Filming in Poland with the award winning Polish director and talented film maker, Rafal Geremek. (Look for his work on You Tube) Thank you for a wonderful experience, Rafal, and giving me a reason to revisit my mother’s home town and explore my Polish roots with my son, Ralph, who saw Poland and our ancestral home for the first time. A breathtakingly beautiful country, with kind open hearted people. An experience of a lifetime that I hope I can repeat. Updates on the filming will appear on my website www.catrincollier.com in due course.

Ukraine – Rafal has filmed a documentary about the amazing work this charity is doing to help the victims of war in Ukraine. These compassionate people are not only providing necessities, housing and care but ambulances to evacuate the sick and wounded into Poland.        https://www.facebook.com/www.humanosh.org

‘Can you see what sunset will bring?’ Owain murmured .     ‘Death and victory.’                                                                             ‘I predicted as much. Which side has death?’                                               ‘Both have death and neither  everlasting victory. –  ‘I think you have taken lessons from the Greek oracle,’ Owain snapped. ‘Whoever was behind it, was expert in giving ambiguous answers.’                                                    Crach grinned. ‘Ambivalence is an art coveted and cultivated by soothsayers, my prince. God’s decrees were made before the existence of time. They are eternal, and comprehend all events because unlike us, He is aware of the eventual outcome, which given his wisdom we must trust to be the only and right one.’    – ‘He has granted you the sight.’      –  ‘He has granted me the ability to  glimpse ahead of mortal time, but I hold to the wise words of Abbot David. God hath already decreed the end, so He hath also decreed the means for attaining that end.” It is not for us to see, determine or criticise God’s plan.’                                                                                      ‘Are those last words also Abbot David?  –  ‘Pure Crach,’ Crach admitted.

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome, I received at Cowbridge WI, on the 21ST OCTOBER if I lived closer you’d have a new member. What a wonderful and friendly group. Warmest Wishes to everyone, Catrin.

This site has been expertly and beautifully constructed by the talented designer/s @ Web Design Wales.  At the moment it is an ongoing project which will allow for time for all of my books to be re-jacketed by the brilliant steve@ebookcovers.uk.  As a result some of my books still have temporary jackets, but given the quality of Steve’s work I think you will agree the results are well worth the wait. Thank you for your patience.

Check out my blog on the ‘Random Thoughts‘ page, which will be updated over time.
