Cassandra Rose Clarke

The Mad Scientist’s Daughter – February 2013 (worldwide)

The Author, Cassandra Rose ClarkeCassandra Rose Clarke is a speculative fiction writer and occasional teacher living amongst the beige stucco of Houston, Texas. She graduated in 2006 from The University of St. Thomas with a bachelor’s degree in English, and in 2008 she completed her master’s degree in creative writing from The University of Texas at Austin. Both of these degrees have served her surprisingly well.

During the summer of 2010, she attended the Clarion West Writers Workshop in Seattle, where she enjoyed sixty-degree summer days. Having been born and raised in Texas, this was something of a big deal. She was also a recipient of the 2010 Susan C. Petrey Clarion Scholarship Fund.

Cassandra is the author of The Assassin’s Curse (“Unique, heart-wrenching, full of mysteries and twists!” – Tamora Pierce, author of Alanna: The First Adventure and other Tortall novels), from our YA imprint Strange Chemistry, published in October 2012. The sequel, The Pirate’s Wish will be published in June 2013.

She can be found on her website and on Twitter.
