Cindy Jacks visits Romancing the Pen

June 15TH, Cindy Jacks drops by Romancing the Pen to discuss her new release All The Good Men.


Dahlia is sure the hackneyed platitude is true: After a certain age, all the good men are married or gay. She feels her thirty-eight years put her well past that 'certain age.' Her best friend and her sisters dare her to put her fate where her mouth is. The terms of the challenge? During the month of October, she has to end her five-year-long man fast and go on dates with men of their choosing. Oh, and she also has to go out with anyone else who asks.

As the date disasters pile up, the vindication almost makes the torturous evenings bearable for Dahlia. But a handsome new neighbor, Jackson Carmichael, moves in, changing the rules of the game. Retired after twenty-six years as a pro firefighter in Boston, he volunteers with the local fire department, coaches a youth hockey team, and appears for all the world to be the perfect man. He just might throw a wrench into Dahlia's plan to die lonely and single...that is if she doesn't scare him away first.

Breast Cancer Walk in D.C.

I don't know how many people participated in the June 5Th Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk, but it was amazing. Ambassador G. Brinker, and Dr. Jill Biden spoke. It felt like a privilege to be a part of something so much bigger than myself.

In honor of my grandmother, and with my friends (breast cancer survivers), for an hour and a half at the pace of a very fast turtle, with the occasional trip over the person in front or beside me, my friends and I finished the walk. Hot and tired, but we finished.
