**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 (21), and 3 boybarians (14, 16, 18); 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.
