Cynthia H. Wise first conceived the idea for Portrait of Rage years ago. At that time, she wrote stories for her own enjoyment. Inspired at an early age by the paranormal, Cynthia enjoyed having the ability to become someone else, travel to distant places, and experience new things as she wrote.
During the long process of editing Portait of Rage, an idea began to take root. Having begun another manuscript years before that she had entitled Eyes of Autum, Cynthia realized how simple it would be to integrate the two worlds. It would be simple to let the story flow from one inexplicable, exciting possibility to another. And voilà—The Marcel Experience was born.
Cynthia H. Wise lives with her husband in Marietta, Georgia, where her series, The Marcel Experience, is centered. When she is not writing novels about the supernatural and the fantastic, Cynthia can be found with her husband, Cliff, their two dogs, Jake and Sadie, and their cockatiel, Sam.
