Why the agony of writing for teens is worth it

Writers can become burned out. I don’t mean the hyperventilating, “OMG I have no story ideas!” type of burn out. I mean the grind of the words, the constant push to out-write your last book, the stiff necks, the time crunches, and the piecemealing of a life outside of your characters’ worlds. You try to balance […]

High School Reunions – Go or No?

I’m elderly. Did you know that? Because I bloody well didn’t realize this horrible fact until I was faced with my 20 year high school reunion. It was like a face-plant to a sliding glass door. Twenty YEARS? Where the hell did TWENTY YEARS go? I mean, I could have sworn we were just being […]

Indie author life and other forms of torture

Last night I had an epiphany. One would think it would have been obvious to ME for a while now, but it wasn’t. You see, I am a self-published author, though I refer to myself as an “Indie” mainly because I operate like a business – like a small press. I am also a professional […]

Book Review – The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver

While I do not have a sister, the idea of giving up one’s whole existence for the sake of another is both poignant and painful to absorb. In The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver, readers travel through Ella Lawton’s life – that of a semi-outcast whose popular twin sister, Maddy, has cast her aside for […]

Book Review – CREED by Leaver and Currie

Elijah Hawkins needs to die. Slowly. Painfully. Tortured until his pleads for mercy only serve to fuel my inner demon. Needless to say, I am not a fan of the man, which is why he was so perfectly written. When I started reading CREED by Trisha Leaver and Lindsay Currie, I was expecting to hide […]

Cassie Mae Book Reviews
