Cynthia A. Morgan is the creator of the mythical realm of Jyndari and author of the recently published epic fantasy, “Dark Fey: The Reviled”, which draws the reader into a mystical realm of primordial forests, magic and the lives of Light-loving and Darkness-revering Feykind. Not to be confused with pixies or “Tinkerbell” type fairies, the feyfolk of Jyndari are winged beings the size of any human who live in a realm where tradition, magic, and spirituality are fundamentals of everyday life.
Cynthia is also the author of the trending blog booknvolume.com, which in less than two years has amassed over 5000 followers and has hosted in excess of 90,000 visitors from more than 170 countries worldwide. Her social media reach continues to grow via Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter where she has gained an additional 3000+ followers. She is a current member of the Independent Author Network, has had poetry published on the websites MuseZine.com, Poetry.com, D’Verse.com, NaPoWriMo.com and is also a prominent guest writer on Poet’sCorner.com. In March 2015 Cynthia was interviewed by The Lebanon Daily News about the publication of DARK FEY and upcoming book signing events.
Some of her other interests include a deep love of animals and the environment, which led her to become a Guardian with the ASPCA since 2008. She loves music; frequently is heard laughing; finds the mysteries of ancient times, the paranormal and the possibilities of life elsewhere in the cosmos intriguing, and believes in the power of Love, Hope, Peace and Joy, all of which is reflected in her lyrically elegant writing style.
Cynthia is currently writing “Dark Fey: Standing in Shadows”, book two of the eagerly anticipated Dark Fey Trilogy.
Dark Fey, The Reviled is a fantasy set in the primordial forests of mystical time in a land peopled by both Light Loving and Darkness Revering Faeriekind, or Fey. It is a tale of Light and Darkness, of Joy and Sorrow, the Loved and the Unloved. It shares the Trials and Triumph of Courage and Perseverance while wrapping the reader in lush, lyrical descriptions and exquisitely developed characters.
In the mystical realm of Jyndari, a relationship between two unsuspecting, yet kindred souls who are separated by far more than social stigma, blossoms in secrecy that could shatter both their worlds. Ayla, a Light loving, Guardian of Childfey hides more than a few secrets; secrets that isolate her and set her apart. Secrets that bring her to the attention of one who comes in shadow and silence; one who watches, waiting for the ideal moment to step from the darkness, reveal the truth about himself and alter the course of her life forever.
Escape into a world of Magic and Mystery; into a Realm of Beauty and Enchantment, into an intense adventure for your Mind and Spirit that will leave you yearning for more.

Blessings and Giggles? by Cynthia Morgan
Yes, why not? After all, God invented Laughter, so why not share our giggles and smiles with the world? It could be easy, I suppose, to sit long faced, moping, sullen, brooding, cantankerous, but what purpose does it serve? One only ends up vexing everyone else, including oneself!
As Children we smile and giggle throughout the day. We laugh, we play, we make up rhymes ( and some of us never stop doing that!), we create words, (or that!) we reach out to others with open hearts and smiling spirits. So what happens to change that and when? Metaphysics may not be my Ph D, it may not be my cup of tea (yep, there I go rhyming again), but where do the giggles go? What brings reality crashing down upon us to make laughter stale and smiles sour?
I cannot tell you, but for every frown, there IS a smile, somewhere, waiting to be shared. For every growl of anger or bitterness, there IS an infectious giggle just waiting to burst forth, and for every scoff of derision and unkind muttering there IS a light-hearted tune playing quietly in the background…somewhere. It may be half way around the world, and it may be just next door, it’s hard to say, really, where you may find it or when it may suddenly, smilingly, appear, but it IS there.
Now, what if you were the melodious tune being whistled? What if you were the genuine smile offered in the face of a scowl? What if you supplied the unexpected, mirthful giggle? Whose life might you lighten and brighten? Whose day might be inexorably altered? If that person thought Happiness was miles away and, instead, it was just in the next office cubicle, or beside them on the tube, or in the next car while mired in rush hour traffic, then Heaven would be, briefly, within reach, wouldn’t it?
And YOU would be the Angel winging Love and Hope, Peace and Joy and GIGGLES, to the world.
So yes, Blessings and Giggles, my dear Friends.
