I am a book addict is happy to have Carol Cassanda stop by today

·         Please tell us a little about yourself.

I live in Virginia with my mom, younger brother, three dogs, and two cats. I’ve been writing professionally for about 5 years. My love of writing began in high school and that’s when I decided to pursue a career as a writer. During my short time writing, I’ve released 5 books, 4 of which are part of a series. I’ve experienced ups and downs throughout my writing career, but looking back at it I wouldn’t trade it for anything.


·         What is one thing about you that your readers would find surprising or never guess about you?

From my picture, people assume I’m a nice person and I really am. I’ll help anybody out in a minute. But like all people I can get upset easily, one thing that pisses me off is when somebody messes with me or my family. If they hurt someone I love, then they better watch out because they’re going to get an earful.


·         Tell us a little about your latest book?

Going Home Again revolves around Rachel Mitchell; she works as a photographer in New York. She’s happy with her life and following her dreams, but her mother’s death sends her home to Virginia. While she’s home she meets her ex-boyfriend Cole and they become closer. The trip makes Rachel think about the importance of family and it also makes her question changes she needs to make to her life.

·         What’s one thing that you enjoy most about writing? Least?

One thing I enjoy about writing is using my imagination and thinking of new stories. My least favorite thing is editing, that can sometimes be a pain in the butt.

·         How would you describe your writing process?

I’m the type of person who just goes with the flow, if I think of an idea I’ll run with it. I’ll write down the characters and story ideas in a notebook so I won’t forget them, but as far as plotting the whole book on paper I don’t do that. I just let the scenes come to me as I’m writing.


·         Who is one your favorite authors that you enjoy reading?

I don’t really have a favorite author, but I do enjoy reading the Ghost of Virginia series by L.B. Taylor Jr.

·         What are you currently working on?

Currently, I’m working on the 5th volume in the Westmore series, which is a romance/soap opera literary saga. I’m planning to release it this year. I’m also working on a paranormal romance involving vampires, plus I’ve got a notebook full of ideas that I eventually want to get to.


·         Do you have anything due to release soon?

If all goes according to plan, I’m hoping to release Westmore volume 5 in March.
