ABOUT THE AUTHOR

BRpic4.jpg

Cate Bronson is a Canadian-American, award-winning science fiction writer and author of speculative thrillers and narrative nonfiction. In 2018, she became a contributor to Chicken Soup for The Soul, and in 2020, won a gold medal with her novel, Clonedroid: The New Wave, for Adult Science Fiction in the President's Book Awards. In 2021, the Florida Authors and Publishers Association awarded Clonedroid: The New Wave again, along with artist Deb Von Cannon, for Cover Design. Cate also received recognition with Writer's Digest, winning an award of honorable mention for her mainstream/literary short story A Bit More Than We Could Chew.

Her love for science and fiction began as a child after watching Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek series and Carl Sagan's Cosmos. That fascination grew with exposure to Isaac Asimov, Ayn Rand, H.G. Wells, Philip K. Dick, Robert Heinlein, and Michael Crichton. Her writing reflects these influences, along with her love for philosophy and a passion for exploring what makes the cosmos and everything within it tick. 

Meanwhile, her nonfiction centers closer to home, focusing on family and devotion to animal welfare, primarily greyhound rescue. Nonfiction articles Going Grey and A Lifelong Underdog Finally Goes Home A Winner were published in two issues of a mainstream periodical. 


As a member of the Florida Writers Association, Cate helps as a beta reader and critique partner, assisting writers interested in mastering their craft. She has also participated in the annual "Mayor's Youth Showcase of Achievement Awards" as a literary judge. 

Cate lives in Florida with her husband and two adopted greyhounds. She is currently working on Clonedroid: The Next Wave and a new action thriller series in the supernatural realm, along with her first book about life with rescue dogs. She is also finalizing edits on Blue Mountain, an epic narrative nonfiction about a family that faces adversity and tragedy while chasing a rustic dream in depression-era and wartime Canada.

 

When she isn’t at work on numerous projects, Cate spends time reading in the sunshine while giant hounds lounge by her side.
