Cas Blomberg


"And you, where did they capture you?"
"Somewhere south of the crags who ate the good captain's brother and east of the armored men who chased me." -- Ashborne: The First Chronicle

In a former life, Cas Blomberg wore a badge and wielded a gun. Now she wears whatever she wants and wields a pen. First published in 2008, Cas spends most of her time surviving the brutal cold winters of Scandinavia. Writing fantasy novels, short stories and poetry helps her forget about the freezing death waiting just outside the door.

Her latest novel, Ashborne, follows a cleric, her husband, and one of the last Elven sorcerers as they each try to escape from their past only to find themselves thrown into an unknown future. It's available for purchase at and other eBook retailers.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I read almost anything, from meditative books to new strange fiction like China Mieville or Lovecraft. I am also character driven. Give me a character to root for and you've hooked me. I enjoy Margaret Atwood and Octavia Butler. But I also enjoy noir and mystery.
Describe your desk
I have a white IKEA desk. Atop the desk is my laptop and a set of horizontal filing storage cubes where I store each of the stories I'm working on along with notes or feedback from readers. My 'Revision Cubes' I call them. Also on the desk is a can of Zingo, a box of story dice, an old apple box painted with an American flag where I keep loose coins and scrapbooking supplies. On the wall behind my desk are two corkboards where I post random ideas or notes. At the moment a card with the word Persistence is posted there to remind me the name of the road is Persistence.
