Cassandra O’Leary is a writer/corporate wordsmith and communications specialist, avid reader, film and TV fangirl, and admirer of pretty, shiny things. In 2013, Cassandra tackled a long-term goal to get serious about creative writing. She’s now in the process of writing her third full-length novel.
Contemporary romance and romantic comedy are her main genres, but she has a few shorter novellas and other projects on the go, always, probably simultaneously. Cassandra’s short story Chocolate Truffle Kiss was published in a 2015 Melbourne Romance Writers Guild anthology, Sweet and Spicy – a celebration of romance, now available at major e-book retailers.
Cassandra was a 2015 finalist in the Contemporary Series category in the Lone Star writing contest run by the Northwest Houston Romance Writers of America, and a 2014 finalist in the First Kiss contest run by Romance Writers of Australia, of which she’s a proud member. She is also the winner of the We Heart New Talent contest run by Avon Maze/HarperCollins UK.
She is a mother of two gorgeous, high-energy mini ninjas and wife to a spunky superhero. Living in Melbourne, Australia, she’s also travelled the world. If you want to send her to Italy or Spain on any food or wine tasting ‘research’ trips, that would be splendiferous.
