Cyndi Marko, a woman with long dark hair, standing in front of foliage, wearing a knit hat.

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

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 spent most of her time as a kid drawing pictures, reading books, and making up stories. Not much has changed, except Cyndi’s mom makes her buy her own crayons now (well, most of the time, anyway. Thanks, Mom!)


Cyndi currently lives within hopping distance of (monster infested) Okanagan Lake in British Columbia, Canada with her quiet kids and noisy cats.

Cyndi doesn't have a lot of spare time, but when she can she enjoys cooking, fabric crafts, watching spooky movies, and traveling with her partner, author-illustrator Troy Cummings.
