Author has written 26 stories for Misc. Movies, Mary Poppins, Darling Lili, Sound of Music, Americanization of Emily, Tamarind Seed, Princess Diaries, Hawaii, and My Fair Lady.

The name's Cass. I'm 21 years old and crazy passionate about what I do. I am a political science graduate student, don't get enough sleep, consume lots of sugar, stress over term papers, and think about writing lots of fanfiction for The Sound of Music.

Here's the deal. My life is basically borrowed time and then some. I want to write like mad yet I can never justify it. Anything I do write until I've finished school, which could be six months from now or five years from now, will be purely serendipitous.


Works in Progress

Qualms - The Sound of Music (more or less of epic proportions, might not ever get done if it weren't for NaNoWriMo.)

Never Contradict Her - The Princess Diaries

Lessons - The Sound of Music (always in need of ideas for this one, so feel free to take a look at what I've got and throw some suggestions out there.)

Broken - Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
