Like any happy family, the Georgetown View is always pleased to add a new member to the fold. This month, we are delighted to officially introduce a new writer, Cassidie Cox, to our readers.
Cassidie was born in Austin and raised in Leander but, having spent time around Georgetown over the past two years with friends and family, it was inevitable that she grew to love it here as much as we do. She has also joined the River Rock Bible Church family in Georgetown; “I am happy to be learning more about the city, the people, and the whole area where I grew up,” she says.
Cassidie found her love of writing and her enthusiasm for talking to people with interesting stories while attending college. She has a degree in French and Global Studies from St. Edward’s University but, even before graduating, was engaged as a professional writer and translator for several businesses and schools.
She is also a standout on our writing staff as a published novelist. Her first book is already selling and she hopes to continue to write fun fantasy books for kids and young adults. “Now that I’m able to get to know my community and write about it,” Cassidie says. “I have found new loves. Among them is telling uplifting and fun stories about charities, families, and everyday heroes.”
You will likely see Cassidie around Georgetown where there is art, movies, music, and books. She also likes to eat and drink in new places and explore around town.
More than anything, she says, she is very excited to be writing for the Georgetown View. “Getting to know all the fun, funny, and uplifting stories being made in this community is an exciting new chapter. Telling a story is only as good as the story to tell and I can’t wait to learn more.”
Our editorial board is delighted to have an energetic writer like Cassidie join our staff. She has a joyful curiosity about people and places and we look forward to sharing her work with you in this issue and many to come.
