Thankful Author - Casi McLean



It’s not our past, our possessions, or our status that truly matters in life, but rather who we are and how we touch the lives of others.
Casi McLean


I'm truly thankful to have two amazing sons, one beautiful daughter-in-law, the light of my life––my 2-year old grandson––and a bonus: my wonderful fiancé. To top it off, I live my dreams penning novels I love, and do motivational speaking to encourage others to find their passion and follow their dreams.

I write romantic suspense and mystery, stories with twists you'll never see coming. I love the excitement, the kind that takes your breath away, turns the genre on its head throwing a perfectly aimed, delightful curveball at a surprising and satisfying ending.

Real life isn't always that accommodating, but sometimes incidents you surmise would be awful, turn out to be positive, life-altering events. My life has taken many twists and turns. Unraveling secrets and lies in my past transformed beliefs I'd carried through childhood deep into my adult life. The discoveries profoundly changed who I am today. Like a butterfly who struggles with it's cocoon, my went through an amazing metamorphosis. 




So, oddly, I'm thankful for unexpected bumps my life endured. They led me to my passion and gave me unique insight into my niche. I've truly been blessed and I'm so thankful for the ability to live my dreams.
My published books include my memoir, Wingless Butterfly, five romantic suspense novelettes––my Destiny Series–– of course all include twists with a touch of supernatural, and my new release, Beneath The Lake.


Beneath The Lake is a time slip romantic suspense about the ghost town under Atlanta's famous man-made lake, Sidney Lanier. The lake is know to lure victims into a watery death ... but does it? When Lacey Montgomery's car hurls into the icy, black water, she awakens in the arms of a handsome stranger, in a town she's never heard of, 34 years before she was born. Watch the trailer here:





A ghost town time forgot ~ a romance your remember forever


My favorite quote:

"In everyone’s life, at some point, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit"
