Cindy O’Quinn is an Appalachian writer who grew up in the mountains of West Virginia.

In 2016 Cindy, along with her husband and sons, made the move from Virginia to the northern woods of Maine and started homesteading.

She has had a longtime love of everything horror, thanks to her mom who started her at a very young age. They spent many a weekend in the 70’s going to the local drive in theaters.

Cindy is the author of Dark Cloud on Naked Creek, and the dark poetry collection, Return to Graveyard Dust, which made it to the 2017 HWA Bram Stoker preliminary ballot.

Her work has been published in the HWA Poetry Showcase Vol V, Nothing’s Sacred Vol 4, Sanitarium Magazine, Blood Moon Rising Magazine, Lycan Valley Press, Deadman’s Tome, Bewildering Stories, Rat’s Ass Review, Black Petals, Rag Queen Periodical, Moonchild Magazine, The Paragon Journal, Star*Line, SFPA Halloween Poetry Reading 2018, and The 2017 Rhysling Anthology.
