About the author
Meet me, Cynthia Ann Boesen Parker. I was born October 9, 1964.
I am from Glen Ellyn, Illinois, and live in Sarasota, Florida.
The early years of my life have influenced my entire remainder of my life. I went through neurosurgery nine times when I was five years old . The next forty years have been spent making up for time lost to compensating for my weaknesses.
Earning an Associate’s degree from College of DuPage was just the beginning for me.
Moving to Sarasota, Florida was the best thing I’ve ever done.
In 1990, I met the man destined to become my husband. We married on January 19, 1991.
On January 19, 2011, we celebrated our twentieth wedding anniversary. There have been many changes in our lives: lost loved ones, furthering of education, changes in residence; but life is stable for now.
As a fluke, I began writing poetry. I was told that I’m good at it.
I enrolled in an “Adult and Community Education” Creative writing course…that one course has changed my life, forever.
One of the lines from one of my first poems expresses exactly how I feel, namely:
“I want to write, write, write till my words touch the sky”
This is me, Cynthia Ann Boesen Parker. I’ve gone through serious illness and life tragedies to get here; to the writing that has given me a wonderful new life.
“Look out world, here comes Cynthia Ann Boesen Parker”.
