About The Author
A&RBC: How did you become a writer?
Cassietta: I’ve always been an avid reader, but as I got older, I wanted to read something a little different. I figured that if was looking for something different then perhaps others were too. So I started writing what I wanted to read.
A&RBC: Where does your inspiration for your characters come from?
Cassietta: My character inspiration comes from my friends and family. I have seven brother’s and three sisters who I think are awesome and completely fascinating people. My characters are a combination of my siblings, my in-laws, who are also fabulous, and some really good friends that I’ve met along my life’s journey.
A&RBC: What are you hoping readers take from your book?
Cassietta: I hope that readers will get that no matter the circumstances, there’s always hope. I hope they will take from my book that real love is possible and that it starts with the love of Jesus, which is the underlying message.
A&RBC: If you were to write a book about a controversial topic, what would it be?
Cassietta: If I could select a controversial topic to write about, I would probably chose sexual assault. More specifically, the stigma the stigma associated with women who fall victim to sexual assault and the misguided belief that it’s somehow their fault.
A&RBC: What is your favorite genre of books?
Cassietta: I don’t know that I have a single favorite genre, I have very eclectic tastes. My absolute favorite combination is a novel that contains romance, intrigue, and a Christian message.
A&RBC: Are you an avid or occasional reader?
Cassietta: I’ve been really busy lately so I haven’t had an opportunity to read as much as I have liked, but I still consider myself an avid reader.
A&RBC: If you could interview one of your favorite authors, who would it be? Why?
A&RBC: If you could make a movie out of one of your books, which one would it be?
Cassietta: I would definitely pick Be Still & Know. I really enjoyed writing Alvin and Kai’s love story and would really love to see it on the big screen.
A&RBC: What new projects are you working on?
Cassietta: I’m currently working on Hidden, which is the follow up to Be Still & Know. I’m preparing for a Spring 2013 release and looking forward to seeing how my readers will respond.
