Welcome to Cozy Vales
Join me and eight other authors for cozy fantasy winter tales in Queen Liara’s queendom, Cozy Vales. Pour yourself a mug of tea, coffee, or cocoa (we don’t judge), wrap up in your fluffiest of blankets, and enjoy tales of needle-wielding pixies, wandering teahouses, witchy stitchers, bard toads, and so much more.
The anthology features the start of my new Pokeberry Village Mystery series, Sour at The Salt & Pickle.
Books, Books, Books
I am all about books. I read them, edit them, write them, review them, and throw them at the wall when they frustrate me. They also appear as main features in both of the series I write, whether as a job for both of my protaganists (Seraphina – book restorer; Jenna – writer), a love of reading as a hobby, or as literary quotes to teach someone a lesson.
You could say I am immersed in them in all the ways that count. If you love all things books, then come in and take a spin around. Don’t worry, I won’t throw a book at your head, but I may convince you to read one.
The story of
Cassandra Stirling’s entire career revolves around language. She has worked in the fields of law, publishing, and marketing; writing a book seemed like a natural progression. In 2019, her husband noted that, while Cassandra’s childhood dream job was to be a writer, she “was not a writer,” as “she didn’t write.”
She proved him wrong by writing her debut novel, The Deep Space Between.
