Cassandra Gaisford

About me

Cassandra Gaisford is an award winning artist and historical novelist of art-related fiction.

In 2008 Cassandra downsized her flourishing business as a life and career coach to write her first historical work of art related fiction. She turned deaf ears to parents and friends who pleaded with her to “get a real job,” and rented out her house and did a succession of freelance and contracting jobs to support “writing days.”

For several years prior she focused on penning contemporary romance novels with an eye on the lucrative Mills and Boon market. But her real passion, her true path with heart, was the seductive, sensual and evocative historical novels she loved to read.
