Although Cassandra primarily writes speculative fiction, she also sometimes writes poetry, essays, and reviews. Updates forthcoming about novels, but a select list of other projects appears below.
I’m thrilled to share that my twin sister Rebecca and I are teaming up to use her illustration skills and my book-making skills to release editions of our favorite children’s books in the Charlotte Mason curriculum used by many homeschooling families around the world. We’ve been dreaming about doing something like this for ages, so it’s exciting to finally make it a reality.
Our first project is The Little Duke, a middle grade historical novel inspired by real events in the life of the 10th-century Duke of Normany, Richard the Fearless. This was first written as a serial novel in 1851 by pioneering educator and prolific British author Charlotte M. Yonge. It’s one of our favorite children’s classics, and our work on it is already well underway. We’re aiming to release it in September 2020. Click here for more details.
