Cassandra Leuthold


Cassandra grew up in the small town of La Porte, Indiana, exploring wooded parks and sparkling lakes. Making South Bend her home, the scenery hasn't changed much - inspiring trees and a long, winding river. From the time she started writing in second grade up to the projects she works on now, the nature, history, and people around her inspire the stories she tells. You can find her work listed under many different genres, but the heart of each story remains the same. What keeps us together, and what pulls us apart?

She lives with her writer husband and their moody cat, Gaia, in a house three sizes too big. She holds a Bachelor's in Liberal Studies and a Master's in English. When she's not writing, you can find her sewing, enjoying nature, listening to music, researching family history, and watching TV.

  • Darkened on Feb. 06, 2013

    The description doesn't do this collection justice. It takes on so many different voices and topics that it works very well as variations on a theme. It touches on life, reality, death, cruelty, and love. It was extremely refreshing to see goth culture represented by someone who understands it. "Katie" is easily the most powerful and memorable piece, not just for its delicate subject matter but the incredibly eloquent way the author wrote it. I was impressed by the word play and scope of the poems. I look forward to reading more.
  • The Scrubs Thief on Dec. 17, 2013

    This short story surprised me with its true representation of everyday life and a heart-warming ending. It has humor as well as the day-to-day ups and downs of work and family life. My husband works in a hospital, and I could easily imagine someone in his department being... the scrubs thief!
