Cindy Nelson Bring gravitated toward military intrigue and suspense with family members serving in the Army, Navy and Air Force and a mother who reads nothing but mysteries.
Cindy was born to Frances and Arthur Nelson and grew up in Helena, Montana. Her father Arthur was an E-4 Specialist who served in the United States Army. After serving he then went to work as an editor for Helena, Montana’s newspaper The Independent Record. Her mother was a homemaker.
Cindy married a logger, Glen Bring, in 1981. They raised four children and now have four grandchildren. Bring spent several years as a Motocross mom and is a big Green Bay Packers fan. She was a homemaker until the children were in High School and then she was a Dispatcher for the local PD and also worked in Central Sterile in the local Hospital’s O.R. In 1998 she went back to school and received an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Investigation as well as hand gun training. When Bring is not writing she is visiting children and grandchildren which has taken her to various Army Bases around the world and across the US.
