About Catherine

Catherine believes that story is the deepest kind of magic there is. She is the author of several fantasy books, including Breakwater, Fire Dancer, and The Singing Serpent. She loves getting lost with fairies in the forests of Upstate South Carolina, playing board games with her husband Brendan, and cuddling with her three cats: Mildred, Minerva, and Moo.
