About the Author

Cynthia P. Cerny is published author of several books, including the best-selling Losers, Creeps, Jerks & Weirdos: A Dating Story.  With refreshing transparency, the hallmark of her writing and speaking, Cynthia continues to appeal to, and attract, an ever-broadening audience of men and women, all ages, all circumstances.  A long-time resident of Colorado, Cynthia spent over twenty years in the corporate world as the right-hand “man” to presidents, CEOs, and chairmen of boards.  Compelled to write, Cynthia draws from her own experiences to reach out to others, bringing a message of hope, inspiration, and healing.

From “entertaining and humorous” in Losers to “inspirational and hopeful” in Luna Tides to “a work bound to change your life” in What About Love?, Cynthia’s writing has been described as profound, genuine, and masterful, although she will tell you she is simply “a typist.”

In addition to being a CCD kid and a graduate from the School of Hard Knocks and Slow Learners, Cynthia attended the University of Denver.  She is dedicated to sharing a simple, practical message of truth and empowerment for women and men.  Cynthia understands that sometimes we are afraid to learn what our gut already knows, but cautions that what you deny does not disappear, and always—always—actions trump words.
