Introducing…Cate and Oliver

Introducing…Cate and Oliver

I made a promise yesterday, and a few of you picked up on it. Some of you even gave me a virtual high-five that you liked the idea.

A book sneak peek.

Ooh, what a novel concept. (Sorry. I can’t help myself sometimes.)

As I’m rounding the corner of finishing the first draft of my debut contemporary romance novel, I thought perhaps this would be a good time to make some early introductions.

There are still many steps to take for my story to become available as an e-book and printed book.  Editing, cover and jacket design, preliminary web content, and oodles and oodles more. (Yes, I am quite scientific throughout this process as you can tell.)

But…until then, may I introduce you to screenwriter and author Cate Mullen, 38, and up and coming television and film actor Oliver Sand, 28, from  THE MUSE UNLOCKED by Chris Kuhn, slated for a summer 2013 release.

Happy reading!



Cate stared at Oliver over her chai tea latte at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. She watched him down a putrid-looking green health drink and giggled as he made a face of disgust when he finished. “How do you drink that? You obviously can’t stand it.”

He set the plastic bottle down on the table and stretched out his tan, muscular arms up above his head. “Gotta’ do what we must to keep our machines functioning properly,” he looked seriously at her for a moment and then broke out into a wide grin.

“Oh, I’m not arguing that your machine isn’t in tip-top shape,” Cate glanced at him with a smile in her eyes. “But food and drink are to be savored. There’s no way you savored that. I think that was last seen on the set of Swamp Thing.

He rolled his eyes at her. “Swamp what? Yeah, yeah. Ha-ha. Whatever. Make fun of it all you want. All I know is,” he leaned in close to her face and whispered hoarsely near her ear. “When this body has to perform, whatever it’s taking on, it performs.” He pulled back and shot her a sexy wink.

She felt her jaw dip ever so slightly. I’ll see your sexual innuendo and raise you a double entendre. She stopped herself in her tracks fearing that if she went down that path, they may never return to the set.  Still, she couldn’t resist completely. “I’m not touching that one.”

Oliver smirked and started to lift his finger to respond to her not-so-coy remark. She grabbed his fingers with one hand and covered his lips with the other. “Oh, you know what I meant,” she feigned innocence and offered her own sexy wink in return.
