Cassie Daley is a writer and illustrator living in Northern California. Her first published short story, “Ready or Not”, debuted as a part of Fright Girl Summer, and is available to read online. Her nonfiction has been published by Unnerving Magazine, and her short fiction has appeared in several horror anthologies. She is the creator of THE BIG BOOK OF HORROR AUTHORS: A Coloring & Activity Book and ROSIE PAINTS WITH GHOSTS, an illustrated spooky story for children. In addition to her writing, Cassie owns an online art shop and is also a contributing team member to the Ladies of Horror Fiction website.
Being both an Argentine and pansexual, she's a vocal supporter of inclusive diversity within the genre, and actively seeks to promote queer and/or BIPOC writers, artists, and creators whenever possible. Along with her love of books and social justice, Cassie's other hobbies include repeatedly reorganizing her extensive comic book collection, avoiding the underwater levels in video games because they freak her out, and listening to the same 5 songs on repeat that she's loved since her emo phase in high school. She loves trying new things (especially if they're related to arts & crafts!), and will forever have a soft spot for anything sci-fi.
In regards to her horror preferences, Cassie loves a good ol' final girl, spookiness set in space, and emotional gutpunches that make her cry.
