Catherine Taylor was born in Australia, daughter to an army veteran, who managed a pub through her childhood years. Growing up, she spent many hours listening to the yarns of patrons and the stories of her parents set against the backdrop of World War II, including their incredible love story. Her passion for writing was further inspired by her love of books and films and she began creating her own stories from an early age.
Catherine spent many years in social work and came to understand the complexity of people's lives and how true is the saying "Fact is stranger than fiction."
With her love of films, Catherine always wanted to be an actor and saw many years on the stage, and in later years appeared in two feature films. She went on further to work on a film set with Anthony Hopkins and remembers with tremendous joy an hour spent talking with him about his films.
In 1983, Catherine met the love of her life and became engaged to him a week after their first date. 2014 sees the 30th anniversary of a marriage that Catherine regards as "still in its honeymoon" with the addition of four children and two grandchildren.
For the past thirteen years Catherine and her family have lived in her husband's home country of New Zealand and she considers it her own home. It was there that Catherine took up full time writing and in August 2012, she released her debut novel The Finest Line.
As an author of erotic fiction, Catherine enjoys writing the explicit sex scenes and romantic elements of her stories, but never at the expense of plot. The story must come first and readers of Catherine's books have discovered how much she loves suspense, action and plenty of twists and turns. She also believes that a book must have a conclusive ending and isn't a fan of cliffhangers.
With a Bachelor of Media Arts and a Diploma in Acting, Catherine still writes for the screen and has written two feature film screenplays which she hopes to see produced.

Book One of The Line Trilogy
When potential Olympic gymnast, Mairead Kavanagh wakes up in an Australian hospital after a drug and alcohol binge, her ordeal has only begun. The police are waiting to interview her over the death of her friend, who has plunged to his death from the balcony on which she was found.
Frightened and a long way from her home in New Zealand, she has no one to turn to until the arrival of the one man who has intimidated and infatuated her more than any other.
James Vaughn has been her chauffeur and body guard for five years and the only person who has been able to subdue her. An ex soldier of the British Army, James is composed and disciplined, unlike his boss's daughter who seeks constant excitement which sometimes can prove dangerous.
Forced together until he can get her home, the barriers of their relationship begin to break down. Mairead fears her attraction to him stems from the strange desires that she has fought to suppress.
As their relationship blooms, her happiness is short lived with the arrival of another man who knows a terrible secret about Mairead. Now she must choose between two men, one whom she loves and the other who can destroy her life.

Prequel to The Line Trilogy
It is 1995, four years after Ukraine has declared independence.
Lena Petrenko cares little about her country or her miserable life. As the daughter of a racketeer, she has seen enough violence and has shut the whole world out. She lives in her bedroom with her baby doll and immerses herself in fairy tales, creating her own happy endings.
When her father forces her to attend his cage fights, Lena finds herself caught up in the brutality when she is claimed as the winner's trophy. Her terrifying champion is nothing like the prince of her stories. He is every bit the beast and she is hardly a beauty.
Lena soon learns that there is more to this stranger than his hard exterior. He has a dark history and an agenda that somehow involves her, but behind all the muscle beats a tender heart. As she begins to face her own terrible past, she finds him to be an unlikely ally, evoking everything she has buried deep inside, including her passion.
As her feelings for him deepen, Lena finds herself contending once again with a violent world. Now her captor must become her saviour, at the risk of losing each other, or losing their lives.
