Cathleen Earle fell in love with science fiction when she was a teen. She loves jigsaw puzzles and astronomy, cookies and cats, and all sorts of word puzzles other than the "just another boring crossword."

Cathleen lives with her husband in Chino, California, and she loves visits with her three now-grown daughters and her beloved grandson.
