Admission of Guilt

Book Review   by:LindaCorby     Original Authors: Cathy Jordan; review by Linda Corby
ª
 
Admission of Guilt by Cathy Jourdan is a collection of prison stories that really get into the nitty gritty like you would not believe. The
plots are riveting and the characters are lively Cathy Jourdan has done
a mind-blowing job of this her very first book. Once you start reading
the opening paragraph you''re hooked and have to read it right through! Cathy
is a wonderful Lady and I am proud to be her screen-writing partner. I
feel privileged to have been one of the first to buy this book.
Man/woman can this Lady write! You bet ya! Cathy and I have
written a number of screenplays between us, she never fails to amaze me
with her talent and wonderful personality Cathy Jourdan was
born in Miami , Florida in 1955 and grew up in a variety of places
because her father was in the Navy. When she was young, she was in awe
of the big world around her. Unlike many of her friends who were so sad
when their fathers were transferred, she was always ready to move on to
the next adventure. She is referred to by her friends and family as a
gypsy and a dreamer. Having travelled the world, she continues to make
her home wherever she and her husband of thirty two years happen to be.
She has been a lifelong student and finally decided it was time
to focus and finish a BS in Counselling from Oral Roberts University of
Tulsa, OK. Cathy joined the Air Force in 1977 which was the perfect
choice for a wonder-lust. She stayed in the military for ten years and
finally went back to Ohio where her family had finally settled after retirement. It was here that she began working at a men''s, medium
security prison, and it was here that she really began to focus on
writing. While she realized she didn''t want to make the prison her
career, she did stay for ten years, working various jobs throughout
that time. "She didn''t have a death wish and but that is sort of what
working there sort of made her feel like". However, tCathy found just
so much inspiration for stories that it took a while for her to tear
herself away." Finally, in 2000 she went back to her birth state to
soak up a little sun. Cathy has been writing for many years. On
occasion writing non-fiction and screenplays, her real passion is for
the freedom of writing fiction. Her collection of short stories is
certainly evidence of that. Her thought provoking style of writing
creates three dimensional characters you won''t soon forget. She
continues to write and will soon have her first non-fiction book
complete. Admission of Guilt is one book not to be missed!
