Cindy J. Smith


I grew up in the country of Upstate New York and now reside in the boonies of Midwestern Indiana. I am a coffee-addicted truck driver (as if there was any other kind). I have written poetry all my life. The topics and poems just come into my head. I try to write in the first person for most of them. I do this as people are more apt to relate to something when they are not feeling like they are the target. Some of my poems are true, either for me or for someone I know. I believe in magic and that life is worth living. I hope that my words will touch every reader in some way. I want everyone to open their eyes and really see what is before them.

From a very young age, Jasmine was a captive audience for my poems. As she grew older, she was a willing critic. She always wanted me to publish. In fact, she sent one of my poems out to a contest. Excited when it was accepted for publication, she believed it proved she was right. Well, I disagreed until after her passing. Finally, my daughter's wish is fulfilled. And I feel the warmth of her

    This is a well-written children's story! Knights, magic, evil bad guys and true love. The flow is easy. A nice lesson in why keeping secrets is not a good idea! Great Job!

    What a wonderful spin on the idiocy of the health nazis! Prin is a baker's son who must flee when his family is arrested by the Health Watch Inquisitors. He leads us on a wayward path that finds a magician, a tin man/scarecrow, evil munchkins, dwarves and elves, and of course a Princess that needs rescuing. The pages could not turn fast enough to outrun this great story. A well written piece and an eyeopener to any who are brave enough to think after reading it! Kudos!

    Jennifer is a diver for a salvage company. She finds a bottle in an old ship wreck and thinks it is pretty neat. She tries to clean it a bit then decides to go to sleep. Well, she wakes to a gorgeous man in her room singing and wearing a kilt!!! As if this is not bad enough, the said hunk tells her he is a Genie and she is his master!!! You will laugh and worry as he tries to prove his case and then they both find out someone is hunting him! Great start to a new series!!! Awesome!!

    Jayden is an archeologist on a dig in Hungary. He is positive he has just seen his sister, Emily. But, Emily is still in the US and won't be arriving until the next day for her vacation. Emily is excited about returning to Hungary. She has not been back since she was 12 and her parents stopped visiting her Grandmother. While waiting for the plane, a stranger speaks to her. Amazingly it is her friend from Hungary who lived next door to her Grandparents. When he meets her plane, Jayden gives Emily an ancient book he found and asked her to translate the Hun writing. What does the book say? Does it explain Jayden's vision? Are there secrets in the old country? Very captivating story!

    I am grateful that I was warned about drinking hot beverages while reading this book. Gerald has written the funniest and scariest book about the current situation in the US. He leaves no one unscathed: lying politicians, BLM, terrorists, and even activists for gun rights are given a run for their money. It was painful to read about the conviction and sentencing of PFC Manning in the wake of Hillary's criminal activities. Terrible how the laws seem to only be for those of us willing to follow them. This book is a wakeup call. It opens you to every point of view and therefore you are forced to see the truth you try to deny. Very well written.
