Catina Noble: Meet the Author Podcast at Indie Book Source
September 17, 2023
Join Catina Noble tonight at 7 p.m. EST for the Meet the Author Podcast at Indie Book Source, hosted by Rob and Joan Carter.
Catina Noble’s writing started appearing in late 2009. To date, Catina has more than 200 publications including her poetry, short stories, articles/interviews, and her photos.
When she is not writing or creating new art work, she teaches mixed media art to children, practices art journaling, volunteers time in the community, and plots her next set of adventures.
In 2009, Catina graduated from Carleton University with a B.A.
Writing is her first love and then art.
I’m sure we all must have told ourselves, at least once while growing up, that life couldn’t possibly get worse.
As Rod Serling, host of the ancient TV show, The Twilight Zone, actually never said, “Imagine if you will,” being the eldest female child in a family with no parenting.
Imagine being “Mommy” to a pair of irresponsible, substance-addicted adult children.
Imagine taking on the responsibility of being the nanny for younger siblings, the maid for lazy, hungover parents, the literal whipping girl for a father’s outbursts.
Catina Noble has nailed it in Finding Evie.
She has managed to portray Evie Feathers as though she herself had lived through each and every soul-destroying experience and come out, not merely as a survivor, but as a thriver.
Finding Evie holds hope between its covers for neglected children.
As reviewer N.N. Light wrote: “A powerful book that brings a bright light to a terrible problem. The character of Evie could be any child who has been subjected to the unforgivable crime of child abuse by a parent. There will never be any excuse or reason for a parent to mentally, physically or even the worst part of abuse on one of their children.”
August 6, 1992: Life is pretty weird and hard to handle. It always is.
Why can’t you leave your body and switch to someone else’s, huh?
I have so many questions and no answers.
Image in the River
The image in the river is crying for help.
The image in the river is crying.
The image in the river is saying goodbye until it finally disappears forever.
I didn’t even know the image in the river.—Catina Noble
Reviewer Sherrill Wark writes: “A must-read for troubled adolescent and early teen girls who believe nobody could ever understand what they’re going through. Thirteen-year-old Catina Noble keeps a journal in which she records day-to-day events from a life somewhat more chaotic and confusing than most.”
