About Catherine

Catherine believes that story is the deepest kind of magic there is. She loves getting lost with fairies in the forests of Upstate South Carolina and playing with her two flerkens, Mildred and Minerva, who pretend to be ordinary cats. She’s watched Parks and Rec more times than she should admit and consumes entirely too much tea.
