Professional Writing, Personal Touch
Founder, Cindy Childress, Ph. D.
Dr. Cindy is an author, speaker, and content specialist. She started Childress Communication because she saw business owners struggling to write consistently and write well for their businesses. She also saw an opportunity for qualified, professional writers to use their skills in the professional services sector, instead of being relegated to technical writing or freelancers.
Every day she challenges herself and her team to make sure their clients aren't just happy that the work is done on time, but rather they are stunned that their ideas sound so amazing.
Her system for completing ghost writing and book editing projects was developed in academia and adapted for business. This includes fast turn-around times, guaranteed finished products, and an editing process that bring your writing to near-perfection.
She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Western Kentucky University, where she studied Writing and Communication. Her M.A. in English is from the University of South Florida. She attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and completed an English generalist Ph. D. with a creative dissertation.
She is an accomplished poet and writer and teach creative writing workshops with Writespace. She and her husband were Celebrity Paws Honorees with Citizens for Animal Protection in 2016, and they regularly foster needy dogs and cats.
