Cynthia Woolf was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in the mountains west of Golden. She spent her early years running wild around the mountain side with her friends.
Their closest neighbor was one quarter of a mile away, so her little brother was her playmate and her best friend. That fierce friendship lasted until his death in 2006.
Cynthia was and is an avid reader. Her mother was a librarian and brought new books home each week. This is where young Cynthia first got the storytelling bug. She wrote her first story at the age of ten. A romance about a little boy she liked at the time.
She worked her way through college and went to work full time straight after graduation and there was little time to write. Then in 1990 she and two friends started a round robin writing a story about pirates. She found that she missed the writing and kept on with other stories. In 1992 she joined Colorado Romance Writers and Romance Writers of America. Unfortunately, the loss of her job demanded the she not renew her memberships and her writing stagnated for many years.
In 2000, she saw an ad in the paper for a writers conference being put on by CRW and decided she'd attend. One of her favorite authors, Catherine Coulter, was the keynote speaker. Cynthia was lucky enough to have a seat at Ms. Coulter's table at the luncheon and after talking with her, decided she needed to get back to her writing. She rejoined both CRW and RWA that day and hasn't looked back.
Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and the great friends she's made at CRW for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.

Smashwords book reviews by Cynthia Woolf
- Love on Cloud Nine
on Nov. 10, 2011
Love on Cloud Nine, a short story by Linda Andrews was very enjoyable. Glynis Ahdeed manages up and down drafts. Roland James is a tornado wrangler, the rock stars of Supercell where they live. I found the story very original, fun and an enjoyable read. There was a incident in Glynis' past that is referred to quite a lot, but we never really know what that incident was. I think that would have help to see why Glynis was the way she was, if we had gotten detail on that incident.
Given the short lenght of this story Ms. Andrews did very well mixing in background with the on going story.
- The Vampire's Hope
on Oct. 10, 2012
A Vampires Hope is one of the most interesting vampire stories I’ve read recently. Ellie and Ian are a great couple. The take on the vampire legend is fresh and new. The story flows flawlessly and completely to a satisfying end. I highly recommend Ms. Winters story.
