Cindy Baldwin is a fiction writer, essayist, and poet. As a middle schooler, she kept a book under her bathroom sink to read over and over while fixing her hair or brushing her teeth, and she dreams of writing the kind of books readers can’t bear to be without. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and daughter, surrounded by tall trees and wild blackberries. Her debut novel, Where The Watermelons Grow, was named an Indies Introduce/Indie Next pick for 2018, as well as receiving multiple starred reviews.
For Pitch Wars 2019, Cindy Baldwin is co-mentoring with Amanda Rawson Hill.
