Kasi Blake

Biography

As a child, books were my constant companion. I've always loved to read, but I didn't start writing until I was twelve. I've had two books published with Harlequin under the name Kasi Blake, but YA books are my favorites. I never outgrew them.

I teach kindergarten thru 2nd grade at a private school, and I reside in Missouri with my two cats, Blanca and Gracie Bear.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
When I was twelve, the English teacher assigned us a book to read and report on. The book was The Outsiders, and I fell in love with reading while following Ponyboy, his brothers, and his friends on their adventure. After that, going from reader to writer seemed like a natural step. It also helped that my best friend at the time was writing her own short story. I still remember it vividly. She was a HUGE Shaun Cassidy fan and was doing a story about how they were going to meet and fall in love.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I started out writing for a well-known publisher, but I found it too rigid and binding. I had absolutely no control over my own books. By the time they went to market they felt like they belonged to someone else and not to me. Being an indie writer is awesome. Now I get to choose the cover, the title, and I don't have to write the story the editors want. I write the story that I want to read.

  • The Emmanuels: A Story About Faith, Hope And Love on Aug. 03, 2011

    This book is basically a good read. I was looking for something a bit different, but there's nothing wrong with it. The writing is good. I thought it was a bit too steamy in one scene, but that's just me.
