Thanks for visiting my blog. I’ll be writing about a variety of topics (just what they tell you NOT to do) that, if I’m successful, will give you a sense of who I am and what’s important to me. I’m puzzling out just what I think about life, about books, about spirituality, issues of the day, or rather, issues of my day. I hope that you can relate to my topics, that you will nod, or laugh, or cry in agreement, or shake your head or your fist, and declare that I don’t know what I’m talking about.
I’m interested in what you think about life and the choices that you have made to live “upwind of the stable.” Please leave a comment, tell me what you like, what you’d like to discuss.
My first historical novel, ANOTHER SUNDAY was published in 2015. ECHOES FROM THE ALUM CHINE is my second novel, and will be released in Spring 2017.
I invite you to visit my webpage, cynthiastrauff.com.
