Cynthia Howerter is a lover of all things historical.
An alumnus of Penn State University with a B.S. in Education, Cynthia also pursued graduate studies in Educational Administration at Villanova University. In addition to her teaching and research skills, she trained as a public speaker with Christian Communicators. She is a member of Colonial American Christian Writers and the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).
An avid genealogist and history buff, she frequently visits historical sites to better understand the events that transpired there. Along with speaking about American history at schools and genealogical events, she has compiled several genealogical books about the nearly 10,000 people she’s researched.
People matter to Cynthia, especially her family for whom she gave up law school in order to be a stay-at-home mom. She enjoys sharing her faith and life experiences with others in the hope that they will know they aren’t alone in their life journey and that others care deeply about them. Her deep faith serves as a steadfast anchor, and no matter where she is, she is never too busy to share her love of God with others.
Versatility is a trademark for this busy writer, speaker, researcher, genealogist, mother, and wife. She is available to speak about the American colonial period as well as give motivational faith talks at small and large historical and faith-based groups and churches. To contact her about speaking, please leave a comment with your contact information.
Cynthia earned first place in Historical Fiction at the 2015 Florida Christian Writers Conference, and along with her co-author, La-Tan Roland Murphy, was a finalist in the 2014 Selah Awards for their non-fiction anthology, God’s Provision in Tough Times, at the Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers Conference. A member of the Fort Augusta Chapter of the Daughters of American Revolution (DAR), Cynthia believes that history should be alive and personal.
