Catherine Stine is a USA Today bestselling author of historical and urban fantasy, and paranormal romance. Her novels have earned Indie Notable awards and New York Public Library Best Books for Teens. Catherine's newest historical fantasy, Witch of the Wild Beasts, was a second prize winner in Valley Forge's 2019 RWA Sheila Contest.

She loves spending time with her beagle, writing about supernatural creatures, gardening on her deck, and meeting readers at book events. Catherine suspects her love of dark fantasy came from her father reading Edgar Allen Poe to her when she was a child.

When I am stuck on a plot snag, I simply wait it out until I come up with a solution. And when I finish a novel draft, I always take a break to refresh. That said, I am not as fast a writer as many indies are these days! I am getting faster, though. LOL.

The secret to pushing past "writer's block" can often be to sit down and write. (less)

NA is targeted for the 18 to 28 year-old audience, though many adults read it too! It got its start with successful NA indie authors, such as Abbi Glines and Tammara Webber, and has been popular enough to attract traditional publishers such as Harper Collins.

Most NA novels so far have been set in contemporary and college settings. As with any growing trend though, the NA market is expanding to new territories--to fantasy, historical and even sci-fi. One constant hallmark is a focus on romance, or the love interest, though the "steam" levels can vary a lot.

I have a new adult series called The Art of Love (written as Kitsy Clare), which is set in the NYC art world with new art school graduates. I am now working on a paranormal historical, set in 1932. So, I would love to see the boundaries of NA grow!

Some say it has taken the place of chick lit, which focused on the twenty-something market. The bottom line is that yes, it is a "thing" but who knows how it will evolve? It will be fun to watch.(less)

Viviana MacKade's Fall Book Fair Hop, Sept 3-7


Viv's Fall Book Fair Hop starts September with a bang!

This amazing Fall Book Fair hop brings me back to my own blog, after a long hiatus to write (I finished two novels and a novella - phew!) and to raise and train my beagle pup to the one-year mark, where he is  more mature and independent. Say hi, Benny.

I hope you enjoy this hop, as it has a genre for just about everyone - contemporary, Read more of this blog post »

“Marisa starts to snoop. I might as well too. It's not often that I get to visit a water pellet company in a freaky refugee nation. -from Fireseed One”
Catherine Stine

“The sun, through the filter of the trees, glints green off the cells of her suit, outlines her soft curves. I’m overcome with visions of my father poring over his books, and the wet, verdant forest floor, and newts pausing over toxic yellow candy, and leaves flying up from the impact of Bryan’s body hitting the ground. Another, confused part of me hears my father’s voice calling the refs scum, trash, slime. With flashes of fury at Marisa, mixed with a sad, all-consuming longing that feels dangerously like love, I pluck her hands from my face and push her away. -from Fireseed One”

“I turned my peeled-apple face to him. I'd make myself look at him. I owed him that. His touch lingered on my neck as though he'd left a handprint of melted light.”

A. K. Fotinos-Hoyer I love hearing about the many experiences people have had with Berlin - it seems like everyone I meet has either visited, or plans to :D It's still a great city!


Catherine Stine Thanks, Rosa!

Rosa Hello Catherine, thank you for the friend request. Your YA novel sounds intriguing, can't wait to find a copy :)


Kelly/yllektra Thanks for adding me! :)


Beverly McClure Thanks for the friend request, Catherine. So nice to see you here. :)


W.H. Jr. Catherine;

I noticed that you are an author - but I see no information on your books on this web page. I think it might be good for your books to post something about them at least on your bio.

Just another suggestion and it will not cost you anything. Have you thought about joining The American Author's Association (AAA). They still have free membership. It is a 2,000 plus author organization that can help market your books or at least allow you to network with other authors.

I am the founder of that organization which is now I believe one of the largest writer's groups in north America. Go to their web site and check it out. The new President is a wonderful lady in San Diego named Maria Edwards - contact her and ask about joining.
