About Cindy Procter-King

As a child, Cindy dreamed of becoming a writer. Well, okay, thanks to her grade three teacher reading a chapter of The Little House on the Prairie books to Cindy’s class every day, Cindy actually dreamed of becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder. It made so much sense. After all, Cindy’s blond older sister always got to wear blue while Cindy with the “dark as cinders” hair was often relegated to wearing dull old pink-—just like Laura. Laura was part of a pioneer family, and until Cindy went to school she lived in a miniscule farming community where her father and grandparents were born. What further confirmation for her future does an eight-year-old with an avid imagination require?

Cindy earned a degree in English Lit from the University of Victoria before unleashing herself on the unsuspecting workforce. However, she quickly realized her aversion to fluorescent lights and the numbers 9-2-5 wouldn’t gain her kudos from her various bosses. Luckily, her husband whisked her to a tiny logging town where she couldn’t find a job, unless you count a stint as secretary to the warden of a minimum security prison. There, Cindy began writing novels, and she hasn’t looked back. Because, honestly, what other employer in their right mind would want her?

Cindy’s mission in life is to see her surname spelled properly—with an E. So take heed. That’s P-r-o-c-t-E-r. Not, no, never, under any circumstances should you spell Procter with two O’s. Cindy lives in British Columbia with her family, a cat obsessed with dripping tap water, and Allie McBeagle.

Review by: Tricia Pennington on April 10, 2013 :
A really cute & fun short story! I really enjoyed this one, just wish it was a little longer! Felt too short & almost felt like I had picked it up midway through instead of at the beginning. Since I did enjoy it, though, I'll be on the lookout for more books by this author. Hoping her full length novels are just as good!

Cindy Procter-King is great at these short reads. This story was fun and short enough to read in a few minutes. But yeah, I would love a full novel with these characters.

Absolutely loved this cute short story. If I had to pick a negative it would be the story is to short. I was just getting into the story of Claire and Ridge and then it was over.

Review by: Melinda Szymanik on Dec. 05, 2012 :
I enjoyed this short read, being quickly drawn in by the two main characters and their magnetic appeal. I thought it well written and it definitely fits the romantic mould. I would have liked to see where a full novel version would have taken these two appealing people.
