Cassandra was a closet writer for several years before she got brave enough to share her work with anyone until she joined Eyre Writers Inc, a creative writing group in the seaside town of Port Lincoln and really began to improve.
Her first book was a 100,000 words family saga novel, but after a workshop on 'How to write a Mills and Boon', she embarked on a new direction—writing the romance novel.
After being made redundant from the job she loved in 2011 she became a carer for her frail, vision-impaired mother and turned to fulfilling her dream of becoming a writer.
When Cassandra's not writing she enjoys spending time with family and friends, especially her mother, and her three wonderful adult children and two adorable grandchildren.
She also enjoys egg decorating and carving, reading of course, painting and cooking.

Cassandra Hawke - Author Spotlight
This story is set in Australia, do you enjoy setting stories in places that you know and love?
I do enjoy setting my stories in places I know and love. I could do a lot of research but I really like it when I can visualize the place, recall the sights, scents, sounds or even the feel of the wind on my face. Plus it gives me satisfaction to be able to share the landscape with the readers, but the unique lifestyle and characters that make Australians who they are.
