a spoiled cat named, Chad. They enjoy quiet living and God’s wondrous creation on their 300 acre farm.

Cynthia’s thirst for writing began her junior year of high school, when her short-story won first place in a local college writing contest. She went on to pursue a career in writing by earning a B.A. in English (with an emphasis on Creative Writing) from U of I of Springfield, IL in 1988. Since then, Cynthia has had over 100 articles and short-stories printed in various Christian teen and adult publications.

Her Prairie Sky Series consists of three Inspirational Historical Romance novels set in the mid-1800s, Book One: Under This Same Sky, Book Two: Under Prairie Skies, and Book Three, Under Moonlit Skies (Scrivenings Press).

Her Wounded Heart Series is set during the Civil War era and consists of Book One: Beyond These War-Torn Lands, Book Two: Beyond Wounded Hearts, and coming in October, 2024 Book Three: Beyond Shattered Dreams.
