Brother. Dearest.

Catherines poem for Michael

You left me here all alone

Barely grown

And you have gone

Leaving me to go on

No more picnics

No more poems

No more smiles

No more home

I am the last of the family

That is it

Just me

Lonely

And crying

Part of my heart dying

With you not by my side

They said that you died

Without pain and without strife

But how can that be when someone ended your life

The knife to your heart

Also pierced mine

And no I am not fine

I am not okay

Though that is what they want me to say

My brother is dead

My dearest is gone

And I am left here all alone

With no will to go on

A poem for a girl who lost her beloved brother. The last of her family. A poem for Catherine. The sweet girl has never had it easy, and even the loss of her brother was not the final hardship of her life.

When Catherine meets a handsome man with a troublesome reputation her normal life begins to unravel. Dark forces claim her beau is not free to love her, and it brings a string of terrible murders to her door.
Will her ignorance of the supernatural world, again, leave her in danger as a new threat targets her?

Can Catherine live long enough to enter the world of the Wiccad?

My Fair Catherine – The Book Cover

I just finished the final edit on My Fair Catherine. Editing is hard. There is so much editing. I use the word ‘that’ too much… But I am so proud of what this book has transformed into. It’s so good. And I’m not the only one who thinks so…

So with just a few days to go, I thought you might want to know what to look for when you go looking for My Fair Catherine – City of the Wiccad: Episode 2.

We went through a lot more different concepts for this book cover and there wasn’t often agreement until we came up with the idea below. I am excited and I do love this look, it’s perfect for a Victorian Supernatural tale with love, drama, vampires, strong women, intrigue and revelations.

Countdown to ‘My Fair Catherine’ on Amazon

release date 7

A week to go. Yes, just a week to go until My Fair Catherine, the second episode of City of the Wiccad, is available for purchase and download on Amazon.

At Halloween, I released a little novelette on Smashwords and then on Amazon. A Victorian ghost story, An All Hallow’s Haunting. This was an introduction to Catherine. She was a teenager then but is now a grown woman as we join her story again. Danger again stalks her, trying to destroy not only her happiness but her life.

I have to admit I am giddy to have you meet Catherine again and begin this part of her story. And not just because it brings Jaidee and Balien into the books. But because Catherine is a wonderful character that I am loving watch transform and grow. She is having to question not only the world around her but who she truly is and the person she wishes to be. And she faces the conundrum that many of us face. Is it okay to need help, to ask for help, or must we always be our own saviour?

As someone who has battled many demons, including those that come with depression, finding myself, becoming who I want to be, I have struggled with that question as well. It is a struggle while society screams opposing views at us, very much so as a woman.

Catherine struggles no less with the concept. Especially as a woman in a time when most women had little power of their own.

The historical backdrop of City of the Wiccad provides modern context and lessons. The people you meet within the pages are relevant to us in the changing times we are part of; the struggles we as a society face.

Society has changed so much since the 1880’s and yet so much has not changed enough.

In My Fair Catherine within a historic and supernatural setting, you will find familiar struggles. So come join Catherine and I, on April 2nd. Perhaps you will find something to aid your journey and your own fight as well.
