Kassandra Flamouri

Kassandra Flamouri’s storytelling career began at the age of three with “Squirm the Worm,” which was warmly received by an audience of assorted beetles in rural New Jersey (yes, “rural New Jersey” does actually exist).

Now, as an exam prep tutor and budding college planning counselor, she has time to devote to her first love, writing.
