What is the funniest thing a reader has ever told you?
That would have to be the time someone reviewed my science-fiction novel, Dremiks, and complained that there was “too much science”.
If you could be any occupation other than an author, what would you be and why?
US Ambassador to the Court of St. James (Great Britain) (Cassandra is very active in politics and was an aide to Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky)
Do you ever laugh or cry while reading your own books? Explain!
There are a couple of scenes that remind me of friends or relatives that have passed away, so I cry during those. I usually laugh harder when I’m writing a scene, rather than re-reading it!
What is the last children’s book you read? Why did you read it?
Greg’s Third Adventure in Time was the last children’s book I read. I had to read it, because I was coding the digital copy! (Cassandra kindly codes all of my books, adds C.M. Huddleston)
If your latest book (or any book) was made into a movie, who would play the main character?
I’d love to see Scarlett Johanssonn play Maggie O’Connell, but I think she’s too pretty.
Who wrote your favorite book, the one you have read over and over again? What makes this book your favorite?
Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone with the Wind” is my favorite book. My original copy has been dropped in a creek, shoved in my backpack so many times the cover is torn, and moved across the country. I’ve always been fascinated by Scarlett. She’s not a good person. She’s not a Disney Princess. You don’t want to tell your daughter to grow up to be like Scarlett—but yet she’s very relatable, precisely because she’s so flawed. Scarlett is the reason I write so many flawed heroines! (Cassandra failed to mention she owns a first edition of Gone with the Wind that her two boys have never been allowed to touch)
