About the Author

“I’m telling mom!” As a child, that became my mantra as I cried at her feet trying to recount why my tears flowed. I found unless a situation could be remedied by me I’d weep- again. I wrote diaries about being the ‘middlest’ child. My first nom de plume could have been Cry Baby; mom nicknamed me Cinder Ella. Was she insinuating that my siblings might not be related to me or that I was worthy of Prince Charming? My latest release is a children’s book called Just ME; as a middle child, the main character daydreams of being someone special; she’s wishing her life away! Meanwhile, God led me to my first published book at thirty-three; my tale makes people cry with me until they spot miracles in my book- Mom’s on the Roof.... Before I wrote about ‘life after death,’ Christian based NDEs, etc.- I was a ‘computer system analyst’ college major. It makes sense that my first book was non-fiction; some call it fantasy. Now, that that’s out of the way, when I write non-fiction telling the whole truth, I use my name or Cynthia Meyers-Hanson. If I embellish, take poetic license, and tell my side of- I mean the main character’s side of- a story I use my pen name or Sydney S. Song.

More About the Author

I work for GOD! I write many nonfiction books that are really just scribing the history of HIS Stories. My tales are Christian based; at least one of those books points directly to HEAVEN. I explain how bad situations and good ones have the potential to bring hope and love along with stronger faith.

My favorite question during book interviews is: How did you get started writing? The short answer is that in 1991 my mother died. Some people dream of being authors; my writing began as what could be described as a nightmare! HOWEVER- as she died, mom experienced what would be called a Christian Near Death Experience (NDE) or miracle. My witness became Mom's on the Roof and I can't Get Her Down. After that, I have co-authored or compiled other Divine and inspirational tales; they range from faith healing to other Near Death journeys. To date, my Christian books total seven. Meanwhile, I have ghostwritten novels including The Vision, which is based on a true story of overcoming blindness, bipolar dysfunction, and living 'The Golden Rule.' Also, I've produced four picture books for and with children. Finally, I wrote one historical, YA Novelette. I use my real name, Cynthia Meyers-Hanson on non-fictions as well as the children's literature; my pen name, Sydney S. Song is reserved for my fibs or novels. You can find out more about my writing on my author webpage, which is @ http://mchanson714.weebly.com/ . You can follow my author blog indexed there, too.

I was first drawn to Mom's on the Roof and I Can't Get Her Down as it touched on a subject personal to me. An NDE - near death experience. Soon, however, I found myself experiencing an honest and frank look into a family trauma. Cynthia held nothing back when it came to her feelings during her mother's terminal illness and her father's reaction and tragic action. In this work of Non-Fiction, the author has lifted the fog that hides the turmoil within families when faced with the tragedy of disease - both of body and mind. And she allows the reader a peek into the different ways family members react to the same situation. As for Cynthia, I found her most brave in revealing her inner thoughts.

When I bought this book, I had no idea what the title meant. Once I began to read, I couldn't look away. Hanson began the story with the end and proceeded to take me to the beginning of a story that appears to be true. Knowing that nonfiction has to seem realistic, the author's journey was surreal in its unpretentious delivery of a kind of hell no one would wish for, made it true, for me. Anyone in the center of an arena where witnessing the death of a loved one with a vicious disease will feel less alone, for one thing. And, for another thing, they will understand how possible it is to believe that no one truly dies. As I read the day to day goings on in the daughter's life while in the throes of working full time, raising 3 children and watching a mother so loved, dying so slowly, I felt the exhaustion, fear, and hope all at once. A well written honest account written in plain English gave me a candid view of an experience I've never had. Mostly this book taught me that there is a way to give bad news. I felt like giving the writer a hug.

I stayed up late last night to finish Cindy Meyers-Hanson's book, MOM'S ON THE ROOF...AND I CAN'T GET HER DOWN! With this book I shared Cindy's journey of faith, love, loss, and strength! Her story tugged at my heart, made me feel her fears and pain, but it also allowed me to smile at the way she handled certain situations. Throughout the burden of losing her Mom, and soon afterward losing her Father, then dealing with a dose of fear regarding her own health -- she remained a loving daughter, wife, sister, niece, and friend. I applaud Cindy for writing this book. It was a loving tribute to her Mom, and an inspiration to those of us that have gone through the same trials. Well done, Cindy!
