She started writing when she was 15—staying up all night to finish a poem for a writing contest. Three months later she found herself in Washington D.C. reading it to a roomful of other poets. While she did not win that contest it did push her to keep writing. She found an outlet in writing for her creative side that could not be expressed in other ways. Her writing outlets have been poetry, role-playing sites, and has even tried her hand at fan fiction—quickly filling many journals with story ideas. She is currently working on a couple of novels, one young adult and one sci-fi. She continues to write poetry and short stories.
Cassandra now lives in Texas where she loves going to the lake to write or take pictures. Her home is shared with her mother who is also her best friend and their cat. She enjoys going to Sci-Fi conventions with her mom, watching sports (go OU!), and working a normal job (until this writing thing takes off). While she is happy being single; she hasn't stopped looking for the right girl to share her life with. She loves baking and cooking and thinks there is no better feeling then working hard on something and having people revel in eating her creations. She can also be found on her patio trying to capture the sunrise or sunset with oil paints.
