Cassandra doesn't remember a time when she wasn't writing. In fact, the first time she was published was when she was seven years old and won a contest to be published in an American Girl Doll novel. Since then Cassandra has written more novels than she can count and put just as many in the circular bin. Her personal goal with her writing is to show the reader the character's stories through their dialogue and actions instead of just telling the reader what is happening. Besides being a writer, Cassandra is a professional photographer known for her automotive, nature and architectural shots. She is happily married to the man of her dreams and they live in the rolling hills of New England with their daughter and two dogs.

LE was originally written as a stand alone, and I played around with the idea of sequel from Evan's POV starting off where LE ended, but my publisher and I decided there wasn't much left of that story to tell. I didn't want to put the characters through the ringer for the sake of a second book, either, so no, there is no sequel planned at this time. If you're wondering...she says yes ;-) thank you for your support!(less)

“Your voice has haunted every inch of my soul since the last time I heard it…my world had been so dark, void of sound and then I heard you sing again—and it exploded. Everything came crashing down on me that I’d been holding in, and then I was just a mess. But I wasn’t suffering in silence anymore. I was suffering from the impenetrable sound of your voice on repeat in my head.”
Cassandra Giovanni, Finding Perfection

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words...they'll destroy my soul.”
Cassandra Giovanni, Love Exactly

“I loved him desperately, completely, and he wasn’t threatening to consume me anymore. He already had. Everything that was me was him. My heart, mind and soul all were as much a part of him as they were me.”
Cassandra Giovanni, Flawed Perfection

“Life, a beauty chased by tragic laughter.”
John Masefield, King Cole

“He felt that there is a loose balance of good and evil, and that the art of living consists in getting the greatest good out of the greatest evil.”
Machado de Assis, Iaiá Garcia

“To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation.”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

“Seconds seem like a life time when the life you lived is slowly drained out of you by those who care not what you felt, hoped, or dreamed. When the darkness comes it is all consuming, there is no light and there is no pain. It is the never ending loss of hope that now consumes me as I die in his arms.”
Cassandra Giovanni, Walking in the Shadows

“You’re going to castrate them if they give me a sideways glance?”
He looked at the ground. “I’m not bringing you to the safest place and you’re beautiful, so I needed to warn them.”
“I’m beautiful?” I repeated trying not to smile.
“Don’t let it go to your head, darling.” He said holding his hand out for me.
“You’re not too bad yourself.”
“I know. I saw the way you stared at me when I took my shirt off.” Hunter said.”
Cassandra Giovanni, In Between Seasons
