Catherine penned her first novella at age twelve, and first
full-length manuscript at sixteen. After completing a
B.A., Double Major (First Class), in English and History
from the University of Victoria, B.C., Canada, she was
accepted into the post-graduate Works of Art Course run by
Sothebyâ€™s auctioneers in London, England, where she studied
centuries of history, antiques and fine art. She worked for
several years as an antique and fine art appraiser, which
inspired unique ideas for novels.
Prior to her first publishing contract, Catherineâ€™s
manuscripts finaled in thirty contests. She lives in
Florida with her husband, daughter, and two spoiled cats.
