Manuscript-Eating Slush Pile Monster

Texas Associated Press Managing Editors contest for commentary/criticism. Some

jockey. She obtained her degree in psychology from the University
Texas-Permian Basin. Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away she studied film.
Cindy is a past president of the Missouri
Chapter of the Romance Writers of America and a long-time member of the
Darkstormy Writers Group. She also
belongs to the Saturday Writers Group
and the Romance Writers of Americaand
has written numerous articles about crafting and submitting manuscripts.
In her spare time, Cindy sings with the Sweet Adelines International
championship chorus, The River
Blenders, and in the festival choir of the Lutheran Church of the
Resurrection. She enjoys tutoring English-as-a-Second-Language students so
eventually they'll be able to read her books.
Known for her outrageous sense of humor and her quick smile, Cindy is happiest
when hiding behind her computer terminal typing her heart out and avoiding
telephone sales pitches.
