CA was and is an avid reader. Her mother was a librarian and brought new bookshome each week. This is where young CA first got the storytelling bug. Shewrote her first story at the age of ten. A romance about a little boy she likedat the time.
Her first book, Centauri Dawn is based on a dream she had one night when shewas about fifteen. She was a princess from Alpha Centauri and her family wascoming for her to take her back home. Of course, now she knows all teenagersthink this as some time or another. None of them want to think they belong tothe crazy family they have. But the dream stuck with her and she decided itwould make a great story.
CA credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and the greatfriends she's made at CRW for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore hercreativity.
