Davidson Realty’s Cindy Vaughn Becomes an Award-Winning Author

July 23, 2015

Posted by in News, Staff

Davidson staffer Cindy Vaughn wears many hats—Accounting Manager, HR Manager—but a hat many people might not know she wears is as Author.

In fact, Cindy, who has been with Davidson Realty for more than 16 years, was recently awarded first place in the Wordhaus Fiction Writing Contest! Cindy’s story, “Dirty Little Secret,” won in the Thriller category. She was kind enough to answer a few questions about her writing.

Tell us a bit about your experiences as a writer. I have always loved to write. I have one poem published called “Solitaire.” It was published in the “National Anthology of Poetry.” I wrote a children’s book called “Pimple the Pelican” for my grandson and self-published that. My dream is to get my novel published. I am now in the revision process of it. I finished it about a year ago and pitched it to ten agents. I was so excited when I received a response from Sue Grafton’s agent requesting to read my full manuscript. After five days of nail-biting suspense, she told me she couldn’t connect with my main character. She gave me some great advice though, and I have heeded it. Hopefully, with this revision, I will be able to find an agent and get my book published. It is called “Death’s Whisper.” Read more

In fact, her voice was recently featured on a segment of WJCT’s Closing The Loop, a program that presents personal stories from people throughout the First Coast.

In her interview, she opens up about her journey and discusses one of her many talents—helping people. She says, “When people are talking to me, I really listen to what they’re saying, to find out what their need is and if I can help them. I have the heart of a servant.” Read more
