About Catherine Wilson

I have spent most of my working life as an engineer of one sort or another (broadcast engineer, software engineer) and people who know that side of me are surprised when they learn about the writing side. I like science and engineering because I like to know how things work, and I like the arts because I like to know how people work.

It took me 50 years to graduate from college, because I kept getting distracted by life, but I finally earned a BA and MS in Computer Science. Having accomplished that, I started writing a novel, which turned into a trilogy. I don't know why I needed that degree to write, at last, the book that I always knew was in me trying to get out. Maybe I just needed to be old enough.

I can´t express the gratitude to this amazing series, better to read them. About the power of following your heart and how honesty is -without (much) intent- the best weapon because every person thinks the other like themselves. Thanks

Just as the first and second books were amazing so is this one! Catherine Wilson did the research, and took the time to create an entire, long gone, era, it's people, values,and their lifestyles and made them come to life. She brings the reader in and takes us on a journey. It's as if we are right there with Tamras and Marra learning, struggling to survive, trying to find love and keep hold of it. And in the end, every time I read them, I feel as if I have found a piece of myself that I'd lost. I come away feeling as if I've learned something and I am sad that this is the last one. These books are funny, thrilling, embarrassing, sad, happy, and all around addictively amazing!!! I am so proud of these characters accomplishments because they are just so believable. This isnt just a love story. It's about growing up, and all you go through to get there. It's about leadership and making good decisions, and facing the worst of the worst odds and coming out on top. They don't have super powers. They don't have new aged tech. They have their wit, their ability to problem solve, and each other. And in the end that's enough. Read them. You'll fall in love with them, you'll find yourself coming back to go on the adventure again and again. I know I have.

I have been searching for a lesbian story that really hit home and made me feel human for more than half my life. I found it in this book. When Women We're Warriors, makes me feel grounded, connected to the rest of the world. It gives me a sense of history and hope for a future. Cathrine Wilson took a topic that is frowned on and condemned, and we are told has been wrong since the creation of the world and showed us that we have ancestry.

I love this whole series. The relationship development was what got me. It was done very slowly yet very surely. There are also clever twists withing the whole series, and it's simply a very entertaining read. The writing style is very straight forward and simple. I wished the author was more descriptive of the characters since I had to imagine how they looked like on my own terms, which I had no issues with.

This is the first self-published and lgbt fiction I have read, and I have been pleasantly surprised. Rereading the whole thing.

I downloaded the first couple of chapters of Book 1 to see if I wanted to read it further. I knew within a few pages that I would go on to read the following two books in the series. I was right there with it and this author held me hostage for the few weeks it took me to read these three books. (Thanks for that Catherine Wilson!).
The book tells the story of the coming of age of a young woman (Tamras), a warrior in the making, who unknowingly is destined to be a leader among her people. It’s a journey both physical and spiritual of Tamras and the deep bonds which develop between her and her intriguing Warrior mentor/trainer Maara. This story has it all – love found, love lost, family dynamics, friendships forged, good versus evil, skirmishes fought and great battles engaged. It’s written in such a way that it all seems really real. So much so that days after I’d finished these books I found myself thinking about the characters in the “House of Merin” and wondering what they were up to today.
Read it – you’ll not be disappointed.
