About

Sometimes I go to a source of paper, albeit toilet paper, scraps of receipts, gum wrappers, sticky notes, or the closest journal available to write whatever has popped into my head. This blog site is a source to display those thoughts through essays, poetry, or short flash fiction stories with full disclosure.

Cynthia M. Garcia has a BA in English with a minor in Creative Writing from Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago. She is the owner and operator of this site, a short story fiction writer, an award-winning essayist, a marathoner, a mother of two, and lives with her husband as an empty nester in the northwest suburbs of Illinois. She is in the process of writing and illustrating a children’s book. Cynthia is also the owner of the children’s book and illustration review blog site Written By.
