Let me introduce myself...
I am a full-time novelist and Cass Tell is my pen name. Most of my books are suspense action/thrillers, but I also write literary stories and short stories (sometimes romantic). I also write books for young teens and most recently have been working on a series titled The Adventures of Amy and Jack.
I like novels that keep the adrenaline pumping but also leave an after-thought. Therefore, I want my stories to be provocative, not holding back when dealing with controversial topics of love, culture, religion and worldviews. I like to test paradigms of morality and to deal with the tension between personal choice and cultural norms. Often my books take readers outside their comfort zone.
As an author, I shy away from the spot light and and therefore am careful about my privacy. I grew up in the United States but now live in a small Spanish village on the Costa Brava. My home overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and provides a quiet place where one can reflect on the world in a deeper way.
While I do most of my writing from Spain, I travel a lot. This experience is reflected in my writing, as my novels typically contain a variety of international settings. I write in English, am fluent in French, and manage to get by in a number of different languages. Maybe "fluent" in French is stretching it a bit!
I attended university in the U.S. and Europe. After graduating I worked for several large corporations. Then I started a company, and ended up selling it. This business experience is reflected in many of my stories.
I'd love to receive your feedback on my novels, but, please let me warn you. I'm terrible about responding to emails and it may take me weeks or even months to get back to you. Having a one track mind, once I get into writing a story, my mind can get stuck there for a long time.
