This site is a collection of books authored
by Cathleen Van Winkle.
I adore the Victorian Era, I'm enthralled by all manner
of mysteries, and I have a deep regard for history. The
books I have penned reflect that . . . and much more.
On the "History" page, I have included information for:
Battles of Freedom: The Life and Times of John Henri Kagi
The Twelve, An Underground Railroad Saga
The History of Mayhew Cabin Museum
On the "Mystery" page, I have included a synopsis for each of the full-length novels in The Whitmore House Series including:
The Whitmore House
The Whitmore House - House Divided
The Whitmore House - Foundations
The Whitmore House - The Experience
The Whitmore House - Remains
The Whitmore House - Spirits
The Whitmore House - Power
The Whitmore House - Proposals
These are "hauntingly romantic novels." The Whitmore House is far more than a beautiful Victorian house (turned Bed & Breakfast) located just outside Oakwood, Nebraska. It's an actively haunted house. No one is more devoted to the Whitmore House more than my main character, Carey. I invite you to follow Carey as she struggles with shyness, falls in love, and deals with active spirits . . . all while trying to fit into an unforgiving world. As Carey solves one mystery after another in her small town, she learns to overcome, accepts her introversion, and finds her purpose solving mysteries. Much like her creator, Carey thrives on the thrill of the hunt.
