Cynthia H. Graves
Cindy Graves was raised by her children in Utah, after having narrowly missed several unsuccessful attempts by her loving parents and older siblings in Connecticut. There is some debate over whether the last rearage attempt was, indeed, successful, or whether it was yet another failed attempt. When asked why she is the way she is, Cindy smiles sweetly and says, in her most childlike voice, "My children raised me this way. . . ". We can only assume that the final attempt was successful. As a single mother of four, Cindy studied Applied Mathematics and recieved her Bachelor of Science degree from Weber State University in 1994. She then went on to complete a 23 year career as an SQA Programmer and Analyst. She is currently retired from the technical world, writing poetry and children's stories, and living in Utah with her mother, 6 dogs, and 3 cats.
