Cassandra Duffy

Biography

Cassandra Duffy spent most of her childhood being precocious, which stopped being entertaining or impressive when she grew into an adult, at which point she had to start being precious. After being an outcast child prodigy it was no surprise when she graduated from one of the many fine University of California schools a year early to follow her girlfriend in a cross country move.

She writes a free-lance sex advice column found in various lesbian magazines and dating websites. Her short story collections and novels can be found on her website at http://cassandra-duffy.com/.

Two of her greatest prides are being a true California girl and author of some truly naughty things. She is a dutiful partially-Asian daughter who is beloved by her fairly traditional Korean father who thinks having a gay daughter is just fine as long as she keeps playing coed flag football. She is a stereotypical younger sister, and an adoring aunt of a hilarious little boy. Being a modern techno-freak, gamer-girl, she spent most of her childhood dreaming of being a video game designer, but changed her mind and brought her dreams of world building and story-weaving to writing unique romance novels.

Cassandra is a gleefully monogamous girlfriend to an earthbound goddess who was once her high school bully, but has done a magnificent job of making up for all the school girl nastiness ever since. When she isn’t being an avid fang girl (vampire fan girl) or tormenting people in online gaming, she lives and writes in Winter Park, Florida with her partner and soul mate Nichole and their two cats: Dragon and Josephine.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
In college. During high school I wanted to be a video game designer. It wasn't until college that I even thought of story in terms of books rather than games. I tried writing a piece for the college paper my freshman year, and it was terrible. I didn't really write again for a year. Eventually, I tried again, got better, took some classes so I would know what I was doing, and eventually ended up majoring in English. It's been an interesting trek from wanting to tell stories through an interactive, visual and auditory medium to an entirely text based one.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Getting to entertain through stories. There are writers who want to push the literary envelope and try to revolutionize the genre, and they're welcome to my share of the envelopes and the revolution. I like the storyteller label far more than I like the artist one. Hearing that a reader has enjoyed the story is what gives me joy.
