Cindy K. Sproles is an author and a speaker, whose dream is to do nothing more than craft words that speak from the heart. God's plan seems to be for her to write and teach the craft.  With God’s guidance, Cindy is expanding her horizons. We'll see how He uses her.

Cindy is a mountain gal. Proud of her heritage, she was born and raised in the Appalachian Mountains where life is simple, words have a deep southern drawl, and colloquialisms like, "well slap my knee and call me corn pone" seem to take precedence over proper speech. Apple Butter, coal mining, the river, pink sunrises, and golden sunsets help you settle into a porch swing and relax. Family, the love of God, and strong morals are embedded into her life in the mountains. Teaching writers, spinning fiction tales about life in the mountains, history, and down-home ideas find their way into all she does. “I love to write devotions, to seek after the deeper side of Christ, and to share the lessons He teaches me from life in the hills of East Tennessee. I am a writer. A speaker. A lover of God's Word and friend to all.” This is Cindy Sproles. Welcome home to the mountains.

Two on the Way

2/26/2022 7:00:00 PM BY Cindy Sproles


TWO WHAT? You say.

TWO NEW BOOKS! And I am so excited. It’s been a long wait but the contracts have finally worked their way around. So, releasing in 2023 will be the next in the Appalachian Life Novels:

This is Where It Ends – You’ll meet Minerva Jane Jenkins, a 94-year-old spitfire from Shoal Mountain, Kentucky. Minerva lost her husband, Stately Jenkins, forty years earlier leaving her alone and nearly blind to fend for herself on the mountain. As he lay dying, he asked Minerva, “Keep the secret. Promise me you’ll keep the secret.” And she begrudgingly did. Like any good mountain woman in the late 1800s, when you make a promise – it’s your word. The question for Minerva is, how long do you keep a secret? Even if it’s detrimental? Even if the person who asked you to keep it is dead. 

You’ll love this sweet, gutsy old woman but more so, you’ll admire her integrity. This is Where It Ends releases in June of 2023.


Meet Me Where I Am, Lord – 90 Days to Know Him Better – As an acquisitions editor, I attended conferences for three years asking for someone to write a devotional that wasn’t fluffy, didn’t try to cram God into a hobby, and wasn’t shallow. I wanted to dig deeper. It didn’t have to be waist deep, just ankle deep. I wanted something that would give me a little history, a new perspective, and something to chew on after I finished it. As I talked to a publisher about this and just how frustrated I was that no one seemed to want a contract. If I could get a good one, like I wanted, it would come with a contract. Nothin’. I heard crickets chirping in the background. UNTIL, the publisher said, “Why don’t you write it?” I suppose I looked somewhat dumbfounded, but after praying over that request, I took them up on the challenge. My prayer was simple, Lord, I’ll be the pen. Use this to Your glory. Almost a year later, the manuscript is finished. Meet Me Where I Am, Lord will release around Easter 2023. It goes just “under the surface” deeper, but it challenges you with a new perspective – something to think over.

I am blessed and excited to pieces to not only continue in fiction, a genre I love, but to be able to return to my roots of devotional writing. I would ask that you add these releases to your prayers – not on my behalf, but that God will use them to the fullest to bring glory to Himself.  Hey, I just wanna write and I want the glory to be His.
