Cas Peace

Amazon UK Bestselling author Cas Peace was born and brought up in the lovely county of Hampshire in the UK. On leaving school, she trained for two years before qualifying as a teacher of equitation. During this time she also learned to carriage drive. She then spent thirteen years in the British Civil Service before moving to Rome, Italy, where she and her husband Dave lived for three years. They have recently retired and relocated to South Devon, UK.

As well as her love of horses, Cas is mad about dogs; especially lurchers. She has had four rescue lurchers: Emma and Ria, Milly and Milo, plus Dalmatian Daisy and blue roan Cocker Spaniel Pepper. Cas loves country walks, working in stained glass, growing cacti, and folk singing. She is currently working on writing and recording songs or music for each of her fantasy books, five of which are available to download (free!) from her website, below. You can also find Cas on

Cas’s first novel in the triple-trilogy Artesans of Albia fantasy series, King’s Envoy, was awarded a HarperCollins Authonomy Gold Medal in 2008. The novel has since gone on to become an Amazon UK Bestseller, and was shortlisted for the 2015 BookViral Book Awards. Her second Artesans novel, King’s Champion, also appeared on Amazon UK’s Bestseller list. Her Artesans series has won the critical acclaim of US fantasy, sci-fi and non-fiction author Janet Morris, as well as IX series author Andrew P Weston. Cas contributed to the 2015 Janet Morris-edited anthology HEROIKA 1: Dragon Eaters, the 2020 anthology HEROIKA 2: Skirmishers, and also had a short story published in the British Fantasy Society’s 40th Anniversary anthology, Full Fathom Forty.
