After convincing Farokh to keep silent, Katherine makes her way slowly to her laboratory, in an attempt to continue her research into decoding the catalyst. Unfortunately without her writer she has no means of contacting Professor Sumian, and must rely on the rudimentary technology available to her in Saskatoon. CLICK HERE for next chronological story.

Your writing is fantastic as always. What a terrible blow for Katherine though I’m sure she’ll find other leads to follow now.
The sketches are stunning Cheryl.

Thank you David, for your continued support, it means a lot, and I’m glad you’re enjoying reading. Yes, this story was written at the same time I was made redundant from work, so it was a strange coincidence. I knew exactly how Katherine felt, and I think that influenced this story, (Thankfully I found another job, soon after, and Katherine is very resilient, but she feels quite alone at this point..)
I love the way you develop your stories always grounded in strong characterizations.
Thanks Lee, I’m glad you’re enjoying reading, it means a lot to me. 🙂 Katherine is one of my favourite characters, so I’m pleased I can share this part of her story with you.
Hi Cheryl! Fascinating issue. I really like it that you care to add such depth and reality to your characters, (which I think is unique to the written word), while your drawings are positively cinematic – it’s such a potent cocktail. I would love to see every issue bound in a huge volume (or series of volumes).
Hi Richard, thank you so much, I’d love to release something like that one day, as well as the novels. I’m also thinking about possibly narrating the stories, and maybe talking a bit about the characters on youtube, but I’ve got to work out how that would work! (I narrated Love in a Box, about a year ago in front of a group of people at a book club, and I’ve been itching to see how it would translate to video… I have to try to remain true to the characters, so it’s very early on in the development of that idea.
That sounds very exciting. I’d be really interested to see that.
Ouch Dad! Ouch redundancy! Ouch aching and cold body! Ouch missing wife and writer…a painful and challenging day for Kat, but you have created her with the resilient strength she needs at this time so it has to change for the better, doesn’t it? Awed by your writing and art as always Cheryl…
Hi John, thank you, yes I think we can all relate to some of the things happening to Katherine, although poor Kat has to deal with an avalanche all at once, but she’s a fighter. I like fighters, they give me a lot of hope. She and Alex have that in common…
