Introducing author Cynthia Mackey – Readilearn

This month I am pleased to welcome first time author Cynthia Mackey to the readilearn blog.

Cynthia has always loved children’s literature.  After years of teaching preschool and kindergarten, she is proud to have written her first children’s book, Katie Shaeffer Pancake Maker.  Cynthia writes in her spare time and has plans to publish more picture books for children.  She lives on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada with her family and her piano where she faithfully continues her weekend pancake tradition.

Synopsis: In Katie Shaeffer Pancake Maker, Katie is too young to use the stove so she dreams of making her very own pancakes. Join Katie and her friend Baxter in this fun story as they use a passion

for collecting and building to find a way to realize Katie’s pancake dream!  This upbeat energetic tale with great potential for reading aloud will appeal to adults and young children alike.  The book includes a predictable rhyme that will have children chiming in as the story unfolds.  Children will celebrate with Katie and Baxter as their pancake dream becomes reality!

Welcome to readilearn, Cynthia. We are looking forward to getting to know you a little better.

Thanks for inviting me!

Cynthia, when did you know you wanted to be a writer?

      Thank you for reading and commenting, Patricia. I’ve missed your posts too. I think I’ve forgotten how to race. I’m way behind the starting line. No apologies are ever needed for me, but thank you. I hope you are doing well.

    How fabulous that you got to test drive this book with your granddaughter. It does sound a fun upbeat read and a celebration of creativity – I can see why this is right up your street.

      Hi Pauline. Thanks for reading the entire interview. Cynthia’s book is great. I got to be one of her Beta readers, and G2 has been patiently waiting for the “real” book ever since. She loved it from the beginning, even without pictures.
