Hi Courtney:
Thank you so much for your kind and flattering words. Catherine fans are in luck because Catherine and Liam have become somewhat of a brand for me. My next book, a sequel, "Saving Sophie" will be released on September 15th, and while Liam is a bit more prominent than Catherine, both are principal characters. Next year some time, my third book, presently titled "Karolina's Twins" will feature Catherine prominently. All three books will follow their relationship. Let me know how you like them. Best regards,
Ron(less)

“Find a reason to turn your nose up at a culture, to denigrate a people because they are different, and it's not such a giant leap from ethnic subjugation to ethnic slaughter”
Ronald H. Balson, Once We Were Brothers

“It’s another reminder of what can happen when evil is allowed to incubate. Find a reason to turn your nose up at a culture, to denigrate a people because they’re different, and it’s not such a giant leap from ethnic subjugation to ethnic slaughter.”
Ronald H. Balson, Once We Were Brothers

“The sad fact is this—both sides are victims to the terrorists. As President Peres said, ‘The Arabs are not Israel’s enemy. The terrorists are the enemies of both of us.’ And the consequence is further polarization of the two peoples, which, of course, serves the terrorists’s goals.”
Ronald H. Balson, Saving Sophie: A Novel
