Her lush fantasy romances about magic, danger and passion in faraway realms have won more than thirty awards. Her debut novel, KISMET'S KISS, was a two-time Romance Writers of America Golden Heart(R) finalist and was nominated for Best Fantasy Romance of 2010 and Best Debut of 2010 by The Romance Reviews. A prequel, THE SOURCE OF MAGIC, has been named a Top Pick by The Romance Reviews. Cate credits her favorite childhood authors--a list that includes J.R.R. Tolkien, Guy Gavriel Kay, Anne McCaffrey, Nora Roberts, Ursula K. Le Guin, James Herriot, and C.S. Lewis--for her love of fiction, great characters, and a rich imagination. She also thanks her family for forgiving all those times she brought a novel to dinner.
