Cassie Beasley Hi there! I’m Cassie Beasley, the author of Circus Mirandus. It’s a middle grade fantasy novel filled with powerful magic and family mysteries and invisible tigers and…well, I guess you can tell that I’m pretty excited about my first book! I live in rural Georgia with my best friend, who also happens to be my younger sister, Kate Beasley. She writes children’s books too, which is every bit as convenient and lovely as it sounds. I’ve written a little bit of everything over the past few years, including short stories and poems for adults, but I love reading and writing fiction for young people most of all. I earned my MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Vermont College of Fine Arts. It’s a magical place for writerly sorts, and I had the opportunity to work with amazing mentors like Mark Karlins, Susan Fletcher, Martine Leavitt, and Uma Krishnaswami. (I’ve linked to their sites so that you can see all of the great stories they’ve written if you’re interested.) My agent is the brilliant Elena Giovinazzo of Pippin Properties. Circus Mirandus has been published by Dial Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Penguin Random House. In the UK, it’s available from Chicken House. You should be able to find it in your local bookstore, or you can order it from tons of places online!
