“When I think about it, I’ve always been a writer to some extent. At times that meant writing in my journal as a child, preparing mini skits for production as a teen studying Telecommunications, and now as an author. I realized that being an author was something that I could do, must do, and will continue to do after enduring a major, drawn-out tragedy. Writing was my defense and my coping mechanism. It helped me live and survive. Therefore, through tragedy something beautiful blossomed, a rekindled love and career within this art form. With words, my aim is to educate, entertain, and inspire. I hope you enjoy this little piece of me!”
Mira Cassidy is an Indianapolis native who, from a young age, found peace and serenity in writing. A love for the art form blossomed in 2015 when she went back to complete her degree after an eleven-year hiatus. There, she took additional English and creative writing courses. During those semesters, the depth of her creativity was unlocked, and she produced some of her first short stories.
As a teen, she received the opportunity to continue her studies in Telecommunications via the local Youth Video Institute where she developed a foundation in video production, directing, editing, and journalism. This experience allowed her to interview and meet many individuals from different walks of life including a very young Nick Cannon, David Hollister, and Suzanne Taylor.
Today, Mira is a very busy and devoted mother of three. She uses her voice to raise awareness to the pain and suffering caused by domestic violence and advocates for more funding and focus to be brought into area schools to service children who are exceptional learners. Currently, Mira is completing the production of her next project, a book of short stories, entitled Bounce Back from Tragedy, named after the blog of her self-titled website, coming early 2019.
