Cynthia Toolin-Wilson is a life-long New Englander. Born and bred in Rhode Island, she frequently returns to Bristol to enjoy fried seafood and Del’s frozen lemonade near the Bay. She now divides her time between her work as a professor in a small Connecticut college, and the home she shares with her husband and his 24 pound cat, Lightning, in Vermont.

Cynthia earned an M.F.A. in Writing (Creative Nonfiction: Memoir) from Albertus Magnus College in 2015. Her more than 60 nonfiction journal publications and conference presentations include several memoir pieces. Her book, The Story of Holy Apostles College and Seminary, co-authored with Prof. Robert Hubbard of Albertus Magnus College, was published in 2019.

Her first book length memoir, Survivor, A Memoir of Forgiveness, is currently under contract with En Route Books and Media.
