About the Publisher
Cynthia A. Sudor
Author and marketing professional, Cynthia A. Sudor is the owner/president of CARACYN Publishing LLC.
Cynthia’s award-winning children’s book series, Adventures at Green Apple Acres, teaches children how to navigate life’s twists and turns while enjoying entertaining stories with themes and lessons. Beautiful illustrations showcase the stories, bringing the lessons to life for children and readers of all ages.
With the writing of Book Three, Adventures at Green Apple Acres, Christmas on the Farm, Cynthia created her own publishing company, CARACYN Publishing LLC. Now, in addition to the books in the Adventures at Green Apple Acres series, she also publishes quality books written by other authors.
Cynthia grew up in Hershey, Pennsylvania, loving animals and nature, which is evident in her award-winning children’s book series, Adventures at Green Apple Acres. It was her dream when she was a young girl, reading the horse books of author Marguerite Henry, to become a children’s author. She also dreamed of having a farm of her own at the foot of the mountains, like the place where she rode horses as a young girl at a family friend’s farm. She achieved both of these goals, and more.
After graduating from Drexel University, she worked at Hershey Entertainment & Resort Company, as the first woman hired in middle management. After seventeen years, and promotions that led to being the only woman on the executive staff of Hersheypark/Arena/Stadium, she left to start her own business, Cynthia A. Sudor Enterprises/Cynergy Marketing.
Cynthia took a short sabbatical from her business to serve as a Founding Vice President of Sales & Marketing for the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts, Harrisburg, PA. This $52.7 million facility was the first of its kind.
In addition to her marketing business and career, she achieved her goal of writing a children’s book series, Adventures at Green Apple Acres. This series is about animals that overcome challenges on a farm, learning valuable life lessons. The five stories in each book have a moral and theme to them. There are interactive questions at the end of each story. Photos of the real animals and humans in the stories are featured in the back of the book.
Cynthia recalls from her earliest memories her passion for horses, even drawing pictures of horses. She shared a love of horseback riding with her father, Milan Sudor, a Pennsylvania State Policeman. With her father and mother, Mary, her sister, Janet, and brother, Rick, growing up included swimming, canoeing and picnics at Mt. Gretna, walks in beautiful Pennsylvania State Parks and playing baseball with neighborhood children in the fields in her neighborhood. Her first dog was a toy collie named Tina. Spending time with family friends in Weston, PA, inspired her dream to have her own farm with horses someday. That dream came true, with a lot of hard work and determination.
Cynthia, her Arabian horses and ever-entertaining barn cats enjoy farm life at CARACYN Arabians at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Pennsylvania. She shares her home with several cats that she rescued from her farm.
Cynthia loves to write and travel and read. She has traveled to many foreign countries and throughout the United States. She also likes to design and make jewelry. As a tribute to her Ukrainian heritage, she also creates another art, Psyanky, Ukrainian egg decorating.
