Cindy Cipriano lives in North Carolina with her husband, son and their 27 pets.

Not really.

Just two dogs who think they are children and three cats who think they are raccoons. It only seems as if they make 27. When Cindy isn't writing, she enjoys spending time with her family and the avoidance of cooking.
