Brief Bio:

Living in a small mountain village east of San Diego, California, Cassandra writes in the dead of night while her husband and four kinda-teenagers (ages 13-21), along with most normal people, sleep. With homeschooling three boys, teaching online classes and writing curriculum for homeschoolers, teaching co-op writing classes, and battling autoimmune issues that leave her walking with a cane on good days and getting about in a wheelchair on less-than-ideal days, Cassandra is a busy woman who finds relaxation and distraction from chronic pain in writing. She has completed two book-length fan fiction novels, Evening Star and Pinned but Fluttering, and hopes that Camp NaNoWriMo July 2013 will allow her to make significant progress on her third book-length fan fiction, Only by Moonlight, and perhaps progress with several short stories that have been started but never completed.
