Cindy Rankin—

Cindy Rankin began writing stories in fourth grade. After college, she wrote retail training manuals and newspaper features, yet fiction remained her passion. When her husband left active military service, they moved to California’s Central Coast. Cindy worked as a substitute teacher and freelance journalist while raising a son and daughter. She joined local writing-critique groups, and continued creating characters and dilemmas for them to face. Her debut novel, Under The Ashes, combines her love of history and storytelling. A member of Author’s Guild and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Cindy’s currently working on another novel.
