Meet the Author

Catherine Spencer fell into writing by happy accident. Approaching menopause and ready for a change of career while she could still walk and chew gum at the same time, she eavesdropped on a conversation about writing for Harlequin and decided this was too good a challenge to pass up. With the blithe ignorance of a non-swimmer leaping into a shark-infested pool, she resigned from her job as a high school English teacher and fired off her first submission to Harlequin Mills & Boon's editorial staff. Although her first two submissions were rejected, the third effort made the grade. Since then, she's sold over 25 books. Her books have been translated into more than 17 languages and distributed in nearly 30 foreign markets.

Catherine is married and lives with her husband in White Rock, a small seaside community south of Vancouver, British Columbia. She has four grown children, five grandchildren, two dogs and a cat, all of which are perfect! She has yet to find the perfect house, though, and despite repeated promises never to do so again, continues to persuade her husband to undertake renovations which always turn out to be more extensive and costly than she envisaged.

Catherine loves to hear from her readers and can be contacted through her website at: www.catherinespencer.com; or via regular mail at P.O. Box 45068, Ocean Park R.P.O., Surrey, BC, V4A 9L1, Canada, or P.O. Box 1713, Blaine, WA 98231, U.S.A.

    An excellent book by a very good writer! This is an enjoyable love story without most of the usual bickering, revenge, disrespect, or misunderstanding so common in many of the books written today. It was a pleasant change to have mature adults honestly trying to deal with their problems in a thoughtful, caring way. This is a book worth keeping for future reading enjoyment and well worth the money.

    great book

    Another great book from Catherine Spencer, The Italian's Convenient Wife is an emotionally involving story that never falls into romance novel cliches. The main characters, as well as the supporting cast of secondary characters, are fully realised people with whom the reader can identify. Callie and Paolo meet again after a family tragedy has orphaned their niece and nephew. Paolo quickly realises that Callie is no longer the naive young girl he met nine years before, but he is also no longer the careless playboy who broke her heart. The story has dimensions not always seen in short romances. There is no pointless bickering masquerading as conflict. Paolo and Callie are two mature adults who work through their grief for their dead brother and sister, and try to establish a stable home for the two children, as well as caring for Paolo's aging parents. The ending is logical, satisfying, and heartwarming. A great summer read.
