Here’s a link to my reading at The Story Hour last week. I read True Companion and Empress Dark, both of which are available in my short story collection The Devil’s Wingman and Other Stories.
The Wrath of Horus and the Carlo Borgia novella The Lady’s Step are well underway. More information soon.
Catherine’s Ko-fi Shop is live! Here, you can order personalized copies of my paperbacks, with complementary swag. Ordering from the sites below are great ways to get my books as well, but if you want an extra touch, consider ordering from me directly.
Another Ko-fi feature will be you can subscribe monthly. Buying me a black rose for $3 is a much appreciated one time donation, but if you buy me a dozen roses, by subscribing for a whole year, you’ll be entitled to special posts and information from me and my characters. Hope you’ll visit!
I’m also at Wattpad, where I am currently posting The Vessel of Ra for free, if you’re interested in being part of the discussion.

At thirteen years old, Abigail Rath knows she is a lean, mean, monster-hunting machine, just like her mom and dad. After all, she’s learned everything she knows from the horror movies her dad has starred in. When her best friend Vince comes to her with news he’s being stalked by a vampire, her professional opinion is they should go out and stake him.
It turns out that Abby’s monster hunting parents haven’t been entirely straightforward with Abby about what being a monster hunter means. Alarmed at Abby’s behavior, Abby is grounded and both Abby and her parents try to introduce more normalcy into Abby’s life. At the same time, odd things start happening at school to Abby’s friends. What should Abby do about the new supernatural creatures in her life, now that she doesn’t know exactly what the rules are? How can she protect her friends and her family without continually getting detention? And how will she survive her mother taking her to the mall?
Praise for Abigail Rath Versus Bloodsucking Fiends
That Abigail Rath. What an imagination. –Lee Christopher, Star of The Reincarnation of Dracula
What a consummate professional Abigail Rath is. I couldn’t imagine a better book with me in it. –Reginald Rath, Star of Die, Murder Bat! and Die Again, Murder Bat!
I don’t remember it going down quite like this.–Vince Cooper, Monster Hunter.
Monster hunting is a tradition in the Rath family, and Abigail Rath has learned the hard way that there are monsters and there are monsters. Right now, the monsters aren’t as big a problem as turning fourteen and noticing Nigel Graham, a boy at her new school. Nigel seems ordinary, compared to her monster hunting friends, although he’s insufferably arrogant, in a kind of ridiculously attractive and infuriating way.
Still, public school is working out well, her best friend Vince is showing her the ropes, and Abby is looking to make her mark. Her new science teacher suggests getting involved with the science fair, and Abby embraces her project with a zeal second only to her mom’s. Nigel is her chief competition, but Abby is sure she can best him. When other students begin losing their intellects, and Nigel reveals a secret lab at the school, Abby is sure he’s up to something sinister. Can Abby juggle winning the science fair, solving the mystery of lost intelligences, and discovering the secret identity of the mad genius known as Dr. Danger? Yeah, she’s pretty sure she can.
