Totally Charmed : Demons, Whitelighters and the Power of 3
Catherine Spangler fell in love with romance from the moment her parents began reading to her. She teethed on fairy tales, then moved on to Nancy Drew, Louisa May Alcott, O. Henry, Sherlock Holmes, Mary Stewart, Victoria Holt, then on to romance greats such as Kathleen Woodwiss and Joanna Lindsey.
She also discovered fantasy and science fiction. Her interest in SF romance was probably sparked by her family's deep involvement with the space program. She grew up in Huntsville, Alabama,and her father worked for NASA, on Redstone Arsenal, where Werner Von Braun headed up the space program.
However, Catherine's first and foremost love was romances, and she began writing them at the age of thirteen. As an adult, a series of dreams inspired her to begin writing futuristics. Her debut book, SHIELDER, won the Emily, and the FF&P's On The Far Side, as well as being a Maggie and Golden Heart finalist, before it was published. Since publication, it's been a HOLT Medallion finalist, and won both the Aspen Gold and the Laurel Wreath awards. SHIELDER also won a P.E.A.R.L. Honorable Mention in the Futuristic category.
Since then, four more futuristics have been published. You can also find a short story SHIELDERS - THE LEGEND OF DESTINY on her web site as a gift to readers.
She is now writing for Berkley and working with editor Cindy Hwang. She currently is working on a new paranormal series, with the first book, TOUCHED BY DARKNESS, coming out in January 2007.
Currently, Catherine lives in Richardson, Texas (just a tad north of Dallas), with her husband, two teenagers, three cats and one thoroughly rotten dog. She works in accounting by day and creates new worlds by night.
