About kittyb78

Catrina Barton is a licensed Kung-Fu Instructor of the Black Dragon style, and draws on that experience to make her fight scenes both realistic and action packed. She enjoys being surrounded by the stark beauty of mother nature. Whether it's a moon-lit starry sky, or a picnic by a peaceful waterfall cascading from the mountain side. Growing up no matter where she was physically, she always had at least one book in her hands and spent every free moment lost in a book. It's only natural that as she grew up, her passion for reading grew into an even stronger passion for writing, especially Young Adult Paranormal Romances. She is a proud member of many writing and marketing groups, and an active participant at Critique Circle and several other crit groups. Favorite personal quote: "An author cannot grow without both constructive criticism and encouragement."

    Congrats Kitty. Your role as Black Dragon Style Kung Fu instructor sounds amazing.

      Hi Emma. Thank you. 🙂 Being an instructor is fun. I get to help other avoid becoming victims. XD
      Working with handicapped is challenging, but also enlightening for the instructor. Some of what they’ve taught me is amazing.
      In my opinion, learning self defense is a necessity for everyone.
