'I was born in Spain, and even though I am very proud of my Mediterranean roots, growing up between Canada and Europe taught me that there are different ways of living, learning, interpreting, and loving. I am fluent in five languages, so I have always felt I was from the world-said with open arms-. I belong to my family and friends, because we belong to those who love us.' Caterina writes stories, poems and love letters from Southern California, where she lives with her husband, children and dogs.
Writing Roots & Style
My Mediterranean heritage and Canadian upbringing have always been a source of inspiration for me, and it shows in my characters.
I like a good story that will haunt the reader for days and weeks. I love to write stories in a historical setting, but I feel passionate as well about giving a voice to those who do not have one. This is my next project, and it is directly related to California's migrant reality and the drama that so many families go through to give their children a better life here in the US.
What I Read & What I am Writing
My father always said 'read authors, not books.' I learned to value authors for what they offer as a whole, as a person, for everything they have lived through and for what they bring of themselves to their work.
I am a seeker of precious jewels and an avid reader of world literature. This is why I started my literary blog called 'Writer's Loom' where I share my thoughts on different genres and aspects of the writing craft, as well as giving resources for English teachers and of future writers. I would love for you to take a look at www.writersloom.wordpress.com
