Profile Information

Cindy Wathen holds a doctorate of law. Her publishing credits include REMEMBERING CESAR: THE LEGACY OF CESAR CHAVEZ, the first book to be endorsed by the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation and the winner of the Valley Independent Publishers’ first-ever gold medal award in the history category.

Contributors include Paul Chavez, Coretta Scott King, Edward James Olmos, Martin Sheen, Esteban Torres, and Paul Schrade.

In the promotion of this book, she has given signings at Cody’s, the Oakland Museum of California, The Delancey Street Foundation, Barnes and Noble, Borders, the Stockton Public Library, the Hanford Public Library, the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, and the annual UFW convention.

She has worked as a Writer's Digest online instructor, KMPH Fox TV Community Correspondent book reviewer, and Yosemite Writers Conference director. Previously, she has worked as an acquisitions coordinator for McGraw-Hill and senior editor and publicist for Quill Driver Books. Most recently, she was employed as assistant acquisitions editor and art researcher for The University of California Press, where she helped develop the California Natural History Guide program, the New California Poetry series, and the Mark Twain Papers. She also helped develop the Bookmark program–a group formed in 2001, which attracted young professionals, new readers, and future supporters to the Press through a series of promotional events, including a book-signing at The Commonwealth Club supporting "The Literature of California" hosted by Maxine Hong Kingston, James D. Houston, Al Young, and Jack Hicks.

Recently, she spoke at the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference and Heyday Books's first annual Great Valley Books Writers' Conference. She's also been a contributing writer for Fresno Magazine, Visalia Lifestyle, and The Noveltown Review, and has worked for television station KMPH channel 26, radio station KFSR 90.7, Pollstar magazine, The Writers' Collective, REFINE Magazine, and California State University Fresno’s Henry Madden Library.
