Cynthia A. Rodriguez was born in a small Connecticut town. She grew up knowing her creative energy burned brightly and was always getting into some project or other. In February of 2012, she joined the United States Army. During her deployment to Afghanistan in July 2013, she wrote Mystic Waters, and later the sequel, Chasing the Tide. In her downtime, you can find her watching movies ranging anywhere from classic movies to action flicks—she has a weakness for Marvel adaptations— and reading steamy novels. She is stationed in Germany where she lives with her husband Juan and their Miniature Pinscher, Winnie (as in Pooh).
