Cassandra Morgan (CP Morgan) is an award-winning author, writing coach, and speaker residing in NW Ohio.
She was raised in a town so small, it was technically a village at the time, where she spent her childhood running through the woods behind her house and reading as many books as she could.
Cassie hails from a family of writers, authors, English majors, and journalists, so it was no surprise when she wrote her first episodic series at the age of eight, and her first chapter book at the age of ten. She read the entire Teen section at her local library in a single summer and quickly moved on to larger tomes.
Taking inspiration from authors such as Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, McCaffrey, Rice, movies like The Last Unicorn, The Neverending Story, and Willow, and an insatiable interest in mythology and folklore from around the world, she wrote her first fantasy novel with extensive world-building and a large cast of characters at twelve years old.
Cassandra is a frequent guest at conferences and conventions, speaking on topics of writing, publishing, and marketing. She has had the honor of sitting on panels with Nebula and Hugo Award-Winning Authors, Mary Robinette Kowal & Amal El-Mohtar, Hugo Award-Winning Author, Jim C. Hines, and Multi-Award Winning and Nominated Author, Mary Ann Mohanraj, among many others.
Before transitioning to a career in writing and publishing, Cassandra worked various positions in animal husbandry. She now uses her knowledge and certifications volunteering with various animal rescues across the USA, taking on medical and emotional rehabilitation cases.
