RELEASE DAY, Half Empty

It's HERE!

Book two in the First Wives series is finally here. I hope that you love Trina and Wade's story as much as I loved writing it.

Ethan's attraction to Lauren blooms the first time he sees her. As they grow closer, he realizes she is hiding something, but never expects her secret to be a ghostly stalker.

Shelly Kotalik Hi Catherine!

We don't know eachother but you sent a request to me to be my friend, so I thought: what the heck, why not!? Perhaps you made a mistake? Oh well, the more the merrier. I see you read and enjoyed the Circle Trilogy from Nora Roberts. Me, too. Tremendously! Ah, what's not to like about a steamin' hot vampire? heh heh.


Catherine I'm really not sure how to navigate this site. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
