Cynthia's mother read to her and her siblings almost every night. Cynthia DeFelice is a thrilling
story writer for kids. When Cynthia was working as a
librarian, she read aloud to children

with their mouths hung open. It wasn't until then when Cynthia wanted to become a writer and make kids look that fascinated while reading one of her books. Cynthia's occupation is an author. She used to have a job as a librarian. " My mom is the one who made
me love books and stories, and is,
I'm sure, the reason I am a writer." Cynthia DeFelice was born in

17 novels and 12 picture books in just 21 years! 1. When Cynthia was a little
girl and people
asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up, she only said, " HAPPY." 2. When Cynthia DeFelice was a kid,
they all had some sort of nickname.
Hers was DeDe. When she got married,
she took her husbands last name. So then,
she would be DeDe DeFelice. She thought
her name had too many d's so she changed
it to her real birth name, Cynthia DeFelice. FUN FACTS!!!! " I enjoy the thrill of creating a character
