About the Author

For nearly two decades, Catherine has given writing workshops in-person, online, and at conferences that help writers better understand the various craft elements of writing fiction to make a story a good read.
She believes knowing the pros and cons, the advantages and disadvantages, of the various techniques of storytelling actually liberates creativity and aids a writer in telling a far better story-a more marketable story-and a story readers are willing to buy and tell others about.
Her lighthearted science fiction short stories have appeared in hard cover and online anthologies and magazines. Her books include:

Hearts Akilter (fantasy/sci-fi romance novella)
Jewels of the Sky (science fiction adventure)
Karma & Mayhem (paranormal fantasy romance-
being rereleased in 2017)
Adrada to Zool (a short story anthology)

Catherine lives on a farm nestled in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains of Western Pennsylvania. In the quiet of the countryside, she writes fantasy, futuristic, and paranormal stories where a reader can escape to other worlds for adventure and romance.
