      Cathy A WilsonCatherine A Wilson My grandmother was a wonderful story teller and I count myself fortunate to have been able to spend time with her and my great uncles and aunts, who loved nothing than a good pot of tea with added lashings of gossip It is their legacy that fuelled my genealogical addiction as I strove to identify fact from fiction and then record the information for posterity From this sprouted my love of history, the urge to research and write and, eventually, to develop my own stories.At the suggestion of Anna Jacobs, another highly successful and talented Australian novelist, I joined Romance Writers Australia One keystroke error placed me on a chat loop where I met my namesake, Cathy T After making a crass remark concerning my rather plain name, our friendship was born We began to regularly email one another, offering words of encouragement the publishing world is a tough place for the uninitiated believe me, when Cathy T came upon the idea to create a novel along the lines of our real time friendship Hence, Lions and Lilies was born Catherine was born in London, England, but has lived in Australia for the last thirty nine years, growing up in and around the leafy suburbs of Eastwood, Epping and Dundas Without a particular path in mind she simply took the first job she was offered, which happened to be the position of Layout Artist for a well known map publisher, but changed course and selected a career in nursing She later enlisted in the Royal Australian Air Force, before resigning to a quiet life at home.She lives in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, with her husband and two beautiful children, several Jack Russells, a large flock of flighty chickens, goldfish and budgies When not writing which is not often she likes to garden, read books, shop, read books, drink copious cups of strong coffee with friends and read plenty of books.

    • An Amazing! Brilliant! Fantastic! Wonderful! book :DI borrowed this book from a friend who had met the authors 'Catherine A Wilson and Catherine T Wilson' and she had thought I would enjoy this novel as I support local and arising authors. I was not disappointed the moment I read the first page I was completely captivated like I was under a spell. Taken back in history to the time of 1300s, I experienced a story of love and passion, political and war plus DANGER. I love the twists & shocking [...]


    • Fresh, thrilling and throughly enjoyable.'Seperated in infancy and rediscovered by chance!' Great tag line that instantly drew me in, along with one of the best opening lines in a novel that I have have ever read - 'Poxy, whoring, conceited bastards'- Wow, I couldn't wait to meet them!I love a good 'old fashioned' historical romance but have found it diffucult, of late, to get my teeth into many that are being churned out for popular consumption. And there is one really good reason why! Many pop [...]


    • Really, really enjoyed this book - great characters, realistic storyline, cleverly woven into the history of the period. I know the second book is due out soon and I can't wait - A Keeper - to read over and over again.



    • I thought the book was fabulous! I don’t recall them writing to others as stated in another review, but each chapter was an alternating letter to each other which I thought worked perfectly. I went to the authors website where they have a video and the idea of letters is based upon their real life meeting online by accident. Actually it was quite fascinating. The website is well worth a visit.I would have been disappointed if the sisters had not met at all in the book and obviously they would [...]


    • Others have raved about this book but I just couldn't get into the story - and I enjoy a good historical "what-if" story. The bulk of the narrative is in the form of letters written by two sisters, initially to each other and then to others. However, I personally don't think this works as the line between the "letters" and standard story telling becomes ambiguous, and it seems that what begins as a first-person retelling of events drifts into a third party observer account. At 450 odd pages, I w [...]


    • Court intrigue, romance, and adventure combine to create a thoroughly enjoyable and suspenseful medieval saga, The Lily and the Lion by Catherine A. Wilson and Catherine T. Wilson. It is an enthralling melodrama set in 1360 France and England, and the first book in the Lions and Lilies series. A mostly epistolary novel, the action nevertheless vibrates with urgency.The novel begins with Cecile d’Armagnac, a beautiful young French courtier, learning that her engagement to the Dauphin has been c [...]


    • Best read EVER!I was given this book for xmas last year and put it away to read later (and then forgot about it). I found it again when sorting my bookshelves and decided to give it a go. WOW! So very glad I did. What a read! Where have these authors been hiding, cause I had never heard of them before.From there authors bios on I first thought they were English, but there not, there Australian! The book opens with a scene between one sister (herione number 1) and her father. She was meant to ma [...]


    • The Lily and the Lion is a rip-roaring medieval romance offering plenty of action (of all types), adventure and intrigue. The back-cover blurb sets the tone: “A world where knighthood was revered and love was cherished” in “an age where women have no control over their lives”. These two assertions marry seamlessly in the novel. The heroine, the beautiful and feisty Cecile d’Armagnac, is separated from her identical twin, Catherine Pembroke, at birth but fate intervenes to bring them to [...]


    • I really enjoyed this :)I haven't read a lot of historical romance, especially over the last few years, but this series appealed to and hey, supporting Aussie authors is always a plus side :)This book follows the journey of Catherine and Cecile, two girls from very different walks of life as they discover they are related, they are sisters and are hunted for it.It is very well written and the format was really interesting. It is written in the form of letters from one sister to the other.This wa [...]


    • I was introduced to 'Lions and Lilies' via a friend who met the authors at a fair and I have to say I completely LOVE this series of books. I was captivated from page one and devoured the book over one weekend.I just couldn't put it down.You feel like you are stepping back in time. The atmosphere of the medieval period just jumps out at you and you become swept up in the lives of Catherine and Simon and Gillet and Cecile. And this in no ordinary historical romance. This has depth of story, intri [...]


    • My mum gave me this book for christmas a couple of years ago as i had finished Twilight (my fave series ever) and had nothing to read. I didnt think i was going to like it but it turned out to be really, really good. I liked that the girls were the real heroes. They were strong and independent and they didnt let anyone tell them what to think. It also made me learn heaps more about what it was like in medieval times. It made me want to read book 2.


    • I really really liked this book. The story revolves around two sisters, their personal relationship and the relationships they build with various other characters they encounter as they try to find a way to meet each other.This is the first book in the series and I am eagerly awaiting the remainder as I thoroughly enjoyed the unique style and sophistication of this book.


    • Loved this book. The historical detail was realistic and well-researched, the characters were believable and likeable, the story was intriguing and kept me reading! I recommend this to anyone who enjoys intelligent historical fiction with some hot romance thrown in :-)



    • I just loved this book. I great characters and and a fabulous story. Just wish the authors had more books for me to read.






    • absolutely loved this book, i got to the end very late one night & if i'd had the next book i would have just kept reading. i found it the sort of book i just couldnt put down.
