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.

Smashwords book reviews by Cassandra Curtis

  • Sinful Pleasures on March 12, 2011
    star star star star
    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

    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.

    Why didn't this sort of thing happen at any of my art showings? lol. Loved this sexy little story and the heroine was a perfect match for the hero. Her warring emotions were very believable. I'd recommend this story to anyone who enjoys romantic short fiction with a touch of real warmth.
  • Sonnet Seduction on June 24, 2011

    Loved the nuances in this story and the blend of mathematics, poetry, and prose! Excellent lyrical voice! The amazing thing is this ebook is free!
  • Her Viking Valentine on June 25, 2011
    star star star star
    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.
