Cindy Dale lives on the barrier beach on Long Island with her husband, two kids and assorted pets. To pay the bills, she works as a marketing consultant, with a focus on interactive and digital. She's very good at what she does, and enjoys it, but her real love is writing fiction.

Cindy has published roughly twenty stories in places like The South Carolina Review, Zoetrope: All-Story Extra, The Amherst Review, The Potomac Review, Reed, The Bridge, The Habersham Review, Flash!Point, Literary Potpourri, among others. Her stories have also been included in two anthologies: An Intricate Weave: Women Write About Girls and Girlhood (Iris Editions) and Tanzania on Tuesday: Writing by American Women Abroad (New Rivers Press). She was recently awarded a grant for fiction from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation.

One of these days, she will finish her novel. She and her husband have an antiquarian book collection that includes signed first editions from the likes of T.S. Elliot, Ezra Pound, Thomas Hardy, James Joyce, and Eugene O'Neill. She has a BA from The Pennsylvania State University.
