Catharina has always enjoyed storytelling that has evolved from hand-drawn comic strips, to creating hand-puppets, "Meemies and Fluffies", for her siblings' morning puppet show, to writing stories in longhand in spirals armed with only a pen while dreaming of a day when she'd own a typewriter.
Today, in her Southern California home near the mountains, she can't live without her computer and she now enjoys storytelling via her e-books, specializing in mystery, drama, and paranormal romance.

An entertaining tale of time travel with a wrinkle or two!
A gal, Siaylah, from 2005 is chosen by The Powers That Be (TPTB) to travel through time to ensure history’s prominent figures are kept out of harm’s way. The story opens with Siaylah in ancient Egypt protecting Ramses II. Once her task is completed there, TPTB snatch her up and deposits her in the American Wild, Wild West – circa late 1800’s. The period of time she despises most.
“No, no, no. I need my indoor plumbing! Even ancient Rome had indoor plumbing for chrissakes! I can’t LIVE without running water and indoor plumbing.”
Apparently, TPTB were asleep at the wheel this time; as Siaylah is still wearing the white tunic. They didn’t change her clothes from her days in ancient Egypt. And they didn’t “whisper” the knowledge she needed for the era. Enter Nick. Who believes Siaylah is the “professional lady” he has just bought and paid for. The misunderstanding that ensues between Siaylah and Nick lead to passion and a dangerous showdown.
TPTB never make an appearance or explain their actions. That wasn’t a problem as the story is well written. The sex scenes involving Nick and Siaylah are erotic as well as romantic. I really felt the connection between these two. One note though. At the beginning of the story, there is a scene between an Egyptian warrior and a harem girl that is somewhat coarse. Nonetheless, it plays an essential part in the tale. Nick is the consummate alpha cowboy. And don’t be dissuaded by the book cover. It is self-explanatory once you have read the tome. I really enjoyed reading THROUGH TIME INDEFINITE, and I look forward to what Ms. Shields will offer in the future as she continues to mature as an author.
