Bio: Cassandra Bella has been writing for as long as she can remember, and for as long as she's been letting others know. Just look back into her junior high and high school yearbooks - both proclaim "Author" as her career goal. She completed her first book, "Dear Diary" in her grandmother's family room on a manual typewriter at the age of 12 - that manuscript still holds a place of honor in her home. Her current passion for romances stems from her love of stories that touch the heart. Her characters are born in many people, from old friends to grandparents to her "dear, sweet, loving husband." When it comes to heroes, hers usually have some sort of law enforcement background and their inspiration lies in her father, who made a life-long career of keeping the peace. You can find Cassandra's first published novel, KIDNAPPED HEART, in the summer of 2000, where it will be published by BooksonScreen (PageFree Publishing). Her second novel, RELUCTANT ANGEL, will be released this winter by Awe-Struck Ebooks. Cassandra is a proud member of the Romance Writers of America and their chapters, the Colorado Romance Writers, From the Heart Online, and Kiss of Death. She also belongs to the World Romance Writers. Cassandra was born and raised in Colorado, and currently lives there with her husband, who was her high school sweetheart, two sons and one daughter.
