Cassie Davies is an English author who tried to suppress her vivid imagination in art. When that didn’t work, she tried psychology to figure out the complexities of the human mind. Needless to say, this didn’t succeed either. Finally she found herself dipping back into a forgotten childhood habit—to frantically write and give her muse an outlet.

She loves paranormal romance and has recently had short stories published in online magazines. She has just finished a full-length novel and is actively seeking representation.
