Cindy Callaghan is both a writer and business professional.
Her writing niche is tween girls. Few other writers today match Cindy’s prowess in this genre. “I just ‘get’ them,” she says. “Somewhere inside me, I think maybe I still am one.”
Her books: JUST ADD MAGIC (2010), LOST IN LONDON (2013), LUCKY ME (2014), LOST IN PARIS (2015), LOST IN ROME (2015), LOST IN IRELAND (2016), LOST IN HOLLYWOOD (2016), SYDNEY MACKENZIE KNOCKS ‘EM DEAD (2017), JUST ADD MAGIC: Potion Problems (2018), and SALTWATER SUMMERS (2019) magically capture the tween voice and experience.
When asked what it is about her books that tweens love, she chuckles and says, “The funny! Without a doubt, it’s the funny situations, characters and dialogue. A few milkshakes and farts don’t hurt either.”
Cindy’s first book, the much-loved JUST ADD MAGIC, is now a breakout Amazon Original live-action series.
Having spent nearly twenty years in corporate America, climbing her way from the basement and right through the glass ceiling, Cindy has a business savvy that’s a force to be reckoned with.
Her writing peers constantly note that Cindy is incredibly prolific. In addition to her publications, Cindy’s writing pipeline is robust, and her idea notebook overflowing with “more ideas than I could ever write in a lifetime.”
In addition to writing, Cindy’s passions include animal advocacy, running, movie-going, reading, podcasts, wine and girlfriends, all of which take a backseat to her three children, husband and menagerie of rescued-pets.
Cindy holds an MA and MBA. The Delawarian (by way of Los Angeles (USC)) is a Jersey girl at heart. She lives in Wilmington, and escapes to her PA mountain retreat whenever time will allow.
