Cathryn is the author of sixteen psychological thrillers and the ALEXANDRA MALLORY series, featuring a sociopath you can’t help but love. Readers have called the series “addictive”.

The things that cause torment in real life—obsession and revenge, guilt and envy and longing—are endlessly fascinating in fiction and she never grows tired of writing stories about characters struggling to overcome the worst.

Cathryn also writes ghost stories because who knows what lies beyond our senses—The Haunted Ship Trilogy and the Madison Keith series of novellas.

When she’s not writing, she’s usually reading, walking on the beach, or playing golf, going way out of her way to avoid hitting her ball in the sand or the water. She lives on the Central Californ

Novel Excerpt: The Secret She Kept

Prologue: Nadia

Rich people love their private parks with huge trees and smooth paths where they can go for long morning runs. Just the fact they have time to run for miles proves how they live in a different world from everyone else. Normal people don’t have time to put on silky leggings and tops the color of ice cream, plug Sci-Fi buds into their ears that cost half a month’s rent, and breath

Cathryn and 763 other people liked Yun's review of Daisy Darker:
Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney
"I don't get it. So many readers loved this, but Daisy Darker has got to be one of the most boring thrillers I've ever read.

Why is this so boring, you ask? I'll tell you why. (Note: this is a bit of a rant, so if you loved it, please don't read this.)" Read more of this review »

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..”
John Milton, Paradise Lost

“The most important lesson I’ve learned as a writer is that practice of the art is something I must exercise every day. The reason for this constant training is that any idea worth discovering is bigger than my head. The twists and turns, story and plot, characters and character development of a novel cannot be held in a single thought or even in a train of thought. This novel takes up a lot of space and needs room to breathe and evolve.”
Walter Mosley, Twelve Steps Toward Political Revelation
