Tell us a bit about yourself

Hey, y’all! My name is Cassie and I’m a full-time author and a reality TV junkie. When I’m not writing, I’m usually acting as professional servant to my dog, a three-year-old Great Pyrenees with serious attitude. (I swear, you’ve never heard a dog huff more than mine.)

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve known I wanted to write romance since the day I picked up my first romance novel. It was a Harlequin novel in my great-grandmother’s upstairs bedroom and I was absolutely not old enough to be reading it. But then I picked up another… and another… and well, I never put them down. I knew there was nothing I loved more than books, and nothing I wanted to write more than romance. I still have a handwritten copy of the first novel I wrote—a young adult romance so cringe worthy I hope it never sees the light of day!

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Confession: I have a serious fear of a world where humans are overthrown by artificial technology. Yeah, I’m scared of robots, y’all. That means I spend much more time obsessing over them than I probably should, which is how my good friend and co-writer, Christine, and I started the discussion that led us to the idea that became The Thorns of Rosewood series. And yes, I do realize how bizarre it is that I chose an android for a main character—but I’m all about facing my fears!

°

What are you working on now?

I’m working on two projects right now. The Proxy, book two in The Thorns of Rosewood series, which I’m working on with a co-writer. Also, Saviors, which is the fourth and last book in my Pawns of Patience series.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Mumbling aloud. Sometimes, when I’m trying to get a line of dialogue just right, I’ll sort of say it under my breath the way I think my character would say it, just to see what needs to be tweaked. And yes, sometimes I do (very bad) accents.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

More books! There might even be a little something supernatural in the works…

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Do the work! Before I was a writer, I spent some time working in the film industry, and the one thing that has always held true is that one thing sets apart some dreamers from others. Their willingness to work. It isn’t always easy but if it’s really what you love it is so, so worth it.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you. Thanks you times a million. I love writing books, and I love even more that I get to share them with all of you.
