More About the Author

Cassie Oakman was born in Sussex, and after living and studying in Paris, Oxford and various other places, she is now settled in a peaceful village only a few miles from where she grew up. She divides her working life between writing and teaching, and spends her leisure time with her family.

The Skywatchers series is a sequence of novels set in a world where fanatics are using aggression and terror to impose their own religious beliefs. The peaceful moonfollowers and sunservers tread a precarious path between dying for their faiths and betraying their principles. Although there is no way to return to the gentle life that has been swept away from them, an unlikely group of people, from a politician to a dancing slave girl, from a merchant to a retired bard, are summoned together to try to defeat the bigots and bring about a newly tolerant world.

Although set in an imaginary land, far from ours in both space and time, the need to overcome intolerance and create a world order based on something more enlightened than the use or abuse of power, weaves a metaphor that resonates with our own age.

Brightly Shines the Darkness (Book 1 in the Skywatchers series) was published in January 2013.

Distant my Companions (Book 2) was published in August 2013.

Sombre Glows the Sun (Book 3) was published in February 2014.

Strangers, My Kin (Book 4) was published in September 2014.

The fifth and final book in the series is due for publication in September 2015.

For a change of pace from working on the Skywatchers series, Cassie is writing a suspense novel set in the twentieth century, and on a collection of short stories.
