Lewis and Nicholas Stuart Gray over and over again — and writing her own stories as soon as she could hold a pen. Her first book, Michael and the Secret War, was accepted for publication when she was nineteen years old and she is proud to have been “discovered” by the incomparable Jennifer Rowe (also known as Emily Rodda) who was her very first editor and mentor.

Cassandra and 5 other people liked Mike's review of Summer of Monsters:
Summer of Monsters by Tony Thompson
"Summer of Monsters is an enjoyable book that sits somewhere between historical fiction and social history. Add a big slice of literary history served by a witty guide and it adds to a rollicking but smart read. It's not a big surprise that the aut..." Read more of this review »

“That is not what I meant. Of course you belong here, because you have offered me your friendship, and friends always belong together. But friends look out for each other's welfare, and I am concerned for yours. I wish only to protect you."

"It is I who must protect you!" she exclaimed, although she did not understand why she felt this so strongly. "You need protecting. I can look after myself."

"None of us can look after ourselves," he said after a moment. "We all have to look after each other.”
Cassandra Golds, The Museum of Mary Child

“For love was a kind of folly, a losing game. The greatest of all Wastes of Time. But then, that depended on what you thought time was for.”
Cassandra Golds, The Museum of Mary Child

“I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.”
Vincent van Gogh

“To love someone means to see them as God intended them.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

“Believing in God is as much like falling in love as it is making a decision. Love is both something that happens to you and something you decide upon.”
Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality
