Meet Local Children's Author Cindy Cipriano

Posted on 7/26/2013 by Karen Feeney

Meet Local Children

Join us in Walkertown to meet local children's author Cindy Cipriano. She will share her new middle-grades fantasy novel, The Circle, book one in The Sidhe series.

About the Book:
Calum Ranson is sure of three things: his cousin Finley is alive, Calum will find him, and no one knows Calum and his family are Sidhe. No one until Laurel shows up at his mother's bookstore wearing a dark clan's mark.

When Calum learns the details surrounding the disappearance of Laurel's brother, he suspects the evil Hobayeth clan. Calum and Laurel work together in the Realm of Man and the Otherworld to rescue her brother revealing a connection between Calum and Laurel that may cost Finley his life.

About the Author:
Cindy Cipriano lives in North Carolina with her husband, son, and 27 pets. Okay, maybe not 27. More like three dogs, one cat, and many, many, fish. Cindy enjoys spending time with her family, writing, and the avoidance of cooking.

Cindy is a 2012 recipient of the Burroughs Wellcome Fund PRISM award, and was named Outstanding Science Teacher in 2009 by the NC Science Teachers Association.

The Circle is Cindy’s first novel, and the first book in the Sidhe Series. Two of her short stories, "What Lance Saw," and "Miller's Island," were published in the children's anthology, Doorway to Adventure (September, 2010)

Books will be available for purchase. We will also hold a raffle for a copy of The Circle and other summer reading prizes. Light refreshments will be served. Call 336-703-2990 for more information.
