When I'm not crafting scenes, I teach writing workshops. I also love to draw, travel, read spicy romance, sci-fi and thrillers. My time is spent between NYC and my Catskills studio, where I enjoy the sounds of birds, bullfrogs and coyotes.
I also write YA as Catherine Stine. My YA futuristic thriller, Fireseed One won finalist spots in both YA and Science Fiction in the 2013 USA Book News International Book Awards, and was an Indie Reader Approved notable book. My YA Refugees, earned a New York Public Library Best Book. Ruby's Fire, the new companion novel to Fireseed One, is receiving high praise from reviewers. I'm a member of RWA, SCBWI and SFWA.
I love reading, of course, and live music, and I'm always up for a trip. I've been to China, Russia, India, Turkey, you name it! Traveling is romantic--just grab a suitcase, your love, your journal, a cuppa joe and a daydream.
