Quotations: "I started out as an attorney, but when I stayed home to have and raise babies, I felt called to do the thing that I loved to do as a kid: write stories. It started when stories came to my head at 3 in the morning and they would not let me go back to sleep. So I would get up and unload them, knowing that if I did not, the words would rattle around in my brain and drive me crazy. This is how all of the writing has come to me, and this has proven two things to me. First, God has a specific plan for each of us and just when we think we have everything planned out the way we want, He reminds us what we are truly meant to do and be. Second, I am only a scribe. I don't know where the ideas come from, but I certainly cannot take credit for them, except for the mere action of writing them on the page".
Cynthia Millen married James Roberts on March 29, 1980. The marriage produced five children.
