Cynthia Attar became a mule trainer first, and then realized the vast need for a good and thorough book on mules. This book would help people understand mules and not feel it necessary to harm them when training them. There wasn't such a book in print, so Cynthia learned to be a writer. As a natural teacher of both mules and people, Cynthia understood the importance of providing knowledge and understanding on why the mule does what he does in order to be able to create a mule partner. As in her personality, Cynthia writes in a down to earth style. Cynthia currently lives with Sally the WonderMule, Satchmo the Jazzy Donk, and other critters in amongst nature in rural SW Washington.
