Cathleen Dunn


Cathleen Dunn is the author of The Witches Trilogy series of full-length novels: #1 Chimera and #2 Blue/Black are out already and getting great reviews! #3 in The Witches Trilogy is titled Step and set for release in January 2016. The witches stories are set in exotic locales worldwide: Dubai, Monte Carlo, Paris, Austria, Houston and of course, Seattle.

She loves writing about her family of witches and entertaining readers with the magic and jet-set lifestyle they live, and credits the combination of Seattle’s glistening darkness on rainy, downtown nights and visions of exotic destinations for creating the witches’ stories in her head. She just writes them down.

Cathleen lives in Seattle with her husband, rescuing greyhounds, attending the Opera and Symphony, has been onstage with the opera in MacBeth, Manon, Rigoletto, and more. She's been known to paint faux finishes and murals inside homes for her friends, and occasionally goes hunting and fishing with her husband.

Smashwords Interview

Tell us about your book - and how do you say the name?
This is the first book in "The Witches Trilogy", pronounced "Chimera" - like "Guy-Mere-Uh". And you can find it by searching "The Witches Trilogy" or author Cathleen Dunn as well.
The main character is a witch named Olivia Phalen. She's a light witch – they can only do good with their powers. In return they can have almost anything; live lavishly, travel, be famous...anything. But Olivia also has an enemy - a powerful dark witch named Dantin who is obsessed with her. He tried for Olivia's affection but she said "no" to him - and because he still wants her and can't have her, he keeps punishing her. Now, Olivia's got a new apprentice and for sure Dantin will come after her, too. Problem is that Olivia can't use her powers to harm him.
Olivia's got friends who are witches, too, right? Why don't they all just gang up on Dantin and take him out?
Because they're light witches. They can't. They can only do good with their powers. If they hurt or harm, then they'll turn dark themselves - become violent and psychotic like Dantin.
