About Cassie Rush
Hi there, my name is Cassie Rush and I’m a British author of cosy mysteries set in the English country- or seaside.
I absolutely love the coastal town of Southwold which is a short drive up the coast from where I live. It’s why I chose to set my popular, Eastwold by the Sea series there. Although my version of the town is entirely fictional as I like to move streets around. I hate it when an author sets a story somewhere you know well and gets details wrong, don’t you?
I have been a fan of Agatha Christie all my life and I adore the other golden age authors. I especially enjoy the stories of Miss Marple, Father Brown, Brother Cadfael and Lord Peter Wimsey.
I was really lucky at school (let’s not talk about how long ago that was though) to have brilliant and enthusiastic history teachers. It’s given me a lifelong love of history and all the tales that the past has to offer.
I also write as Caroline Goldsworthy—these books are rather darker with more graphic content.
