Cynthia is also a member of the Colonial American Christian Writers, and will be contributing articles to the Colonial Quills website.
Her love for history, especially the American Revolutionary War period, along with being a member of the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), give Cynthia a wealth of knowledge to use as a writer. People matter to Cynthia, especially her family for whom she gave up law school in order to be a stay-at-home mom. Her love for people spills over into her everyday life. She enjoys using her expertise as a genealogist to help others find their roots. Along with speaking at genealogical events, Cynthia has written several genealogical histories about the nearly 8,000 people she has researched. To follow Cynthia’s weekly blog posts, please visit her website Soar With Eagles.
Cynthia and her co-author La-Tan Roland Murphy have written an anthology, God’s Provision in Tough Times, that deals with unemployment and financial hardship. Both women, along with their fifteen contributing writers, have personally experienced unemployment and the difficulties brought on by a lack of income. God’s Provision in Tough Times is expected to be published in July 2013, by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. It is available now on Amazon for pre-orders.
