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.

After nearly two years of research, writing, and waiting, I thought its launch would be the highlight. But, it fell into second place after an amazing, unexpected email from an ARC reader.
