Cindy Skaggs grew up on stories of mob bosses, horse thieves, cold-blooded killers, and the last honest man. Those mostly true stories gave her a lifelong love of storytelling that enables her writing addiction. She is the author of seven published romantic suspense novels, including The Untouchables series for Entangled Publishing, plus the Team Fear series.
Cindy is a writer, a public speaker, and a military veteran who holds an MFA from Pacific Lutheran University and an MA in Creative Writing from Regis University. She is an advocate for military and veteran issues, mom to two humans, and a reluctant wrangler of too many critters. Her journal publications include So to Speak Feminist Journal, The New Limestone Review, Progenitor Art & Literary Review, Soundings, Wanderlust Journal, Beyond Words Magazine, the Fredericksburg Literary Art Review, and Brilliant Flash Fiction. She is a native of Colorado where she teaches graduate and undergraduate creative writing.
