Cass E Ritter

Biography

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Cass E Ritter is the name under which I, the author, write adult fiction - romance, erotic romance, romantic drama, erotic drama, erotica.
I would read what I write, although I won't attempt to write everything I read.
I am confident I can write the above-mentioned genres. I love writing stories about women who find strength through adversity. My women develop confidence and self-sufficiency, which includes being comfortable with their bodies and sexuality. My women love men, especially the one special man written for them. They are not dependent on this man, but complement him as he complements her.

As a reader, in addition to romance and erotica, I enjoy forensic and court room thrillers, good whodunits, some horror (although I've found I'm becoming more squeamish with age), and I'm determined to re-read some classics I was made to read at school.

DEBUT NOVEL(S):
The Lost Soul is the first book in the In Memoriam Duology. Book 2, Stolen Time will be released in December 2014.
The Lost Soul and Stolen Time are semi-autobiographical, full-length novels.
Elements where Nina's and my life are similar include being born in Germany and living abroad (which meant that A-Level studies didn't start until the age of 18); coming to terms with alcohol-abusing parents at war long beyond their divorce; a friendship with a middle-aged technician that started at school and led to a passionate affair at the age of almost 21; having a child together; and the discovery many years after the end of the affair that he died and we never got to say goodbye.
It was this discovery that was the inspiration to write the In Memoriam Duology, to create Nina and Lom and give them a voice. I used my own timeline and snapshots of memory as a framework for the story. The detail, people, descriptions are fictional or fictionalised. The two books are set in a fictional part of East Kent, UK and in Germany.
The Lost Soul is a coming of age story, a journey of discovery, of first love and passion.
Stolen Time is a story of passion rekindled, of life choices and overcoming adversity.
The books include explicit description and are recommended for 18+ readers.
