cindyauthor1cWelcome to my author and brush artist website! Please take the time to look around. I blog infrequently, though it is often image heavy with photos and my latest brush paintings. And I twitter (too) frequently! My local indie is the fabulous Mysterious Galaxy Books, and they carry Silver Phoenix and Fury of the Phoenix (Greenwillow Books), as well as the Diverse Energies anthology (Tu Books) which features my short story “Blue Skies”. You can order personalized copies of Serpentine and Sacrifice now (Month9Books) through Mysterious Galaxy!  (Leave a note when ordering online that you’d like the book personalized and to whom.) WANT, my first near-future thriller set in Taipei will be published by Simon Pulse June 13th, 2017!

UPDATE: Thank you Veronica Roth for your blurb!
“WANT by Cindy Pon paints a vibrant picture of futuristic Taipei, with characters that will stay with you long after you finish. A fresh, compelling—and timely—addition to YA science fiction.” – Veronica Roth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Carve the Mark and the Divergent series

Sacrifice is a Junior Library Selection for Fall 2016!

Sacrifice received a *starred review* from Kirkus Reviews!

Serpentine is named a “Big Indie Book” of Fall 2015 by Publishers Weekly. I received my first review from PW as well: “Action, secrets, love, and a search for identity combine in a powerful tale about what ensues when the underworld and the real world collide.”—Publishers Weekly
