Can you tell us who you are and what genre(s) you write in?

Cindy Freland’s passion is teaching workshops, designing and managing Facebook pages and helping authors get their books on Amazon. She has written many business books, including one on Facebook for business, “Easy Guide to Your Facebook Business Page,” and several children’s books. Freland lives in Bowie, Maryland with her family and dog, Juno. She enjoys crafts, painting, walking, swimming, animals, beaches, and baking.

 

Pick one topic you think somehow sets you apart and tell us about it. Be it the twist you always incorporate into your stories, or how you build your novel. Is there something different about how you approach your writing that you would like to share?

I love writing children’s books about the Chesapeake Bay. It helps children learn the beauty and the bounty of the Bay, life lessons, and 20 facts about the Bay creatures. I always include a human and their relationship with the Bay creatures.

If you could convey one message that would be heard all over the world, what would it be and why?

Respect and love each other and that includes the creatures. We only live one life, enjoy it to the fullest without war and hate.
