A note from the author

CYNTHIA SANDERSHello everyone, I am a 25 year old woman and a first time book author of my children’s book Mia, the Monster of Fear and the Fairy of Courage. I am originally from Stockton, California but I currently live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have been living in Nevada for 13 years now. I have always had passion for writing since the age of 12 and began writing poems until I found my drive into writing teen drama stories. I just wanted to promote my first book published ever and it’s my FIRST children’s book at that. I never thought of writing one, but once I got sick I started to doubt myself and not believe in myself again. So, I felt a children’s book would be more relatable and realistic to children feeling that same way & parents understanding their children better. I am a avid reader but I have always loved to write since I was in middle school. I went to an accredited school named Milan Institute and studied Pharmacy Technician. I have been in a 4-year relationship, and now I’m getting back into writing
