About

**NOTE: I am sorry, but at this time my health and my overextended schedule prevent me from reading and offering feedback on stories. If you would like some writing help, please see Advice to Young Writers under My Works. Thanks. :)

I'm Cassandra. :) Married since 1985, we have 4 terrific young people: a daughter (22), and 3 boybarians (14, 16, 19); we've been educating our kids at home since 1996. I'm a Christian, attending both a community church and an Anglican (Church of England) parish. We live in a small mountain village east of San Diego, California.

I love writing and reading, especially the classics. I have a Master's degree in English (Medieval Lit), and I write poetry, fiction, fan fiction, & I blog, too. I'm a former university English professor, and I currently teach writing, grammar, literary analysis, Shakespeare, & poetry classes both online and in the classroom. Also a freelance editor, I've edited several books including a new Book of Common Prayer. 

I've been diagnosed with several autoimmune illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, etc. I deal with chronic pain 24/7 despite powerful pain meds. On good days I walk with a cane; on bad days I have to use a wheelchair. Thankfully, writing usually distracts me from the pain. 

And I'm a devoted Downton Abbey fan!

Favorite writers: Chaucer, Shakespeare, Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Elizabeth Gaskell, L.M. Montgomery, Anne Lamott, Victoria Thompson, Anne Perry, Kathleen Norris, Anne Tyler, PD James

Favorite musicians: U2!!! Love my Dublin boys! Also Florence + the Machine, Editors, Mumford & Sons, Lumineers, and Steam Powered Giraffe. I often write to Big Band/Swing music.

@robyntyler00 I've been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, adrenal fatigue, and thyroid insufficiency. Basically I deal with chronic pain from the base of my skull down to my feet and inability to sleep much/well, so I'm always exhausted.

Thanks for your kind words, Robyn. Right now I'm being slammed by the classes I teach and a bad flare-up of my autoimmune illnesses, so writing isn't happening right now. We'll see in a bit if I can get going again. Typing is painful, so I need to type just for the online classes I teach. And neither of my speech-to-text programs are working. :( I miss writing desperately, so I hope to be back soon. xxxooo
