About Ada Bright & Cass Grafton















Ada Bright

An avid reader of novels of all kinds, Ada’s habit for finishing a book in a sitting is to blame for her strong prescription eyeglasses. Nothing gives her more simple and pure joy than getting lost in a story.

In college, she majored in both English and Art and has continued to be indecisive about which pursuit rules her time. While working as a customer service representative for trucking software, she wrote instructional material. Then, she spent ten very fulfilling years building a photography business before deciding to semi-retire, partner with Cass Grafton, and write a novel. Ada is a member of the Romance Writers of America.

She was born and raised in Southern California and hasn’t really spent more than a few weeks anywhere else… ever. She prefers temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit and gets a big kick out of rain. She lives with her mother who enables her book addiction shamelessly, a wonderfully hilarious husband and three very silly and earnest children. Recently they all adopted a cat named Silver Charm aka Willow Sweet Pea… Ada calls her Kitty.

Cass Grafton

A fan of Jane Austen’s works since her long-distant school days, Cass has been indulging her appetite for all things Austen for many years. Having long wanted to be a writer, the two passions came together in recent years, and she began publishing her endeavours. A Fair Prospect, a Pride & Prejudice-inspired Regency romance, was released in three volumes in 2013 under the name of Cassandra Grafton.

Cass then went on to be part of the co-writing team on The Darcy Brothers, another Austen-inspired historical novel, before settling down to co-write with one of her best friends.

The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen, a contemporary mystery/romance, was released in 2016.

A former college lecturer and then PA, she is British born and bred (though she did live in the USA for five years). Cass has two grown up children and splits her time between Switzerland, where she lives with her husband, and England, where she lives with her characters.

She is a member of the Romance Novelists’ Association and the Society of Authors.
