She joined the US Air Force after high school. Once she left, the author took up writing and public speaking. Cast taught high school for over a decade. But eventually, she retired and became a full-time writer.

The author has been writing for as long as she can remember. In fact, she was still in first grade when she wrote her first book (Blurry The Blue Whale). Although, it was never published.

She knew she was destined for a career in writing and publishing. Cast looks at her creativity as a superpower. Her brain is always inventing new characters, paranormal concepts, and adventures.

However, even though her books are fantastical in nature, she does plenty of research. Because she takes inspiration from real places, she begins her journey by visiting some of those locations.

Once she’s seen enough, the author will create a loose outline from her notes before she sits down to write. Cast has learned to trust her gut. She knows her experience and understanding of storytelling and publishing won’t lead her astray.

Sometimes, the author is too hard on herself. For instance, she occasionally works 12-hour days for several weeks in a row. But whenever she breaks in between to reconsider her ideas, Cast feels like she is letting herself down.

If she isn’t sitting at her computer, she’s doing something wrong. That attitude creeps back up from time to time, but the author is older and wiser, and she doesn’t hesitate to dismiss it. She understands the importance of being kind to herself.

Cast loves revisions. This is her favorite aspect of the writing process. She cannot wait to finish her first draft, so she can put it aside for a week before returning to the manuscript and revising it from the beginning.

Revisions are necessary because Cast doesn’t stick to her outline, not strictly. She knows the beginning and the end, but everything in between is fluid.

For that reason, she avoids detailed outlines. Cast knows that every idea she concocts can undergo drastic changes by the time she completes the final draft.

The author does most of her writing at night. She settles down at her computer at 8:00 p.m and works for 6 hours straight. Sometimes, she gets so immersed in her world that she cannot help but write for 12 or more hours in one go.

These writing sessions are exhausting but also gratifying. Cast uses a tread-desk that allows her to walk as she writes. She keeps a pot of tea on hand, along with research books and her dogs.

P.C. Cast Awards

Cast has won RT Reviewers Choice and RWA PRISM Awards.

Best P.C. Cast Books

The author has collaborated with her daughter on several novels. She appreciates the process because, in most cases, writing is a solitary activity. She enjoys sharing her passion for storytelling with her daughter. Cast’s best books include:

Marked: Zoey was 16 when she joined the House of Night. Her adventure began when a vampire tracker marked her forehead with a crescent moon. The mark signified her bond with a Vampyre goddess, and it gave Zoey affinities for all five elements.

But Zoey was not the only fledgling with special powers. The House of Knight was home to an elite club called the Dark Daughters, and their leader was misusing her gifts.

Zoey won’t survive without her Vampyre allies.

Betrayed: The House of Night has many special students. But none of them compare to Zoey. Her vast collection of powers comes from the Vampyre Goddess Nyx. But those powers are the source of Zoey’s problems.

The High Priestess in training knew something was afoot when human teenagers started dying. Accusing fingers pointed at the House of Night. Even though she knew better, Zoey had no choice but to get involved.

The humans from her old life were in danger, and she had the power to save them. She did not expect to learn that her powers were the biggest threat to her loved ones.
