Meet Cassandra

Cassandra lives on a small farm well-furnished with creeks and rainforest in the tropics of Queensland, Australia. When she’s not writing, she’s caring for a veritable ark full of pets that include cats, dogs, horses, chickens, ducks, geese, and birds – some of which were rescues.

She enjoys gardening when it’s cool enough (which is rare in the tropics), and loves reading and artistic pursuits such as drawing and painting in different styles. Watching TV is always a good way to pass down-time; her favourite shows include The Black List, Big Bang Theory, The Umbrella Academy, Lucifer, The Vampire Diaries, Hemlock Grove and Longmire.

When it comes to supernatural heroes, she prefers Damon Salvatore over Stefan Salvatore, but only because who doesn’t love a bad boy? Neither, however, hold a candle to Eric Northman.
