I realized recently that some of my favorite beings have names beginning with the letter C. I swear I didn’t plan this, and I think it could make for a great blog series, when I get around to it. Especially the travel piece. Maybe next year? But I’m getting ahead of myself.
My own name, as you may have noticed, is Catherine. I don’t count myself as one of the Three C’s—but I suppose I could. Four C’s doesn’t sound as cool though.
My dog’s name is Christie—short for “Christie, The Christmas Pup.” (She comes with a story of her own.) Well into her eleventh year, we’ve been a tight team since she first crawled up my leg like a little kitten when she was a tiny six weeks old. She came into my life in the earliest moments of a long period of pain in my life and having her little heartbeat and loving personality was a blessing time without number.
My horse’s name is Clara—she came with this name. Meeting Clara truly was a love at first sight experience and we’re about to celebrate our third year of partnership bliss in January. If you’ve never been in love with a horse before, I highly recommend it. Horses invite you into a slower, surer world with gentle, knowing eyes and whisper soft muzzles. You can’t be in tune with your horse if you are divided in your mind, heart, or soul. They have this miraculous way of bringing balance and peace in the midst of a noisy, fractured world.
Last but not least, comes Cosmo. Cosmo may seem an unlikely addition to the Three C’s—but he provides a sense of safety with the promise of adventure without even breaking a sweat. He’s an easy to maneuver home on wheels making it easy for the aforementioned C’s and I to travel around the country seeking adventure, horse shows, conferences, and the occasional independent bookstore. Sure, he has a lot of parts, and he can be rather cranky and complicated (usually late at night during inclement weather.) Other than that, he’s the perfect gentleman.
As I contemplate the vast expanse of a brand-new year tucked inside a brand-new decade, I’m looking forward to whatever lies around that next bend in the road. The Three C’s and I hope to see you down the road in 2020. We’d love to hear about your travel and adventure plans for the new year—online or in person!
The newest Jo Oliver Thriller!
|Greetings Jo Oliver fans! |
I am thrilled to announce that Capsized by Death, book 4 of the Jo Oliver thriller series, is coming out in just a few weeks!
This latest edition pairs my favorite female police chief with my favorite island. Turns out there’s a lot that can go wrong in paradise—but nothing that a few good, armed and specially trained friends can’t handle.
Capsized by Death was a lot of fun to write and once again, the writing process took me completely by surprise as unexpected developments and new characters emerged. Many of you know that my first three novels were largely written during solo vacations on Maui, so it seemed fitting that at least one of Jo’s adventures would lead her to my favorite Hawaiian island.
I am inviting a small group of dedicated Jo Oliver fans to join me for a pre-release reading and reviewing event. Would you like to join our merry band of reviewers? Please reach out to me and I will send more information. Book reviews are our bread and butter as authors and my goal is to procure fifty reviews in the next fifty days.
Watch for sample chapters to be posted on my website in the next week or so.
