Cassandra Carter

About Cassandra Carter

Cassandra Charisse Carter was born on Tuesday, February 21, 1989 in Reading,
Pennsylvania. She is best known for her young adult novels, "Fast Life"(July 2007) and "16 Isn't Always Sweet" (March 2008).

From the time she was a young girl, Cassandra exhibited a passion for writing. Her talent was first noticed in the elaborate stories she wrote for her mother, but she was also praised by both her teachers and her peers. At the tender age of 9, Cassandra and her mother moved to Michigan where Cassandra continued to find different ways to express herself on paper. While studying various writing styles, she's preserved an original voice that today's generation can relate to.

Cassandra was only 14 years-old when she created the concept for Fast Life. Inspired by a dream, she completed the fictional work the following summer when she was just 15. With the encouragement of her family and help from a literary agent, she signed a contract with Kimani Tru, a young adult imprint of Harlequin Inc. two years later. An honors graduate from Huron High School, Cassandra received her diploma just one month before welcoming the release of her first published title, Fast Life.

Ms. Carter currently resides in Michigan where she's been busy promoting her newest novel, "Love, Lies & Consequences (The Fast Life Sequel)."
