About C. Litka

I write adventure romances. Romances in the old sense of novels that depict settings and events remote from everyday life. The fact that my stories are set in imaginary times and locales, mean that they can conventionality be considered science fiction. The heart of science fiction, however, is found in short stories, and in speculating on future society and technology, which is not my focus. I write character focused novels that use imaginary locales for that remoteness from everyday life that gives them the air of those old fashioned romances.

In my teen years I read hundreds of science fiction books. Since then I’ve read many other types of novels, detective and mystery stories, humor, adventure, military, and sea stories, most of them written in the first half of the last century. Having lived a perfectly ordinary and, thankfully, an uneventful life, it is my reading that has shaped the style and themes of my stories – old fashioned stories with modern sensibilities. I write first person narratives featuring likable, modern characters, lighthearted, realistic adventures, told with humor and a bit of that other type of romance as well.

I live in a small Wisconsin town. I’ve been married for as long as I can remember, with two grown children and a couple of grandchildren. Besides writing, I paint impressionist landscapes and put in an hour’s bike ride each day on the local bike trail when it’s warm and, during the long Wisconsin winters, inside, with the bike on a stand next to a window.

Review by: Hannes Birnbacher on April 23, 2016 : (no rating)
"Some day days" ist lots of romance, little of science fiction. I am very fond of the style and the humour of C.Litka, which made it worthwile reading this book. This is the first of the three (at the moment) books of C.Litka available at Smashwords. The topic: man loves girl but girl seems to wish him only as a friend, however, they are talking endlessly about this problem. I prefer dialogues for action, not for explaining feelings and problems to the reader; it is not plausible that two people do talk about their love problem all day long.
In the same universe, post-apocalypse Great Britain, plays "A Summer in Amber", which includes a similar relationship and is written much more sophisticated. I consider that one a masterpiece of the author.
I am submitting this review of "Some day days" without a rating, therefore, but it is still fun to read.

A science fiction with a lot of relationship in it. Very enjoyable and a bit off the beaten main stream path. Make sure to read this book first, as there is a link between this and the next novel.
