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.
I’ve published two historical novels; ANOTHER SUNDAY, 2015, and ECHOES FROM THE ALUM CHINE,2017. My poetry chapbook, PORTRAITS, is also available.
I invite you to visit my webpage, cynthiastrauff.com where there are purchase links, as well as excerpts from all three works.
Cynthia is the recipient of numerous prizes and awards for her poetry and prose. A native of Baltimore, she holds graduate degrees from The Johns Hopkins University and the University of Chicago.
In addition to her novels, her work has been published in three anthologies, You Must Remember This, Fire and Chocolate, and Reflections of the Soul, and in O. Henry Magazine, PineStraw Magazine and Salt Magazine. Two of her works were included in the North Carolina Touring Theatre’s production, Deployed.
She lives in North Carolina with her husband, Dick Schaub, and her cats.
