(1)romance author:
Adeline Catherine was born and raised in Grants Pass, Oregon, USA. She always yearned to be a writer like her mother. The morning that one of her professors asked if she could use samples of Catherine’s creative writing on an overhead projector to teach was a dream come true. In 1988, she sold her first book to Harlequin Intrigue and went on to write three more before she tried her hand at a single-title historical romance. Nine books later, she did her first single-title contemporary.

Catherine married Sidney D. Anderson, an industrial electrician and entrepreneur. They had two sons, Sidney D. Jr. an

Tina was deaf, and through her I experienced what it might be like to be trapped in a world of silence. I fell wildly in love with this child. One day Tina's mother told me that she was thinking about putting Tina up for adoption, not because she didn't love Tina, but because she feared that she would be financially unable to get Tina the special education that she would need to live a normal and productive life. That night I approached my husband Sid about our adopting this precious little girl. Sid came to my classroom to meet Tina, and she immediately stole his heart. In the end, Tina's mother opted to keep Tina. I was sad, but also very glad. There was a striking family resemblance between Tina, her mother, and her grandmother. It would have been such a shame for Tina to grow up without knowing her actual relatives.

It is difficult to put my feelings for Tina into words. One morning I found her on the floor with a toy truck. As she pushed it back and forth, she pressed her face against it and made moaning, guttural sounds. I sat beside her and discovered that the truck vibrated when it moved. For perhaps the first time, Tina was "hearing" something. I was fascinated and overjoyed for her.

When Tina left my classroom, she took a part of my heart with her, and I vowed to myself that if I ever became a published writer, I would write a book about a deaf girl. There was so little public understanding of deafness at the time, and I hoped my novel would give readers a glimpse of how it might feel to live in silence.

Right around the time that Annie's Song was released, a new Miss America was crowned, and she was deaf. A film was also released about a deaf woman. I like to think it was a year that changed our world, making it a better place for the hearing impaired.(less)

I still have Esa Paxton's story to share, and I am giving serious consideration to writing another book in the Comanche series. More historicals will definitely be coming!(less)

MY SUMMER & FOURTH OF JULY

Well, how can I describe my summer thus far?  We put the farm on the market, and it sold.  We put Cinnamon Ridge on the market, and it also sold.  I was in the middle of finishing Mulberry Moon.  The buyer for the ridge was supposedly going to pay cash and pushing for an early closing and possession date.  The ridge has collected stuff behind my back over the fifteen years that we’ve lived here.
