Author Biography

Catherine (Cat) Ann Russell loves animals and nature very much. She lives with her husband, Ed, on a small farm in Lyons, Colorado, and has goats, chickens, ducks, and two cute burros named Nikki and Norman. At one time, Catherine had seven large Nubian goats, and she would take them on a walk up the valley near her home. People used to call her, “the goat lady.” Before this time on the farm, Catherine worked many years as a scientist to study the sky and air. She released many weather balloons from canyons, fields, and even ships at sea. People then used to call her, “the balloon lady.” Now, Catherine enjoys writing beautiful children’s books. She hopes she can help feed little babies and children around the world by selling her books and donating money to organizations who care for children. She hopes one day people will call her, “the book lady.” You can find Catherine online at www.basketfulreliefproject.com and www.spikeproductions.com.

Mama Wren was happy that her eggs had finally hatched to produce three lovely Wren chicks. Soon two of her chicks start singing, but Wren Three could only manage a funny squeak and it made her sad. One morning, Wren Three heard beautiful music coming from a window. She flew to the window and found a Piccolo playing his music. Wren Three and Piccolo soon became friends. Wren Three could then have fun, flying around with Piccolo on her back as he played his music. All the fun ended when something terrible happened to Piccolo while flying on Wren Three’s back. What happened to Piccolo and would Wren Three ever learn to sing? Find out more in Catherine Ann Russell’s Picco and Wren Three.

Catherine Ann Russell’s Picco and Wren Three will appeal to lovers of children's adventure books. Catherine’s integration of the storyline with the colorful images by Janell E Robisch was amazing. It’s almost as if the images tell the story by themselves. The deep shades of color only make them even more enthralling. I loved the way that the author brings warmth to the words and images. The author’s choice of words will enrich your child’s vocabulary and improve their English. Catherine delivers the moral of the story in simple yet engrossing ways. From Wren Three’s determination to sing, kids can learn to persevere, be ambitious, disciplined, and perhaps most important of all, be patient. They will also learn to be sincere friends.
