I usually post the latest news about my fiction on my official site CatherineVaughan.com and the publication date of this novel will be first announced on THIS Mailing List from my official site: http://eepurl.com/cxzD1D Kindly share this 💌Mailing List💌 link to any friends and family you think will LOVE the sound of this book series.

Like all my other writing this book series is something I have put my heart and soul into. There are moments I’ve cried as I’ve typed the paragraphs.  It’s a very personal story, certainly not autobiographical but an intimate imprint of all the things I wished and longed for in…

The World’s Most Beautiful Bohemian : Talitha Getty



If there is one deceased soul whom I believe to have been in another life it would be this particular Getty. Getty by marriage not birth of course. Talitha was beautiful and damned like me. Most curiously she was born on the island of Java which is where half my family are from. Talitha Getty is the quintessential Bohemian, she was an actress, she was beautiful, well-traveled and married a millionaire. Once a heart is touched with Dreams of Bohemia one cannot simply live in squalor, not if you’re a beautiful woman.


We owe much to our imaginings of Bohemian life to Tali-G. She epitomized the beautiful, damned and exotic side of Bohemian Life. Trips to Marrakesh, kaftans and exotic collectibles are conjured in the mind when one hears the word “bohemian” because of Talitha Getty. She lived it first. Her mother Poppet John was the daughter of Painter…

Top five fictional animals and their real life inspirations

Animals are brilliant.

img_3951 You can’t hear Echo singing her motorboat song in his picture but trust me she was.

Animals fascinate us. They provide us with comfort and love and yet we understand very little about them. We’re still learning about animals and children learn about our world from animals in children’s books. This has given rise to many popular animal characters but have you ever thought about the real life counterpart of these famous fictional animals? I’ve conducted some research and found the answers surprising.

1 Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and the rest of their friends have entertained children for many generations. First published in 1926 Winnie the Pooh has become a symbol of children’s literature. Yet Winnie the Pooh is a very strange name for a children’s character. Why is his last name Pooh? Winnie is a female name yet Pooh is very clearly…
