Probably more than a seed of Cat's influence in "Calamity Cash" - few people I knew exposed me to strong female protagonists as much as she did. Along with being a talented and accomplished ballroom dancer, she's also a lawyer now, working out of the nation's capitol - practically in my backyard [well, like Massachusetts is New York's backyard]. But that doesn't mean she's put down the pen, or stepped away from the keyboard. She keeps a travel blog, to chronicle her oft-indulged wanderlust on the blog "intra'cat'inental" with new stuff posted each time she takes to the road.
She's also got a site strictly for her fiction, which I'd also encourage you all go check out. The url is http://unhingedsoul.wordpress.com and I think - I think - she just might be looking for some feedback.
"How can we know the dancer from the dance?"
Almost need a detective to figure that one out, eh Kitty?

Out of gas, low on ammo, and with their backs against the wall, Calamity and Mama Cash become the town's unlikely protectors, but with friends so quickly becoming enemies, and old enemies becoming friends, is the whole place doomed to burn? And will our heroines be the ones to light the first match? A modern-day action/adventure western with words by Randall Nichols, and art by Justin Cornell.
