About Cassi Ellen:
When I turned 30 I was single, alone and heart broken on the other side of the globe. I started writing as sort of therapy at the time, but after people started reading it and said it was actually good, I thought maybe others might like to hear my story. Maybe those going through a hard time will take something away from it.
The book is the story of how my broken heart became the making of Cassi (me). Even today, the stories in the book still make me laugh!
Apart from that, you will find out so much more by reading the book……I love animals, especially cats, and I love to laugh.
What inspires you to write?
When I turned 30 I had my heart broken, and I guess as therapy I started writing. Somehow writing down how I felt made me a little less lonely. As I continued to write, I continued to grow, and the more I became inspired.
Tell us about your writing process.
When I’m writing I tend to imagine myself in that moment in time and just ‘go for it’. Then I always go back later and add in the details. I’m an editor’s nightmare as I constantly mix up my tenses because I’m sometimes thinking back to a moment, and other times I’m imaging myself in that moment!
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
The story of Cassi is based on my own story, but if I’m honest I still talk to her when I’m writing. Particularly if I’m thinking back to an upsetting moment; I just want to hug her and tell her it’s going to be ok!
What advice would you give other writers?
Use your emotions when you write. I tend to use my own emotions and often get myself quiet upset when I’m writing.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I choose to self-publish mainly because I thought that was the correct decision for me. I was shy to start off with, and I hated the thought of discussing my book with anyone. I liked having total control I guess.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think it’s great! There are just so many opportunities out there, and it really is accessible for everyone.
