There is one way yuppies Ginger and Steve can hold onto their wonderful lifestyle in Houston, but the solution is in Europe and may land Ginger in jail.

About Cynthia Coe (Knoxville, Tennessee Author)

Cynthia Coe

Welcome to my Author Page! I'm delighted that you clicked to find more info about me.

My newest book is "Considering Birds & Lilies: Finding Peace & Harmony in the Everyday World Around Us." I wrote this book towards the end of my time as an Environmental Stewardship Fellow of the Episcopal Church. This book includes many thoughts and insights I gained while writing my two books to introduce children to creation care, "Earth Our Garden Home" and "Wild Faith."

"Considering Birds & Lilies" is a product of my daily walks around my farm in Tennessee. As soon as I step outside, I'm able to forget all worries and concerns. I've also gained many insights in troubling problems by observing the trees, flowers, and animals living on my farm. In researching early Christianity, I realized that many of the saints and early Christian spiritual leaders also found a deep sense of spirituality while in nature. I wanted to share this tradition of nature-based spirituality with contemporary Christians, using everyday language and a conversational tone. (This is by no means an "academic" book!)

Between drafts of books on spirituality and faith, I dabble with novel writing. My first novel, "Ginger's Reckoning," was written in the late 1990's and based on my travels to Europe during my younger days. My second novel, "Runaway Kitty" was written as a means of coming to terms with my adventures as a mom of teenagers. It's written from the perspective of a 15 year old girl living in the Knoxville suburbs, but most of my readers of this novel have been parents and teachers of teens. I hope you'll take a look at these two novels.
