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, and the Arctic circle. Catherine has seen 6 types of whales in the wild, and lived her lifelong dream in January when she stood on deck in pajamas and a parka watching a pod of thirty orca in Antarctica's Gerlach Straits. 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 had a broken 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)

This year I’ve enjoyed the freedom of writing without a contract. If you’ve ever written to a deadline or from a proposal, you can imagine how amazing that feels.

Last January, I asked myself what do I want to contemplate this year? What do I want to research while I write? Is there a part of me that’s submerged and could be brought to the surface?

ART.

Until I went to college, I drew and painted... Read more of this blog post »

OMG.

Better than BEFORE THE FALL.
Better than BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.
Way better than THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10

Best thriller I've read in a long time.
