Growing up in the Philippines, Cindy (a quiet, introverted child) lived in dreams louder than the outside world. She was passionate about creating arts and crafts, as well as reading and writing stories. In school, She was a library-dweller, and mostly stayed to herself, except for times when she made extra cash by selling origami, and mini-comic books. She's always had a love for fantasy and mythical stories and has even imagined herself as being a babaylan (priestess), or witch at times.
Cindy is an artist, and a writer, who enjoys creating stories about the Filipino culture, as well as mental health awareness. Being neurodivergent herself, she yearns to share stories that highlight the power of their uniqueness. She enjoys volunteering her time in altruistic pursuits. And although she doesn't see herself as a great leader, she hopes to make a positive change in the world.
She currently resides in Las Vegas, NV. She has a B.S. in Business and Entrepreneurship Certificate from the University of Phoenix. She worked for many years in the financial industry. She also dabbles in real estate investing, and still, continues to learn about new ventures.
She is an SCBWI and Storyteller Academy member and continues to attend various workshops and critique groups to grow her skills. She believes that lessons are learned through experiences, and stories are the best way to share them.
Cindy is represented by Carey Blankenship Kramer at Belcastro Agency.
Cindy describes herself as an artist, dreamer, storyteller, mom, wife, yogini, nature-lover, chocoholic, and an avid learner, observer, and creator.
