Born in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in 1971 Cynthia Queen spent her childhood growing up in the backwoods of Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Williamson High School, and studied at Penn Tech and Thomas Edison University.
Cynthia’s family always seemed one step ahead of the bill collectors and one penny short of paying the bills. Her writings reflect her hardships and lend to her work a sense of “down-to-earth” reality. She is the mother of two daughters who are now grown and settled with their own soul mates. Currently she has a small farm of seventy acres; a childhood goal since the age of four. After driving freight OTR she and her husband, Don, purchased their rundown farm in 2007. On this farm Cynthia has found new purpose; fixing everything including several run down rentals; raising goats, rescuing animals from time to time and helping others around her as she is able. It is her giving nature, quick-wit and positive attitude she attributes to her next dream becoming a reality; that of a recognized published author.
In her own words Cynthia states: “It is time. The farm needs me to push forward. The people here need me to push forward. My family needs me to push forward. What has held me back is that which locks many unknown books in attic trunks; the petrifying fear of criticism. I no longer have the luxury to worry. I can only hope I have brought to my readers my very best work. My literary goal is to create laughter and provoke thought. My family has laughed, my friends have laughed. It would be a sin if I did not allow the world to laugh, too.
Admittedly, as well, I hope to make enough income for a new barn. My readers will get to laugh and my animals will get to curl up in a warm stall on a cold winter night. A fair exchange, I believe.”
