Maya Rushing Walker

Welcome!

Maya Rushing Walker writes slow-burn, often romantic, literary fiction set in both historical and modern times, with a strong sense of place. She lives and writes in a 1780s farmhouse in northern New England, where she homeschooled four amazing young adults and was a dedicated swim and row mom. In a previous life, she was a U.S. diplomat and a Wall Street banker, and holds a B.S. in international economics from Georgetown and an A.M. in East Asian Studies from Harvard.

Her two books, The Portrait and Coming Home to Greenleigh, were previously published under her pen name, Cassandra Austen. They are available at all major online stores and by request at any bookstore. You can also read them for free if you request them through your local library or on your library's app! And if you purchase directly here through payhip, you will be supporting her directly. Thank you!
