I have been thinking about the nature of my blog, where it is going, and what I need to do with it. A brief glimpse at my yearly stats told me that readers here are generally interested in my posts about being a housewife and working mother, and about vampires. Hmm, interesting combination! And one that I am very happy to provide content for.
And so, for my new followers and visitors to SpookyMrsGreen, who exactly am I? Well, my name is Catherine Green, and I am a housewife and mother of two. My children are both under the age of five, which is why they dominate my attention at present. But I have a darker side as well… don’t we all? I am a paranormal romance author. And I hunt ghosts.
Yes, by day I masquerade as the dutiful English mother and wife. I do the preschool run. I wash nappies, I tend to the baby, I chase around trying to clean a perpetually messy house, and I walk the dog. Oh, and I cook (occasionally), and I organise my work-obsessed husband. All that while grabbing half an hour here and there to get on the computer and update my blogs, or do some social networking, or research my latest project, or simply write my stories.
But around all of this I am an author. I have four published novels. The first three form a trilogy, and introduce us to the Redcliffe novels series. This is the story of Jessica Stone and her adventures in the pretty seaside resort of Redcliffe, Cornwall. I am currently working on book 4 in the series, and things are getting pretty steamy with the werewolves let me tell you!
And, don’t worry, there are plenty of vampire shenanigans to entertain and excite my readers as well. In fact, my fourth published novel, The Darkness of Love, tells the story of how our favourite bad boy Marcus Scott became a vampire under the rule of his Victorian lord and master…

My wife is also a stay at home mother, and I can fully appreciate the hectic nature of the life you live. How you have managed to publish four novels alongside it all is a testament to your skills, and your desire to succeed. Keep up the good work Catherine.
Thank you Alex! I really appreciate these messages of support, because on some days (like today) it can feel like one heck of battle.
I appreciate your words of encouragement to those of us who are stay at home (Moms, Grandmothers, etc). I finally took the plunge of working from home a few years ago and I wish I knew what I know now when my kids were school age. I could have a super-sized business by now and I could have enjoyed all the school activities instead of beating myself up because I couldn’t be there. I am now a grandmother of 11 and get to enjoy the grandkids school events. I love my Avon business and freedom it gives me to be the person I wanted to be then.
