Author Interview & 2 Book Giveaway: Cynthia Enuton

Welcome to Author Cynthia Enuton

I grew up in the suburbs of Maryland, outside the city limits of Washington D.C. I received a BA degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland in Baltimore (UMBC). I’ve worked at a State facility for severe emotionally challenged children and adolescents for over 13 years. I currently reside in Florida as a children/young adult author where I do book signings at retail stores, special events, festivals, and school visits.

Night owl, or early bird?
When I’m in a creative mood then I’m a night owl. At night, when everyone is asleep and the stars and moon are out, is the best time for my creative side to shine. But when I want to get the most out of my day with chores, marketing my books, and spending time with my dogs, then I’m an early bird.
