About the author

As a former teacher and financial planner, and a cancer survivor, Catherine had an "ah-ha" moment. She would not define herself with titles and possessions. She left her 6-figure-income job, gave away most of her possession, sold her big house to live out a dream. She moved to Mexico and started to train for endurance races, such as Ironman. This soon became a passion and a new career of coaching and motivating other athletes to reach their own endurance and fitness dreams.

Throughout her life, Catherine has always been writing and journaling, yet it wasn't until this particular book, that she had another "ah-ha" moment and a new dream of getting it published. She wants everyone to enjoy it and perhaps learn something along the way.

And she has many new book ideas in the works.

Synopsis

This is a story that teaches many life lessons through the story of a young woman, Ellie, and her dog.

Blue, a blue-eyed Australian Shepherd, has been reincarnated through many lives until he finally finds his lost, one true love, Ellie, from a previous life. His mission is to make amends for his past by guiding Ellie through adversities she encounters in her life starting with the relationship she has with her divorced parents, and as she becomes a talented and famous ultra long-distance runner.

Blue, has a voice that only the reader can hear, yet he has a way of communicating with Ellie through their deep, sagacious, and loving bond. When Ellie becomes a social media superstar, all is not perfect for her behind the scenes. There is a diverse and cast of characters Ellie must deal with, who add complexity to her life. Blue uses the wisdom he has accumulated through his past lives, mixed with dog antics and sense of humor, to guide Ellie as she meanders through success, failure, love, loss, tragedy, and death. The story takes the reader on a roller coaster of emotions from beginning to end.

Brandylane is a small, independent press, founded in 1985, that publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, memoir, and children’s books. We publish under a traditional arrangement and also offer a cooperative track for emerging authors. We believe that books make a difference, that lives and the world are changed by the power of words and images, and that large publishing houses neglect a wealth of good writing. We are not looking for mainstream read-it-before self-help.

Under our cooperative arrangement, we invest a portion of the publishing costs and offer a stepped royalty structure from 30% to 60%--higher than the industry average. One distinguishing feature of our program is that our marketing effort includes a one-year launch, followed by two additional years of promotion through our social media, website, our seasonal genre, and subject matter email campaigns, and continuous support from our PR team.
