Catrina Barton


Catrina Barton is a real go-getter, who in 2006 turned her avid reading addiction since she was three, into a vigorous passion for writing. Especially Young Adult Romances. She draws on her knowledge as a Kung-Fu Instructor to make her fight scenes both realistic, and action packed.

When not indulging her fertile imagination to craft stories for your reading pleasures, she enjoys hiking with her family, and amateur belly dancing.

Her love of writing, and her family, rival her exhilaration from helping fellow writers. She is a proud member of many writing, and marketing groups, and an active participant at Critique Circle, and several other crit groups.
Writes reviews for Safari Heat, and Satin Sheets Romance.

Favorite personal quote:
"An author cannot grow without both constructive criticism and encouragement."

    You know, I actually remember critiquing the first part of this on CC. I mentioned the opening paragraph seemed pretty weak for an opening hook. Looks like you've proven me wrong. I'm so happy your writing has made the published list. You must be so proud. Congratulations Nicky, looks like all that hard work paid off for you. :) ~KittyB78.

    I enjoyed these short stories. I like that you added enough detail to give us a solid setting and I love how you included a Writer in most of them. :)

    Stuart Aken is a true master of the craft. This collection was very engaging and the over all writing is clean and crisp. Thanks for sharing it with us. :)

    I received this e-book free in exchange for a review. I've never read a Zombie book before, so I'm excited to try something new. The Good: It's refreshing to read something from a zombie's point of view. I enjoyed the humor Mr. Herfst threaded in, complimented the story keeping it from being too dark. The Bad: I came across several mistakes, mainly minor typos. The formatting was clunky. The accents threw me for a loop. I had to re-read those lines a few times before they made sense. I didn't like the "Clearly she was homeschooled, judging by her level of diction." line. You shouldn't judge people like that. I was home-schooled and my diction is above hers. Please don't try to stereotype like that. Thank you. Overall Impression: I enjoyed the majority of this book. Thanks for writing it,
