Cindy is also the editor of and contributor to Everything Corgi: A Book for Lovers of Cardis and Pems, a trade paperback anthology now in its 4th printing, The Watching: A Corgi Christmas Tale, The Watching: A Corgi Puppy’s Christmas Surprise, and The Watching: Corgi Christmas Miracles, all published by CorgiAid, Inc. She is a regular writer for the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America Newsletter and has edited many dog-related articles, book manuscripts, and websites, and has spoken at pet writing conferences.

Cindy also has extensive experience as a freelance writer and editor for nonprofit organizations, including New York Medical College, the Dana Foundation, the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation, the Overbrook Foundation, Funders Concerned About AIDS, and the LEAD Program in Business. In addition, she has written for Web sites on American classical music composers, Eastern bodywork techniques, and minority student business careers; edited academic papers and fellowship applications; and written newsletters and publicity for modern dance presenting organizations.
