Catherine Ulrich Brakefield
Catherine Ulrich Brakefield is an ardent receiver of Christ’s rejuvenating love, as well as a hopeless romantic and patriot. She skillfully intertwines these elements into her writing. A trip across the western part of the United States meeting her extended family of Americans inspired her inspirational historical romance, Wilted Dandelions, winner of the CSP Book of the Year 2016, and an Eric Hoffer Award finalist. Her other books include The Wind of Destiny, Images of America: The Lapeer Area and Images of America: Eastern Lapeer County. Catherine, former staff writer for Michigan Traveler Magazine, has freelanced for numerous publications. Her short stories have been published in Guidepost Books Extraordinary Answers to Prayers, Unexpected Answers and Desires of Your Heart; Baker Books, Revell, The Dog Next Door; CrossRiver Publishing, The Benefit Package.
Catherine enjoys horseback riding, swimming, camping, and traveling the byroads across America. She lives in Michigan with her husband, Edward, of forty years and her Arabian horses. Her children grown and married, she and Edward are the blessed recipients of two handsome grandsons and a beautiful granddaughter.
