Episode #037 Writing Competitions as a Path to Publication with Cassandra O'Leary

We're chatting romantic comedy this week with Cassandra O’Leary, a romance and women’s fiction writer, communications specialist, avid reader, film and TV fangirl and admirer of pretty, shiny things.

In 2015, Cassandra was a finalist in the Lone Star writing contest, Northwest Houston Romance Writers of America, and in 2014 she was a finalist in the First Kiss contest run by Romance Writers of Australia. She was the winner of the We Heart New Talent contest run by Avon Maze/HarperCollins UK and her debut contemporary romance/romantic comedy novel, Girl on a Plane, releases in July 2016.

Cassandra is a mother of two gorgeous, high-energy mini ninjas and wife to a spunky superhero. Living in Melbourne, Australia, she’s also travelled the world. If you want to send her to Italy or Spain on any food or wine tasting ‘research’ trips, that would be splendiferous.
