Cassandra Morgan

Biography

Cassandra Morgan is the author of the young adult fantasy series, Chartile, the first book in the series being Prophecy.
She is an advocate for helping teen writers and educating about the self-publishing journey.
Cassie comes from a family of writers and English majors, and began creating stories before she could even write.
She would force her cousins and siblings to act our plays she had created for the entertainment of her family — mainly her grandmother, from whom she gets most of her writing talent.
The idea for Chartile began when Cassandra was in middle school, stemming from the games she would play with her friends after school in the woods behind her house. In 2012, after she just couldn’t get the story to stop nagging at her, Cassie finally decided to put her nose to the grindstone, and pen it all out.
Before writing Chartile, Cassandra worked in the animal industry for nearly 10 years where she specialized in feline
behavior and feline nutrition. She has worked for a veterinary hospital, groomer, pet store, and canine boarding and
training facility. Cassie has 5 cats, one of which is a registered therapy cat and shows in TICA in the Household Pet
category.
Cassandra enjoys acting in small, indie film productions, and working as an assistant producer. Her team won the 48
Hour Detroit Film Project’s Best Comedy award. She also enjoys historical reenactment with The SCA, which has
been a tremendous help when researching topics for her books. Cassie enjoys volunteering with a number of rescue
groups in her area, caring for orphaned kittens, and volunteering with the local wildlife rehabilitation center.
