Cindy Faughnan writes contemporary middle grade fiction that often takes place in Vermont where she taught seventh and eighth grade English. She completed an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Vermont College of Fine Arts and loves talking about her experience there. She won the Pen New England Children’s Book Caucus Discovery Award and is a member of SCBWI and the League of Vermont Writers. She is represented by Mona Kanin of Great Dog Literary.

I co-wrote a poetry column with Kelly Bennett in ROAR! a delightful magazine for kids.
