If you are relatively new to my website or blog, welcome!
Since it’s the day after Christmas and smack dab in the middle of the holiday season, I thought I’d take this relatively chill moment to share a bit about myself and my latest work-in-progress, “A Fierce Debt.”
My latest book “A Fierce Debt,” is a new adult Robinhood-inspired fantasy romance taking place in a setting similar to the Scottish Highlands. Think if Robinhood was Gaelic and even more morally grey than he is already and if Maid Marian is a feminist. There’s a slow-burn romance, lots of adventure and wise-cracking bandits.
I wrote “A Fierce Debt” back in November for NaNoWriMo. It was my first time participating in the challenge. I hope to edit the work some more soon and eventually publish it, but right now, it is available for free to read on Inkitt.
My name is Cailin and I’ve been writing and reading since I was little. I “published” my first book in elementary school–a knock-off Harry Potter that was written on white copy paper and stapled together.
Being an author was, for a long time, a pipe dream that I revisited from time to time. I graduated from college with a dual degree in English and Journalism and went straight on to graduate school. From there, I went straight to full-time work. So slowing down and finding time to actually write was never really a thing…until it was.
I moved to Kansas in 2020, right before the start of the pandemic. While we all know how shitty that was, one silver lining was that I found myself with a lot more time to write. It took me one whole year to finish my first non-fiction book, “How to Become a Grown-Ass Woman.” It took another year and a half to query and eventually self-publish. My first book was published for ebook and paperback in October 2022.
Despite my first book being self-help, my true love has always been fantasy and romance. My dream is to have “A Fierce Debt” turn into a trilogy.
Some other fun facts about me:
- My fiance and I are currently hunting for our first home.
- I own three cats and an Arabian cross horse named Louie.
- I grow my own peppers and usually have a few other vegetables and flowers going.
- On weekends, I like baking yummy treats. On my to-bake list: chocolate orange banana bread, key lime pie, lemon drizzle cake, red velvet Yule log (I’m a Great British Baking Show fan!)
