I’m Cas, and I love storytelling! I’m incredibly passionate about writing, art, and anything that allows me to create my own worlds. My goal is to write dreamy fiction for all ages that is unique, inspiring, and imaginative. I want my books to instill wonderment in the reader. I like to write about themes that include coming of age, magic realism, identity, relationships, and bullying. My books are intended for readers ages eight to twenty-five, and are meant to connect the world of the fantastical to everyday life.

I currently live in Colorado and just got my MA in Publishing!

My brain constantly surprises me, taking bits of inspiration from here or there until there is an entire person I've never met before but is vaguely familiar. I also love teaching lessons and I think that is the most important aspect for me, which is why I'm choosing to write primarily Middle Grade and Young Adult. Books helped me find myself and embrace who I was, and I want to do the same for others!(less)

Braidy von Althuis and the Pesky Pest Controller - An Excerpt

Kara had her eyes glued to the granite countertop, afraid to look anywhere else. Braidy saw her lip trembling and placed a hand onto her shoulder. He said, “It’s okay to be afraid. My dad is spooky looking, but he’s good. I promise.”

“Okay,” Kara muttered, “go ahead, I guess.”

“Excellent.” The kettle screeched out in defiance and Mr. von Althuis stood to pull it from the stove. He poured the right a Read more of this blog post »
