Pink Pantie Confessions Summary

Pink Pantie Confessions is an intimate anthology from the creative mind of actor/singer Cynda Williams detailing the struggles, insights, and triumphs of her life and career including perspectives from her inner circle of friends. This inspiring account of Hollywood, life, and love includes the reader as a confidant and friend to encourage, uplift, and commiserate by sharing life lessons as a journey and road map to a better version of self.

I have been a reader and writer since childhood. Books have often been my best friends. One of my goals was to write my own. I never knew what sort of book I’d write; a novel, self-help or poetry. After a very full life of many challenges I decided to write a book of memoirs, poetry and insights – P.P.C. aka “Pink Pantie Confessions.” I believe ‘confessions’ are good for mental and spiritual health. For years I kept my mouth shut and all my pain filled me up until it spilled out almost destroying me. I am trying to encourage others (especially women) to share their stories not for the purpose of dwelling in dark places but for release. My book has confessions from several other women.” — Cynda Williams; Rolling Out Magazine
