Cassandra L Shaw
Previously in life I've gained a Degree in Environmental Management, worked in offices in a multitude of positions, studied fashion design, run my own business and spent nearly nineteen years caring for orphaned and injured wildlife.
These days, I work from home honing my writing skills. I share my life with my husband, our two children and a menagerie of animals on our hobby farm in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast in beautiful Queensland Australia. When not writing, I can be found drawing, sculpting, gardening and taking my children to their multitude of dance, guitar & tennis lessons.
What do I read? Well that a bit of a rollercoaster ride. Depends on the mood, the week, what I have available. I've read and read many genre's. Romance, mysteries, biographies, sci-fi, fantasy, space opera, time travel, suspense, epics, paranormals and I even squeeze in a little historical and regency when the fancy takes hold.
Favourite Novel of all time? "Gone with the Wind." Why? Have you read it?
Currently I would say my favourite authors are J.R. Ward, Nalini Singh, Brenda Novak and Sherrilyn Kenyon, Janet Evanovich, Darynda Jones, Karen Marie Moning, Anna Campbell, etc. etc etc. etc. .
My goals are to get that first manuscript published, then my second, third, fourth...................ninety-ninth. You get the picture.
Favourite thing I like to do? Laugh so hard tears run down my face.
