Catherine Linka was almost thrown out of boarding school for being “too verbal.” Fortunately, she learned to channel her outspokenness and creative energy into writing. A passionate traveler she loves to visit wild landscapes like Iceland, the Amazon, Patagonia and the Arctic circle. Catherine has seen 6 types of whales in the wild, and lived her lifelong dream when she stood on deck in pajamas and a parka watching orca in Antarctica's Gerlach Straits. Her next trip: Tasmania. She doesn’t believe in fate, but she did fall in love with her husband on their first date when he laced up her boots, because she'd broken her hand.

Well, you are a wattpad.com reader, you can find my short novel, SPARROW'S STORY: A GIRL DEFIANT. ( If you've never tried wattpad, it's free and easy to sign up) Since we barely got to know Sparrow in A GIRL CALLED FEARLESS, this story sheds some light on why she did what she did. The other project I've been working on is consulting with the production team on a tv series for Fearless. The pilot script is being written now and with luck, the team will sell it to a network. Fingers crossed! I hope you like A GIRL UNDONE. I love how much Avie grows in this book! Happy Reading!(less)
Catherine Linka Like most writers, especially YA writers, there are so many, many people to thank that we write long acknowledgements and include them in our novels. …moreLike most writers, especially YA writers, there are so many, many people to thank that we write long acknowledgements and include them in our novels. In A Girl Called Fearless, mine is three pages long, because I had to include my writing mentors, my friends who cheered me on and everyone at St. Martin's who made the book a reality.

You'll see when you publish your book how many people you'll feel grateful to.(less)

Immersing in What You Love

A couple years ago, I was contemplating what to write next, so I asked myself how I wanted to spend the next year of my life. We writers immerse ourselves in the world we explore in our stories. Our work feeds off of what we love or what obsesses us.

Writing a book, for me at least, takes a year or two or three. And at the end, there’s no guarantee that book will sell to a publisher.

For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
