Dirty Ball by Cassandra George Sturges is the third book in the fantasy fiction mythological series Jungle Beauty Goddesses, preceded by book one, Pretty Blue Ball, and book two, Aquatic Ball. In this installment, the Jungle Beauty Goddess Afar is the star as her journey goes from youth through her evolution as an independent and dynamic deity—Goddess of Earth—and how she wields such an extraordinary responsibility and uninhibited power. As she sculpts and molds and creates, she finds that the one thing she cannot control is the free will of her creations...not their emotions, not their hearts. She also steps back and lets her children (the people of Earth) rule themselves, watching as they rise and fall by color and continent alongside her reluctant partner, Mada.
What is the hardest part of writing your books?
Preventing writer’s block by allowing myself to be the channel and vessel from which the story comes into existence on Earth’s plane in this dimension. I realize that in writing my Jungle Beauty Goddess Series I am not the storyteller, I am taking diction from the Universe. When I disagree with the story that is coming through to me—I get writer’s block. Yes, there have been many stalemates between the Universe and myself and that is why there are year gaps between each book. I try to negotiate to change the storyline to no avail. The second hardest part about writing is the necessary loneliness. I sequestered from my family and friends, and even when I am with them I 70 percent still living in my head taking diction from my imagination. The characters dominate my dreams and all of my quiet moments while waiting at lights, or standing in lines… I become so weird to say the least.
Lastly, the hardest part of writing for me is the depression that follows the completion of a book. It’s like saying good bye to your imaginary friends. I wonder if they are going to be okay while I am gone. I miss them, and I am struggling to reconnect to my current life of consciousness.
What songs are most played on your Ipod?
I love songs by Barry White, Never Gonna Give Ya Up, Love Serenade, I have so Much to Give; Waylon Jennings, I have Always been Crazy, Amanda, and Come With Me; Dolly Pardon – It’s All Wrong but it’s All Right; Jolene; Annie Lennox - “Why”; Bill Withers, “Ain’t No Sunshine” Drake, “Hotline Bling.” I love songs about love that tell a story no matter what Genre

How did you start your writing career?
I signed up to write before I incarnated into this body. Being a writer is very very difficult. You are living in between two worlds --the physical world where your body resides with all of its issues and life experiences; and in your imagination where you are communicating with muses and characters in another dimension. No one sane—choses a writing career in this dimension. The two worlds start to merge and you realize that you made an unconscious promise to exchange data between the 2 worlds.
If your creator asked you, “Are you happy? Have you enjoyed your stay on planet Earth?” What would you say? Book 4, explores these questions as well as the differences between the male and female earth suites (bodies) and why they exist from a sensuous, erotic, toe curling, mind blowing perspective . The story line will dance back forth between the mermaid’s role in the bubonic plague, and slavery, the history of witches and the possible demise of humans on Earth as we know it.
