INSPY Award-winning author Catherine West writes stories of hope and healing from her island home in Bermuda. When she’s not at the computer working on her next story, you can find her taking her Border Collie for long walks or reading books by her favorite authors. She and her husband have two grown children.
“I believe it is vital to my writing that God put His fingerprint on each of my stories. I may not quote Scripture or have characters pray frequently, but their faith will always be part of their journey. Some of my characters have a lot of faith, some have none, and some are trying to find their way back.
It’s important to show that God is always at work, always with us, even if we don’t see or feel that. ... Just as God is sometimes a mystery in real life, so He is in my books—but He is always there.”
