Author Catherine Raphael discusses her new epic fantasy novel, Journey to the Heart Stone. A long-time fan of the genre, Catherine started writing Journey to the Heart Stone because she was frustrated with the skewed portrayal of women in most fantasy novels. They were either the damsel in distress or the evil, old crone. So, Catherine set out to build a world that showed the breadth of female power, and her main character is a 37-year-old woman who must unite three warring tribes and restore peace…all while pregnant.
