Cindy Skaggs

Cindy Skaggs grew up on stories of mob bosses, horse thieves, cold-blooded killers, & the last honest man. Those mostly true stories gave her a lifelong love of storytelling and heroes. Her search for story took her around the world with the Air Force before returning to Colorado where she’s turning her lifelong love of storytelling into fast-paced romantic suspense. She has seven published novels, an MFA in Creative Writing, three jobs, two kids, and more pets than she can possibly handle.
