BIO

BIO This is my formal introduction as not just a new author but one that will always be remembered as the “One That Overcame”! My name is Cassandra McClinton and I am happy to be alive. I have been dreaming of becoming a writer since as long as I can remember. That along with becoming a World Renowned Pastor and Singer/Songwriter. Hey there is still time for those things as long as the blood runs warm in my veins those things will come to pass as well. But for now, I am going to give what I write the best that I have and then some. I have chosen this path because of the call on my life to finally do so. I have gone through hell and back to get to where I am now and I could not write anything but my life story. Well the beginning of it anyway. I have to write the things that happened to me from a child to this point through a series of books that will make up the Life Broken brand.

The title of this book alone helps me to wear my badge as an Overcomer. Of which and for which I can only give glory to God for bringing me from that point into this one that I live now. My prayer is that many are helped by reading about the things that my perseverance and belief, total faith in God has brought me through. I never thought that I would get a chance to sit and write because of the many obstacles that had tried to consume my life and ultimately kill me. But I do thank so many of the people in my life for their contributions to LIFE BROKEN – JOURNEY OF AN OVERCOMER and that is whether their contributions to my life were good or bad, great or small, for me or against me, everything worked together for my good. The pain that the enemy caused in my life simply became my gain. My enemies tried to destroy me but I am still standing. I am a 46 year old African American and part American Indian female born in 1968 to a mother that gave her all and a father that felt that since I was out of sight, I was literally out of mind. Well that is until he was reminded that while raising other women’s children that he still had only one biological one that  he did not provide for. But I managed to come through my crazy childhood damaged but alive. I had my own children, four gifted and outgoing rebels and married early on in my life. Choosing to raise not only my children, but many of my then husband’s families’ children and my brother’s daughter all together in one house for over 15 years was a challenge and time that deserves it’s own book. That will be released soon, called LIFE BROKEN – RAISING OTHER FOLK’S KIDS. I trust that you will enjoy. I also hold an Associate’s Degree in the Science of Business Administration from Western International University. And I am a few credits shy of my Bachelor’s degree in the same area of concentration. Writing has always been my strong suit and now I am doing what I really love to do. I pray that you enjoy, learn, associate, like, dislike, laugh, cry, get damn angry, feel the joy, the hurt, work through the confusion and messiness, fight and come through the struggle with me through my life story, my series of accounts from my life. Telling and sharing how I have felt but was never able to share until now. My books are not for the faint at heart but for those that are ready to come out of their own personal situations a little singed by the smoke but smelling like pure victory. It is not pretty but it’s a story that had to be told just the same. And stay tuned for the rest of the series to come a book at a time after LIFE BROKEN – JOURNEY OF AN OVERCOMER. Thank you again for sharing in my pain and gain, my life.
