N.M. Catalano is a multi-published Amazon bestselling author.
It’s sort of a funny thing how N.M. Catalano started writing. This is the true story:
She had just separated from her third husband - that’s right, three – and just like every other woman who has gone through that, was going through an emotional time. Everyone lives that more than likely during this time, whether they are the instigator or not. Writing her first published women’s contemporary book, STRANGER, was a bit of a cleansing process. She sat down with a pen and a notebook – she wrote the whole thing in those marble notebooks – and just kept writing. When she was finished, she decided, “What the hell? Let’s publish it.” So she did. And people loved it. As of right now it’s thirteen books later, she’s still writing passionate stories centered around a suspenseful, sometimes dark, sometimes twisted, story line.
One of the most important things she feels a writer must do is to truly love their characters. How can the characters be loved if the creator isn’t madly in love with them themselves? Crazy? Maybe. But she loves every single one of them.
She has partied with the best of them in her twenties, met the two true loves of her life in her thirties, (her children), and is now finding she’d rather sit back and be alone, if not she’s with her family, than in a crowd of people. I suppose she’s become a bit of a recluse. She used to say when she was younger she wanted to win the lottery so she could join the Peace Corps. Well, she hasn’t hit the big numbers, but she does what she can for the betterment of mankind in her own little ways.
Writing her stories is one way she truly hopes she brings a little sunshine into your life.
"I am just a woman, like many of you, who has lived through beauty and ugliness, happiness, (sometimes extreme), and sadness, (sometimes heart wrenching), and have grown to love life and myself even more. I write because I love the characters, I am madly and hopelessly in love with them and want to share them with you. Life is beautiful and is meant to be enjoyed day by day, sometimes you have to pick out the good stuff with a magnifying glass like a needle in a haystack, but enjoyed none the less. The stories that I put on paper, I think, help us to find that enjoyment a little bit more.
I am just a woman who is in love with love…<3"
