Fort Walton Beach author Catherin Elizabet Belle announces the nationwide release of her new thriller novel, “The Cabin,” where she tells the story of a young girl, orphaned by violence, who turns to the only other family she has: the Mescalero Apache.

The story introduces readers to Catherin Cahill, who has spent her life on Bar C riding the range with her father and is considered to be a drover fit to “ride the trail with.” She also spent a large portion of her time living with the Mescalero Apache, where she trained with the young warriors

After the slaughter of her parents, she returns to the Mescalero Apache Reservation for a time of healing and reflection. The mystery of who killed her parents and for what reason haunts her mind like the thorn of a cactus stuck in the saddle riles the horse.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher's website, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.

Belle spent her youth on the family farm and ranch near the German community of Rowena, Texas. Spending her adult life in the corporate world, she maintains her heart and soul is still mired in the land and the animals that inhabit it. She attended numerous educational facilities, but she insists that her best education came from the “School of Hard Knocks.

Her professional career has been a kaleidoscope of experiences in varied career fields, leaving her well versed on a variety of topics and with a strong curiosity in others. In 2005, she closed the doors on her desktop publishing business. Retiring, she embarked on a new career with a new challenge: writing.
