Cate is a writer of historical romance…and is also a professional pediatric nurse who recently added a new position to her life’s resume—retired. She lives in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains of Northeast Tennessee with her husband and two demented Siamese cats. With her husband, a retired U.S. Navy officer, she lived and traveled widely, not only throughout the United States, but also Canada, Mexico, and lovely England. With her husband and daughter, she spent several years living in her favorite American city, Charleston, SC, which provides the setting for her first three novels and settings for the fourth. For a girl who grew up to become a registered nurse, she has been interested in history since . . . always. What's her favorite t ...more

I have the title for the book, know who the cast of characters are, the settings for the book, the gist of the story and how I want it to end. The trouble is that the characters aren't cooperating to get their story down on paper. So they're still in my mind. One day soon I'll write a series of paragraphs and the book will begin to click into place in my mind. I love the process, but it's frustrating to deal with recalcitrant characters!(less)

I love to read, and re-imagine stories I read containing scenes I'm less fond of. How would I change them to make them more interesting? There is always something to learn. This is chiefly why I like writing historicals. Nevertheless, my eyes were opened from writing a contemporary with so many features to it, including a British Navy officer and a deployment to the Barents Sea. It also included the preservation of a book penned in the early to mid 6th century. I had four chief questions about the preservation of such a book. Chief among them was such a thing even possible? It turns out that it is! My source was an expert in the field, a dear lady at the Bodleian Library at Oxford University who took time from her busy day to answer each one of my questions. As I say, there is always something new and fascinating to learn.(less)
