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.

Extremely well written story. I can usually stop reading a book to do other things, but this one makes that hard to do.

I also thank you for putting these up.

Review by: William Breen on July 20, 2017 :
I loved this book. I wish I found the first in the series before I started this one. I recommend doing that, since the story telling and characters are worth it. It is NOT needed to read this follow up. Thank you for putting this online.
