Cindy Loven, an avid reader all her life, is seeing her dreams fulfilled with the publication of her first novel, Swept Away, part of Abingdon’s Quilts of Love series. Born and raised in Arkansas, she loves her home state and is happy to live there with her husband of nearly twenty-nine years and her adult son. She and her family are very active in their local church, serving in many volunteer positions. She and her husband are very serious about informing parents about the dangers of the choking game, after loosing their youngest son to this dreadful ‘game’ in 2009. When not busy with church or her job as a “PR gal” for another author, you can find Cindy in her craft room,sewing, crocheting or making cards.
“Grandma Sari is my favorite character; she is both of my grandmothers, combined. She is feisty, sassy and afraid that she is losing her mind with what appears to be the onset of Alzheimer’s. The thing I like least about Grandma Sari is how she often treats Sara Jane.”
