Mary Cunningham

Bio:

Like Cynthia and Gus, my childhood best friend, Cynthia, and I grew up in a small, Southern Indiana town . . . the setting for the series. Not one summer day passed that we weren't playing softball, hide and seek, badminton, or croquet with friends in the vacant lot behind Becky's house.

 

In my attempt to grow up, I joined The Georgia Reading Association, and the Carrollton Creative Writers Club. When giving my fingers a day away from the keyboard, I enjoy golf, swimming and exploring the mountains of West Georgia where I live with my husband and adopted furry, four-legged daughter, Lucy. Together we've raised three creative children and are thrilled with our two granddaughters.

 

At last count, I've moved nine times to six different states (all after the age of thirty-six), and aside from the packing and unpacking, it's been a great experience, having made some dear and lasting friendships. My non-writing time is spent showing power point presentations on gathering ideas and the writing process to schools and libraries.

 

A Note From Mary Cunningham

Author, Mary Cunningham, is excited to announce the release of the 5thand final book in the award-winning series, Cynthia's Attic.

Cynthia's Attic: The Legend of Lupin Woods (Book 5) Book Blurb.

Cynthia and Gus have solved a lot of mysteries across time, but something is seriously wrong and things are beginning to unravel.

Aunt Belle is missing…again! Cynthia’s great-grandfather, Beau, was never found! And now they are wondering if Blackie is still making life miserable for Lilly and Annie.

This time, the twelve-year-old girls journey into a strange woods full of frightening creatures and dark secrets in search of answers.

From Aunt Belle's cottage to a small village in France, they meet new friends and discover a connection to New Orleans that may lead to the devious source behind these alarming developments. Or bigger trouble.

 

Read an excerpt from Cynthia's Attic: The Legend of Lupin Woods

My back pressed against a small tree as I peered over one shoulder, then the other. More blackness. I pulled my knees tight to my chest to create as small a target as possible. If I could keep still until morning, this place might be less formidable.

Those eyes …did they just move? Hair stood straight up on my neck as a low growl inched ever closer. I sucked in one last breath and hid my face waiting for a fatal blow or bite.

"Well, well. What do we have here?" My head jerked skyward. Yellow eyes hovered over me. "Cat got your tongue?"

The creature bent down and poked my upper arm with a furry finger. I wanted so badly to run, but sheer terror kept me plastered to the tree.

The hulking figure straightenedand chuckled. "I'm not planning to hurt you. What are you doing in Lupin?"

Lupin? I tried to answer, but dryness gripped my throat as if I'd swallowed an entire sandbox. Plus, an ominous word jumped into my brain. I'd heard something that sounded a lot like lupin once before. It was at the movies! Wolfman. Oh, no. Lupine is another name for wolf! Was I in a wolf forest?

My eyes scannedthe treetops. I might be saved if the sun rose soon, but light would have to pass through the dense canopy, and from where I sat, that seemed doubtful. The beast must've read my mind.

"If you're waiting for sunrise, you'll be disappointed." It smiled–or made a weak attempt–revealing huge, pointy teeth. "Instead of night and day, around here we have night and black."

I gulped and finally manufactured enough spit to choke out four words. "Why-am-I-here?"
