Cyndi Marko writes and draws books for kids, but she doesn't mind if adults read them, too.

Cyndi is the author and illustrator of the KUNG POW CHICKEN early chapter book series (Scholastic 2014), THIS LITTLE PIGGY: AN OWNER'S MANUAL (Aladdin 2017) & BOO! HISS! (Aladdin TBA), the SLOTH SLEUTH middle grade graphic novel series (ETCH Jun 2022), and the upcoming picture book GILLY AND THE MONSTER OF MUSTACHE BAY (S&S BFYR Jun 2023).

Cyndi was born in Smithers, BC, Canada. She has fond childhood memories of itchy sweaters, frostbite, and tunneling through deep snow to get to school.

Cyndi currently lives in British Columbia, Canada with her two noisy, freeloading roommates Cathulhu and Salem P. Cat.
