Catherine Andorka began her writing career in 1979, after receiving a speeding ticket. (In her opinion, undeserved.) The poem she authored lamenting the injustice of the justice system served her well, both in the courtroom and later, when it was published in her local newspaper. She graduated from poetry to writing short story fiction and non-fiction. Eventually she went on to become the Editor-in-Chief of the Weddingpages Bride and Home Magazine (Chicago Edition).
These days, Catherine is devoting her working hours to various types of book length fiction, including romance, and women’s fiction with romantic elements. She is a member of Romance Writers of America and belongs to the Chicago North Chapter. Since she is a romantic at heart, these genres are the perfect venues for her to create characters who inspire reader’s fantasies.
Catherine lives with her husband in a Chicagoland suburb. Currently, she is trying to balance a writing career with her need to be an involved grandmother to Logan and Brynn, who light up her life every day.
“Fly Me to Paradise” is Catherine’s second published novel, though she has plans for many more. She loves hearing from readers and can be reached via email.
