Just four more months until my next novel, The Steep and Thorny Way, arrives in bookstores and online! The interior pages are almost ready, the beautiful dust jacket design has shown up in my email, and advance praise is starting to come in.

I'm overjoyed to share with you the following quotes about the novel:

“Cat Winters proves herself the master of YA historical fiction in this richly woven, theatrical tale of haints, friendship, and a time period we don't dare forget.”
Megan Shepherd, author of The Madman's Daughter series

A tale of secrets, murder, intolerance, friendship, and restless spirits, seen through the eyes of the vibrant, truth-seeking, pistol-slinging Hanalee. Marvelous.”
April Genevieve Tucholke, author of Wink, Poppy, Midnight

“Inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet, The Steep and Thorny Way takes readers into the lives of Hanalee Denney and Joe Adder during the dangerous time of prohibition, the Ku Klux Klan, and eugenics . . . Winters clearly and descriptively depicts a way of life in rural Oregon that most are not aware of . . . The historical accuracy provides a powerful sense of realism.”
