Catherine Banks is the author of the Artemis Lupine Series, Little Death Bringer Series, Ciara Steele Novella Series, and the novel Daughter of Lions. She began writing fiction stories when she was only four years old and finished her first full length novel at the age of fifteen. Catherine is a Northern California native and has lived within a twenty mile radius her entire life. She plans to travel to as many places as possible in her thirties to make up for her lack of traveling experience. She is married to her soulmate and best friend, Avery, who blessed her with two amazing children. After her full time job she reads books, plays videogames and watches a lot of anime shows and movies with her family to relax.

Catherine Banks is currently not accepting new questions.

It's great to have freedom to do what I want in a story. Sometimes when I read a book I feel like there are events that I wish hadn't happened and when I write my books I get to decide if those events happen or not. (less)

Don't think about if people will like your book or if you're good at writing or not, just write! Get those words on paper and get that story written! I recommend participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) to everyone, even those who think that they can't write, because it is fun and sometimes having that deadline can help you. People often don't finish a novel and I believe that the most important thing is just to write. You may never publish your first novel, but it will help you learn what works and what doesn't and practice helps everyone improve!(less)

I have alsostarted that annoyinghabit of reading a book and then stopping part way through it to start a new one. I'm hoping by the end of the week that I will have a couple book reviews for you. Two of the books I'm reading are really good so I don't doubt that I'll have them done by Friday. I downloaded s... Read more of this blog post »

“As he passed me, he leaned to Curran and handed him a paper fan folded from some sort of flyer.

Curran looked at the fan. “What?”
"An emergency precaution, Your Majesty. In case the lady faints.”

Curran just stared at him.

Raphael strode toward the Pit, turned, flexed a bit, and winked at me.

"Give me that,” I told Curran. “I need to fan myself.”
"No, you don’t.”
