Cindy Small arrived in N. Alabama following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. A native of New Orleans, she graduated from Tulane University with an undergraduate degree in Journalism and a Masters in Historic Preservation Studies. Since retirement a few years ago, Cindy emerges herself in art and writes regularly for various creative non-fiction publications. Many of her short stories are published and they all deal with the eccentricities of a NOLA native. Cindy's art is sold at two shops in North Alabama. She also volunteers for The Cancer Center in Huntsville as a patient care rep in the chemo room.
