It isn’t easy to surprise Cassandra Bick. When you run a human-vampire dating agency, your colleague is a witch who is engaged to a shifter and your business partner is one of London’s most powerful (and sexiest) vampires, there’s no such thing as a normal day at the office.
But when a mysterious Dark Dates client brings a dire warning of a new threat to the city’s supernatural community, Cass and her friends realise they are up against their deadliest foe yet – and that this time, the danger is far closer to home than they could ever have imagined.
Sexy, snarky and with more bite than a crypt full of vampires, Angel Falls is the latest in the Dark Dates: Cassandra Bick series

Q&A ~ The Real You
Describe yourself using three words? Northern, geeky, outspoken.
What inspired you to write your first novel? My first novel, Doll, was (very!) loosely based on my life – growing up an only child without a father, and wondering what it would be like if I met him.
What time of day do you like to write? Whenever I get the time – depends on what I am working on, and what else I have going on.
What is your favourite book and why? The answer to this changes every day, but eternal favourites are Pride and Prejudice, Dangerous Liaisons, Geek Love by Katherine Dunn, Heart of Darkness and The Good Soldier.
How do you pick the titles of your books? I’m terrible at this, actually, so it’s usually a scramble!
Are the characters in your books based on real people? They are rarely direct copies, but yes, people I know feed into a lot of my characters. I make changes though so people don’t get offended if you kill them off!
What’s your favourite word? Serendipity
If you were a colour what would it be? Silver
Do you plan your story beforehand or go with the flow? I usually have an idea of the beginning and the end and see what happens.
Who is your favourite Author? Too many to name, but Terry Pratchett was one of my most beloved.
If you could give any literary villain a happy ending who would you chose? What a great question! I would have quite liked the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont to reconcile and live to scheme again in Dangerous Liaisons. They were terrible people, but such fun!
Are you working on a new project? Yes, I have a number of projects on the go, including the new Dark Dates book!
