Readers should expect different locales and deep emotions in Catherine Snodgrass's books. She believes that life is to be lived not watched--hiking a new path, learning a new skill, even conquering a life-long fear of singing in public to take a turn or two on the stage of the community theater. Her work as a paralegal in family and tax law has helped her tune in to the emotions of others and further deepen that aspect of her writing. Catherine lives in the beautiful desert of Southern California. Having set her children off in the world to explore their own paths, she has now been rewarded with a new generation whose imaginations bear evidence that the fruit didn't fall far from that particular tree. Catherine also writes erotic romance as Caitlyn Willows.
