About the Author

Catherine (Cathy) Lawton's published books include fiction, memoirs, and poetry. 'Something Is Coming to Our World: How a Backyard Bird Sees Christmas' is her first children's book. She painted the pictures and wrote the story for her young grandchildren after they visited her one Christmas. The grandchildren played in the backyard, threw snowballs, went sledding down the hill behind the house, decorated cookies, watched twinkling lights, sang Christmas carols, and fed the backyard birds. It all felt magical experiencing these things together, yet it all pointed to something bigger than all of these things put together: the wondrous time when the stars shone brighter and Heaven came to earth. Catherine first had a poem published at the age of twelve, in the children's publication, 'Junior Joys.' During adolescence she wrote verses on themes of friendship, romance, nature, and humor. Later, as a freelance writer, her faith poems appeared in numerous national periodicals. In 2016, the first book of her collected poetry, Remembering Softly, was released by Cladach Publishing. Her forthcoming collection, Glimpsing Glory, features poetry, verse, and meditations composed from 2016 through 2019, perhaps written in a more mature voice but with a freer, expanding vision. Catherine's other published books include Face to Face: A Novel. Cathy has lived all her life in Colorado and Northern California, loves road trips with her husband through the western states of America, holidays with their two grown children and their spouses, and outings to mountains and seashores with their six grandchildren. She seeks to live a contemplative life while participating in family, community, and church life, cultivating beauty through gardens, friendships, and artful books.
