For the last book by Cindy – VOICES IN MY HEAD – this review wrote, ‘There are many as kinds of poetry as there are those who write poems and Cindy J. Smith is an example. Not trained as a writer she simply shares her musings that have found special places in her memory as she has traveled through many jobs and many experiences. According to her biography on the books cover, `Cindy Smith was raised in upstate New York. She has worked a variety of jobs during her life–waitress, store associate, certified electronic technician. She is currently employed as an over-the-road truck driver. Cindy has lived is many states from Maine to Florida. She now resides in Indiana. Through all her experiences, she had voices in her head dictating poems. The voices would not relent until Cindy wrote the poems down. She invites you to eavesdrop.’ Now Cindy turns to children’s poetry and succeeds quite well with a fine assist from illustrator Erika M Szabo.

The rhyming is charming and allows her story about Caesar and Lori and the fairies unfold at a comfortable pace.

As far back as she can remember, Cindy J. Smith has written poetry, and with every experience in life, she has found inspiration. Wife, Mother and Grandmother, she has a myriad of beautiful memories to draw from. Never having been good at playing the part of “starving artist”, she has had many careers, but her current one, an over-the-road truck driver with her husband, Dave, has provided amazing opportunities for inspiration in her later years. 

She published her first collection of poetry, Voices In My Head, originally in 2011. Publishing was something her daughter had always wanted her to do so she dedicated this in her memory. In July of 2013, Cindy published her second book, They Won’t Shut Up as a birthday gift to her angel daughter. In the back of this collection, several poems written by Jasmine are included. Later that year she republished both of these independently. In 2015 Cindy published Rhymes Through Time. This anthology was different than the first two first as it was much smaller (about 60 poems instead of 140+) and it was done completely randomly. Rhymes also has a sampling of poems from the first two books. Cindy published a children’s book, Caesar And The Bluebells, in 2016. Caesar is being re-illustrated and should be available again soon. Her last book of poetry is Words On The Wind which was also published in 2016. Like Rhymes, this collection is random and is not as big as the first two.

Currently, Cindy is working on the follow up to the Caesar book and a “real novel” that she started in November when she participated in NANO. She also has a project titled “365” that is a poetry collection. This project has one poem written every day. At this point she is up to date with 80 poems written as of 3/21/17.
