Cindy Chandler Pye was born and raised in Louisiana. After high school she studied English through the Institute of Children’s Literature, and Louisiana Tech University.

After she and her husband married and raised their children to adulthood, she picked up her dream since her teenage years and is pursuing a writing career in the genres of Adult Inspirational Fiction and Non-Fiction, as well as Children’s Fiction.

A highlight in high school for Cindy was earning first place in ninth grade, and third place in tenth grade in the annual poetry contest through Louisiana Tech University English Department. As an adult, during two consecutive years she received honorable mention for poetry through Sparrowgrass Poetry Contest, and her dream of becoming a published poet came true. She continues writing poetry as she pursues her love of writing fiction.

Cindy is now working on an upcoming debut novel loosely based on a family legend discovered while researching genealogy, which is in editing at this time.

 She and her husband live in a house in the woods with her opinionated cat by the name of Slinky, a family cat named Shadow, and a kitten named River. When she is not writing, Cindy loves reading in the Inspirational Historic Fiction genre. Some of the other things she enjoys are keeping up with friends and family, container gardening, landscape design, walking in the woods near home, genealogy research, crochet, and sewing personal quilts.
