Cynthia Simmelink Becker was passionate about history, especially when it came to writing biographies of those whom history has often overlooked. Among the books she wrote were two about Chipeta, an influential Southern Ute woman. Ike Hoover’s overlooked story also lent itself well to Cynthia’s interests and her research and storytelling skills.

Cynthia made her home in Pueblo, Colorado, with her husband, David. She passed away in 2016, leaving Lights On! in the care of her husband, her writers’ group, and Filter Press.
