Cassandra Curtis


Author of the bestselling Shifting Tides series and finalist in 2007’s EPIC awards, Ms. Curtis is a former journalist and fine artist, who always loved reading tales of adventure, romance, mystery, and magic. Then one day decided to try her hand at fiction writing. A voracious reader, literal tree hugger, part-time virtual mermaid, paranormal researcher, and maker of decadent desserts, Ms. Curtis writes contemporary and paranormal erotic romance under the name Cassandra Curtis, and mainstream romantic comedy as Cass Curtis. Humor is a common thread in all her stories.

Her latest ebook is The Midnight Effect (El Lobizon Book 1) in her popular Latin Werewolves series, (originally published in 2007, and revised with additional new material in 2015).

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
My parents moved around a lot due to my father's job, so my sisters and I got to spend time in some interesting places. I think always being the new kid in town taught me to adapt to new situations. My writing benefits from my broad experience, and in turn, my experiences color the worlds and the backgrounds I create.
Who are your favorite authors?

Smashwords book reviews by Cassandra Curtis

  • Sinful Pleasures on March 12, 2011

    Sinful Pleasures is a sweet and salty mix of edible treats. I love anthologies and this one is a wonderful combination of stories. Ms. Cassidy's Devil's Heart takes us to the Irish countryside and into the pub of one mouth-watering hot Irishman who will steal your heart with his charm. Stephanie St. James' Business or Pleasure has an emotional depth to her characters I don't see often in such shorter works. You'll find yourself cheering for her heroine. Jen Ashton's short stories are delicious little nibbles that add the perfect touch to Sinful Pleasures.
  • Shibuya Moment on June 13, 2011
    (no rating)
    Wonderful short novella. Very sweet romantic story with lots of emotion. The author has a fluid writing style that carries you away on the adventure with them.
  • Her Viking Valentine on June 25, 2011

    Short story sequel to Ms. Painter's book, All Fired Up. Freya is up to her old tricks, but Alrik and Calleigh are determined to make their first Valentine's Day memorable. Fun little story. Although Her Valentine Viking can be read and enjoyed without reading All Fired Up, I recommend purchasing Ms. Painter's first story because it will make the short sequel even more enjoyable with the additional background.
