Cassandra Morgan

Author

 

Cassandra Morgan is an author, writing mentor and speaker residing in NW Ohio.

She has published works in two series, including The Kingdoms of Chartile (YA Epic Fantasy) and The Silver Fox Mysteries (Magical Cozy Mystery), and her short story The Witch of Eisenwald Forest was recently published in the Dreams of Darkness anthology by Dragon Storm Press.

She has traveled throughout the Midwest USA speaking at conferences and conventions about writing, publishing and marketing, and has had the pleasure of working with Mary Robinette Kowal, Amal El-Mohtar, Mary Ann Mohanraj, Jim Hines, and Ella Barnard of Author Like a Boss.

When she’s not rescuing orphan kittens or doing voice acting for villainous purple mermaids, Cassandra can be found creating worlds of magic, suspense and friendship.

A lover of doughnuts and a self-proclaimed Coffee Connoisseur, Cassandra Morgan hails from a family of writers, authors and journalists. Writing is literally in her German-English-Belgian blood (though we’re not sure which one to blame).

She lives in NW Ohio with her hubby, five fabulous felines, and any number of foster kittens.
