Casandra Chesser is a freelance writer, editor, and novelist who started writing in kindergarten and never stopped. Her career began writing columns for a local newspaper, but history has always been her passion.
She spent many years immersed in the past during her childhood in northeast Florida, exploring the nation’s oldest city, St. Augustine. History has always felt like an opportunity for her to experience different things; to visit another world, be transported into fantasy, and learn from the people and places who came before us.
A Florida native, Chesser now lives in Nebraska with her husband, six children, two cats, and one dog.
Her debut historical mystery novel, Rising Water, is set to be released in late 2021.
