Jess Lake Hi Catherine! I absolutely love your Lost Continent series. I have read all of them about eight times. Are you planning to write any more for that series? I keep hoping!

Firefly is one of my favorite SF shows! I enjoy Castle, too. One of my favorite episodes is when Nathan Fillion dressed up as the Firefly captain for a Halloween party :-D.

Cathie, hello! Glad to hear you enjoyed it. :-)

Yes, I'm an artist. Mostly I draw for my own enjoyment. Scifi art is one of my favorite doodle topics.
