Meet Cassandra Economos
Cassandra Economos is the main character in The Rock Star’s Wife series. She describes her life in intimate detail in a series of diaries.
Born in March 1979 in Sterling, IL, she’s part of a strict, bilingual Greek family who, at times, can be overbearing, if not dysfunctional. She is the youngest child of Daria and Demetrios Economos and the sister of Chris, Greg and Vanessa.
High School Years
Cassie loves music more than most people, and her favorite band is Nirvana. She has a crush on Kurt Cobain and wears grunge and band t-shirts almost daily.
Her greatest dream is to move to Chicago, much to her family’s chagrin as they want her to get a degree and work at Costas’ Place, the family restaurant.
Everything Cassie knows about sex she learned from health class and erotica books. The books give her unrealistic expectations about sex and relationships, but they also create a new hobby for her — writing dirty little stories.
After graduation, she and Jen pierce their bellybuttons.
After becoming Sterling High School salutatorian, Cassie attends the University of Illinois on a full-ride scholarship, rooming with Kelly. The goal is to work in HR and move to Chicago after obtaining her degree.
While in college, Cassie works a series of retail jobs before landing a position in an office.
Cassie gradutes with a bachelor’s degree and accepts the position of assistant manager of human resources at Jordan Dairy Farms in Vienna-on-the-Lake.
