Profile Information

Catharine Leona Joy Minter Parks was born in Chatham Ontario on June 5, 1953 to a Canadian mother and an American father. Her early childhood was spent in the church growing up under a strict upbringing but at an early age started to desire more. With an adventuresome spirit she would join her brother in escaping the house after bedtime and going downtown with him to dances, plays and the movies, to enjoy all the things that her religious parents denied her.

Spending her earlier years in Windsor and drawing for countless hours, Catharine creative by nature, passionate in design, an artist was born. Catharine sold her first art work in grade 5, chosen from the art museum where it hung on display, a cartoon caricature from the old comic strip, Lil' Abner.

Catharine's love of words started from early childhood when she would make up fictitious words and songs. She has been a songwriter since 1983. Entering a gospel songwriters/singer talent contest in Montreal, she ended having a finalist spot in 2005, but left Quebec to return to Ontario shortly after.

On January 25, 2007, she published her first devotional, A Glimpse of the Cross, on the Mustard Seed Ministries Site. Cliffhanger was published in Fate Magazine Nov. 2007
