Author Cynthia Reyes

 Cynthia Reyes  is the author of A Good Home and  An Honest House.    Her children’s picture book will be published in late 2017.

Cynthia is a former journalist and executive producer with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. More than a hundred episodes of her programs have appeared on network television. She has won national and international awards and acclaim for her work, including the Children’s Broadcast Institute Award and the Crystal Award for Outstanding Achievement in Film and Television.


I write about home. In the blocks-and-mortar sense, yes. But I also write about the villages, towns, cities and homelands we call “home” and our relationships with them.  I’ve been doing so for decades, no matter what job I was in at the time.

 A Good Home, now a bestseller, was written over many years. The story begins in a tiny, magical, pink farmhouse in the Jamaican countryside and ends in another farmhouse — this one, a sprawling, historic place near Toronto, Canada with many stories of its own.

An Honest House  is an intimate look at a family dealing with some hard truths after a life-changing event. Despite those realities, this book is also about a family determined to express love, find courage, celebrate their blessings,  and laugh.

An Honest House  has been critically praised and won the 2016 Diamond Award for Book of the Year. (I was shocked by that — it was a difficult book to write.)

I’m thankful to the many readers who write to me – marvelous, moving letters about my books’ or blog’s impact on their lives.  I reply to every letter!

On this blog you’ll find posts that vary in topics from the serious to the ridiculous. This blog, and my blogging community, have been a cherished part of my life in recent years. You’re welcome to join us.

THANK YOU for visiting.

  3. I wanted to stop by and thank you for visiting my blog. I happened upon a post of yours where you go to lunch with friends who all share chronic pain in common. This is a subject that I know next to nothing about, although my boyfriend (who I live with) has the problem. I’m going to keep hanging around and see if I can gain some insights. Anything to help relieve the stress of it at this point. My best, Rose
