Meet the Author

Born in Mossey River, Manitoba, and raised as a farm girl near Ethelbert, Cassie relates her biography in two books she published: "Roots, A Life in Review" and "Small Beginnings".

Married to an Ethelbert farmer, Cassie took an active role in the farming operations while raising 3 children. Being resourceful, she found pleasure in creative ways to financial viability.

In 1977, Cassie went back to school to obtain her Grade 12 graduating one year after the last of her children! She took night courses in business and obtained her dream job as a secretary. This was the completion of an unfinished fantasy and she felt gratified and proud of her accomplishments.

From 1980 to 2006, Cassie traveled not only on the continent but also worldwide and kept detailed travel logs of these highlights of her life.

Now delighting in her retirement, she published a children book called "Sally Snowflake's Christmas". Currently she's delved into writing novels, the first being her first published "The Secret In Her Heart".

This was an entertaining read. It is an autobiography, so of course it is written in the first person. This is the second book of a series and I have not read the first. I would recommend reading that one first. This one is well edited and has a few rough spots. I did not like the repeatitons of some events reoccurring several times within just a few chapters. This book was a nice length. It held my interest. It was like reading a personal journal of someone's life. No cursing, sex, mystery or intense plot. Just a woman's memories of an eventful life, expressing her love and gratitude for the blessings in her life. If you like autobiographies of modern people, then you will enjoy this read. AD

A lovely example of a life that one might not have considered noteworthy in the celebrity sense. But had the author not decided to write her story, we would not have gained the insight into her strength of character, her development in the face of hardship, and about country living which we city dwellers could never have imagined. There are humorous and insightful comments about family relationships, and I feel a lot wiser for having read it. I think this kind of book would encourage someone who feels hesitant about writing of his/her life to see how important it might be to share it.
