For twenty-six years my life whirled around song and dance: I was a professional dancer/choreographer for most of my adult life and never gave much thought to a writing career until 2005.  Don't ask me what happened, but I suddenly felt drawn to my computer to write about thing I have experienced ( greatly exaggerated upon, of course) with my husband's Thoroughbreds and happening at the race track.


Surprised?  Why didn't I write about my experiences with dance? Eh, believe it or not life at the race track is much more....racy.  The drama is outrageous-- not that dancers don't know how to create drama, believe me, they do, but race trackers just seem to get more down and dirty with it, which make for great story telling - great fiction.


I didn't start out writing books, The Unbridled Series started out as a TV drama, the Hollywood readers loved the show.  The problem was that we couldn't sell it.  So one of the readers said, "Cindy, don't be stupid, turn your scripts into book." and so I did!



In 2011 I took the big leap and exchanged my tap shoes for a lap top- I retired from dance.  It was a scary proposition, I was terrified, but I had the full support of my husband- Saint Bill. That year was a huge transition for me, I went from dancing hard for five hours a night to sitting in front of a computer. I still work-out and take my dog, Harvey, for a daily run.  I have to, or I'd be as big as a house.  Do I miss dance?  Sometimes I do.  I miss the students. I miss choreographing musicals, but I LOVE my books, and I love sharing them with you!
