More About the Author

I love a good story, always have, I am an avid reader but I did not start out as a writer. I went to nursing school after high school. My dad thought I should have an occupation to sustain me in case other avenues in my life didn't work out; so I picked what sounded the most interesting. I worked at that for a few years off and on between family and other life events. Then one day I recognized the incongurency with my personality in a startling epiphany on my way to doing something else. That event became a defining moment in my life and I used it in Chrysalis. My father did tell me from an early age that he chose my name in honor of his parents and to give me a thinly veiled pseudonym if I ever wanted to use it. Thanks Dad for your insight.
I did put my energies into undergraduate and graduate studies and became a licensed practicing psychotherapist. Again it was a field I thoroughly enjoyed and continue to practice. However I was sitting in a waiting room one day gazing at an artists conception of the Amalfi Coast and the book that often effected to begin in my head bubbled once again to the surface. "It was a sultry morning on the Amalfi Coast..." "Yes," I said to whomever was looking through that portico doorway; "What is it you want?"
On my way to writing the definitive non-fiction book on transformations and transitions I was side tracked by a story that has occupied space in my brain for several years. So I thought why not write a book that presents a few human beings in the throes of transformative experiences. I really did try to write the other book but when I sat down to write the characters in the fiction seemed to be jumping up and down in my head saying "choose me, choose me!" In time I gave in to the importuning voices startled to hear them conversationally on the pages. It became the most enlivening part of my day to discover what each had to say or do as they had something to contribute. It is with great satisfaction that I present Chrysalis as my first novel. It was a joy to write and I look forward to bringing other stories out of the ether in the months ahead, I may even get to that non-fiction.
Warmest regards, enjoy the ride.
Catherine Lewis

Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this author's first book. A breathtaking balance of human moral risk and personal responsibility sweeps two strangers from paradise to the lock down dictatorship above the DMZ in Korea. The fast moving intrigue brings an intoxicating blend of current events seasoned throughout with a burgeoning relationship keeping the reader riveted until the end. The characters are well developed and likeable. Ultimately a story of transformation on the edge of war; it is a time of love and healing. I highly recommend it and look forward to the author's next offering.

This story is full of action intertwined around a love story. It is one I had trouble putting down once I started reading. Scenes are described in rich detail and the reader will find themselves pulling for the hero and heroine as the action unfolds.
