In The Spotlight Today: Cassandra Dyer!
How old are you and where are you from?
I am 23-years-old and I am from England.
Tell us more about your book!
I have a completed, three-part series called ‘Love and Success’ which is available on Amazon.
It follows the life of an aspiring businessman, who finds himself in a complicated and very hectic love triangle. Over the three books, you’ll follow Trey as he works on achieving his goals, with his high maintenance fiancée, Chyna, by his side. Witness him reconnecting with his childhood sweetheart, Ayisha, who he hoped to be there and share the moment with.
With both ladies now in his life and competing for this love, he has to decide who he’ll decide to spend the rest of his life with. Who will he choose?
You’re sharing an elevator with a big name publisher. Pitch your book using 20 words or less!
My books are authentic, portraying black men in a positive light. They cover new topics that are hardly in Novels.
What does your ideal writing space look like?
My ideal writing space would be modern providing lots of natural lighting. It would be peacefully quiet, decorated with: a large desk, comfy chair, soft rug, nice scented candles and flowers.
If your book was turned into a movie, who would play your main characters?
I would LOVVEEEEEEEE to have Asiah Epperson playing Chyna. She’s a great actor and I know she could deliver just enough crazy and a lot of high maintenance to bring Chyna to life. To play Trey it’s got to be Morris Chestnut. He’s also a great actor and could play the caring and ‘good guy’ role amazingly. Seeing him bond with foster mother, Claire, would be amazing. For Ayisha, I would love for Regina Hall to step in her shoes. She has great composure and I believe she’ll be able to evoke such an emotional roller-coaster that Ayisha experiences. Other potential actors would be: Karruche Tran, Vivia A. Fox, Terry Crews and Dennis Haysbert.
You’re stranded on an island, and only one character from any book can save you. Who are you picking?
If I was stranded on an Island, I would like Trey to save me. He’s patient, caring, strong and smart.
Besides being a writer, what else do you enjoy?
I enjoy travelling when I can, watching movies, working on myself as a person, decorating my nails, video games, going to different restaurants, cooking, baking and experimenting with different ingredients.
Do you have any upcoming book promotions?
I am currently working on a standalone. I’m aiming to release it the end of June or the beginning of July. I plan on travelling abroad to reach a wider audience at book festivals.
