Cynthia Roemer is an Inspirational Historical Romance author from rural Illinois. She and her husband, Marvin, have been married for twenty-six years and have two college-aged sons. 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). To stay up-to-date on her WIP and to gain inside information about characters, sales, and giveaways, sign up for her Author Newsletter.

It is Cynthia’s ardent prayer that the Lord will plant seeds of hope into the lives of those who read her work. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, taking walks and motorcycle rides in the country, biking, gardening, and reading.
