It's with a sad heart that I read this on Cate's facebook:

"I am sorry to tell you that our dear friend, Cate Culpepper, passed away on Saturday, October 25, after a long illness. She left this video to say goodbye to her friends. I am a better person for having known her. I am sure we all are. She was special. She was one of a kind.

God speed, dear one.


Cate Culpepper grew up in southern New Mexico, where she served as the state lesbian, before moving to the Pacific Northwest twenty-five years ago. She had won one Lambda Literary Society Award, three Golden Crown Literary Society Awards, one Lesbian Fiction Readers' Choice Award, and an Alice B. Toklas Award for her body of work.

A Question of Ghosts won a 2012 Rainbow Award as Best Lesbian Paranormal/Horror. Windigo Thrall is a finalist for the 2014 Rainbow Awards, Lesbian Paranormal Romance Category, to be announced on December 8.

Becca Healy always believed she understood the shameful circumstances of her mother’s death—until the night her mother’s spirit whispers a simple message out of the static of a radio: “Not true.” Becca turns to the terse Dr. Joanne Call, an expert in Electronic Voice Phenomenon—ghost voices—to unravel the mystery of this decades-old tragedy. Joanne can coax messages out of the silence of the grave, but coping with this feisty, emotional Healy person might be completely beyond her. Together, Becca and Jo must tackle childhood grief, a serial killer, Xena withdrawal, and a growing attraction between the two most mismatched women in Seattle.
