Cathy was busy in the blogosphere this past week. The blogs Book Chatter and Other Stuff and Marta's Meanderings both hosted Q&A with Cathy, andwrote lovely reviews of The Day the Falls Stood Still. Instead of posting Cathy's answers as blurbs in this blog post, we'll give you a taste of the questions she answered. From Book Chatter and Other Stuff:

Global warming and the need for green technology must have been a factor in your writing of the novel. Did you intend to make an environmental statement when writing the book?

Find out Cathy's answer here.

Marta of Marta's Meanderings also had questions that produced insightful answers, such as:

Cathy, what surprised you most about your book and/or characters as you were writing? Did anything turn out radically different than you'd originally thought it would?

And, of course, you don't want to miss these blogs' reviews here and over here too.
