About the Book

A nameless girl, who dwells in the small New England town of Paper Falls, recalls a mysterious autumn experience. One October night, a storm lashes through the quaint little village, leaving behind a cold and eerie mess of trees and fog. The girl, a lonely connoisseur of imagination, takes a stroll to the graveyard the morning after, carefully passing the disheveled white house that stands near the graveyard’s front gates. An old woman who lives inside has remained a mystery to the girl for years, as well as to the town, but after a series of enchanting events, the girl comes face-to-face with the woman who encourages her not to waste her gifts of perception, expression, and words.

About the Author

Kate Catalina was raised in western Massachusetts where the inspiration of the four seasons played a significant role in her development as a writer. As a documented descendant of Mayflower passenger Edward Doty, Catalina found interest in British literature, customs, and history at a young age upon discovery of her ancestry. Aside from finding interest in the works of New England writers and poets like Cummings, Poe, Hawthorne, and Plath, Catalina’s talents extend into a realm of music and performance art that ultimately took her down a rock and roll path of Vegas nightlife, and a lengthy, soon-to-be-written recap of life backstage and on the road with some of rock’s biggest names. Much of Catalina’s writing carries comparable themes to those of her influencers, bringing a compact dose of gothic/romantic mood, unique sentence structure, and crisp organization of words to her work. Amongst her many writing credits includes a background in music journalism, and songwriting; and, in 2013, Catalina completed her education in creative writing at Exeter College at University of Oxford (UK) through OUDCE. She continues to inspire young writers and artists with the mantras like “Good writing is honest writing," "Truth is important." Visit KateCatalina.com to learn more.
