Story of Cynthia Dougherty Bernal

Cynthia Dougherty Bernal is a bilingual poet and writer whose professional career started with her first book, Bleeding on the Page: My Soul Exposed. She expanded her writing style by immersing herself in the writing and author world through various groups, pages, and connections in person and online. Cynthia began writing to express her introverted nature, and when the words stuck in her throat they flowed on the page. After taking that first leap into the publishing world in 2016, she has continuously pushed herself to expand and cultivate her writing style. She has since gotten more involved in her hometown with organizations such as Laredo Border Slam Poetry and participated in the Laredo Book Festival. The next step in her journey is underway and new projects will be promoted and revealed here.
