About

When I turned 30 I was single, alone and heart broken on the other side of the globe. I started writing as sort of therapy at the time, but after people started reading it and said it was actually good, I thought maybe others might like to hear my story. Maybe those going through a hard time will take something away from it.
Apart from that, you will find out so much more by reading the blog and my book, Story of a Secret Heart……..but……I love animals, especially cats, and I love to laugh!
The book, Story of a Secret Heart, is the story of how my broken heart became the making of me. Even today, the stories still make me laugh!
This Blog includes paragraphs from the book, Story of a Secret Heart, and also personal information about myself. I hope you enjoy!

    Thanks for the follow, Cassi 🙂 Your book seems to be doing well, if the Amazon rating is anything to go by! It sounds very real-world, and I like that. Will try my best to give it a look, and maybe even review on my blog (time permitting)!

    Congratulations and I wish you only success 🙂

        I’d love to review your book, although because I review books for lots of authors there’d be a bit of a wait. Would you still like me to review it? I’ve got my contact details on my blog in the about section, or I could leave them here?

    Hey Cassi, thanks for the follow on the blog. It is so encouraging to find someone who has risen quite like a phoenix, from the ashes of a heartbreak to completing a book on that. Lots of good luck and best wishes for the success of your book. God bless. 🙂

    Hi there,

    I am writing to you to firstly say i am a big fan of your site. I think your posts are very thought-provoking and a very interesting read. I came across some of your writing after you liked something on my site: theprestopost.com .

    I have recently created the site which publishes articles and media on a wide range of topics. It is a combination of news aggregation, opinions, discussions and helpful articles. There is a blog section, as well as content on business, nutrition, fitness, philosophy, education, happiness, tech and so on. I want it to be an international hub of fascinating reads, material and resources, but unlike other sites out there.

    My vision of it is a global platform that delivers powerful information to readers, and one that anyone can benefit from. Videos, media and guest blogs from opinionated, interesting people. I also have plans to develop some sort of discussion/forum function and a detailed news feature. Think the Huffington Post, but better. A cleaner look, a more easier but equally-valuable content and focused almost exclusively on the readers. That is, all of the content will have some purpose to it. Each story will have a story behind it. If you are an avid reader, i also have a book section, in which we will discuss books, review them and dissect ideas and theories past, present and future. Here, there will be stories, poetry, recommendations, notes and hopefully friendly debate 🙂

    I believe, and you may or may not agree, that if everyone could read a little more, understand our purpose in life a little better and do what they genuinely love to do – the world would be a better place. And that is the mission of this site – To connect people and share knowledge for the benefit of the one family that lives under the skies.

    Back to the reason i am writing to you then, i would really like you to contribute to the site in some way. I resonate with your writing, your broad interests and admire your style. It can be any format you like, eg, a weekly blog, book review, daily thoughts, short pieces, or anything that interests you. Life, health and the mind are probably my biggest passions and its a part of the site i really want to push. You could even share some of your favourite articles, or online reads as part of our RePressed section, which i talk about below.

    As with reading, i think if the global population could just understand a little more about food, exercise and their mind, we would eradicate many illnesses and move the human race forward 10x fold. The only thing that is holding us back, is this lack of knowledge. That is, the habits we have, thoughts and what we do on a daily basis all links to health in the end. The mind really is everything and i think it is best described in a simple little equation: Input = Output . I am an avid student of philosophy, the body and thinking – which is what attracted me to your site.

    If you take a look a the site ( link at bottom) and take a look at some of the categories, you will see a range of content which i hope will give you an idea. I think you’ll like the books topic.

    Here are some of the most popular articles you may want to check out:

    https://prestopost.org/2016/05/13/blog-post-title-5/ – The Illusion of Fitness

    Also check out our ‘RePressed’ section: http://prestopost.org/category/repressed/ This is where we share our favourite articles, what we’re reading and any other interesting things from the web, we then link it back to the source.

    The site is currently not generating any profit, but as it gets bigger i will utilise ads that are specific to the customer, maybe even ask our readers to choose the ads. I want the writing to be done from the heart, just for the sake of helping and informing others, not for anything else. You probably know that monetizing such a site will take time but can be done, so in this instance, if you are interested i ask for your patience.

    I think if we can collaborate together and promote each other, it is a win-win not only for us, but for our readers.

    I look forward to your reply and hope you can become part of this special project. I do not have many writers, but i am trying to build a core team of passionate people who together, create something amazing.

    Thanks so much for your time,

    Jai
    Founder theprestopost.com

    Hi Cassie-

    I was in the process of downloading your novel when it seemed to disappear I don’t know where. Can you please send me back the e-mail which you sent me along with the novel attachment.

    I’m really sorry for this inconvenience,

    Carol (carfour280@hotmail.com)
