January 28, 2011: With regard to my new avi, that's my new Westie puppy, Moira Kathleen, commonly known as Katie. She came from Westie Rescue for whom I've been doing a lot of volunteer work lately. BTW, if you're thinking of adopting a canine companion, please consider a shelter or rescue dog. They really do make wonderful pets. But whatever you do, please, please, please. . . Never, ever, ever buy a dog from a pet store! This only encourages puppy mills, the tragic results of which I've seen far too often over the past 8 months. - Cassandra

January 6, 2011: First and foremost, Happy New Year! Second, in response to those who have been asking for more stories, I don't have any immediate plans to write more fanfiction as I've been very busy with other writing projects as well as that other major waste of time called life. I do, however, read all of your comments and appreciate each and every one. Love to all! - Cassandra

March 19, 2010: I want to apologize to many of you for not responding to reviews. I've been dealing with a lot of personal issues over the past few months, including the death of my beloved West Highland Terrier, Charlie, who died on 12 March at the relatively young age of 8 (that's him in my avi, with his fur-sister, Belle, peeking round the corner of the tree - Belle is missing Charlie too and grieving deeply in her own way). I do read all your reviews and appreciate them very much, but I haven't been up for any writing in a long while. Thank you so much for continuing to read and enjoy my stories. Your comments always give me a lift and help to brighten a fairly dark time in my life. - Cassandra

March 16, 2009:I thought I'd better update this page for the sake of anyone who may be wondering where I've gone and where I'm going. I am alive and well, but for the foreseeable future I will be focusing on non-Harry Potter fiction. I am hard at work on a novel that's been in the back of my mind for a number of years. By some miracle, it's going very well so it may be awhile before I get back to fanfiction. But I did want to thank everyone who has read my stories and send a huge cyber-hug to all those who took the time to review them. It's primarily because of you that I have the confidence to move ahead with what appears, so far at least, to be something that may very well see publication. I plan to keep this account open and will try to post occasional updates, but please feel free to PM me if you have questions or just want to say "Hi!" I love you all. Take care!

Call me Cassandra. I'm a fourth-generation Coloradan, the mother of a grown son who flies for Sky West Airlines, a writer, former editor, and amateur astrologer with a strong interest in history and a mild addiction to politics. I've helped run several political campaigns and have been asked to run for office myself, which I briefly considered in all seriousness before sobering up and coming to my senses. I enjoy reading, especially mysteries, biographies, and well-written romances, as well as (of course!) the Harry Potter books. I am owned by two dogs, a Westie (Charlie) and Sheltie (Belle) with whom I enjoy going for long walks. I also enjoy gardening, listening to classical music and jazz, and lately, writing fanfics. I have been a card-carrying member of WCAWLHPTM (Women of a 'Certain Age' Who Love Harry Potter Too Much) for some time, but only recently discovered fanfics and started writing them in an effort to overcome a bad case of writer's block. I love to read reviews and leave them whenever I have anything constructive to say.
