A VIVID JOURNEY OF THE SENSES AND THE SOUL “I loved ‘Catalyst in Palm Beach’! Author Casey Tennyson takes the reader on a riveting adventure of the senses and the soul. The story takes us from jet-setting to Europe, to island-hopping through the Caribbean, with colorful characters and some sketchy creepers. Catalyst is a cautionary tale of balancing levity and awareness, and learning to be vigilant about what you allow into your reality. In today’s world, we have to be critical thinkers when sifting through the news, political and religious ideologies, and the people whom we allow to be close to us. The protagonist, Cat, has an uncanny sense of being guided and protected, which allows her to be present and in-the-moment, even when danger and threats abound. As a psychotherapist, I know that many people struggle to achieve this balance. The story encourages the reader to adjust the lens through which we see things, and discover one’s own truth. Full of life lessons, hair raising moments and incredible adventures, ‘Catalyst in Palm Beach’ is irresistible and eye-opening. As an avid reader, this is a story that will stay with me and remind me to live my best life, being guided by love and not fear.” – Risa Bos, LMHC

READ THE SEQUEL “Casey Tennyson’s book ‘Catalyst in Palm Beach’ was an entertaining insightful read into South Florida shenanigans. It was also fun to read about the travel adventures to Paris, Costa Rica, The Keys and elsewhere. I know there is more to this story. I know the author held back some of the details. I’ll be the first to read the sequel.” – Susan Lundin, Contemporary Artist

SPIRITUAL CATALYST “Words have Power” and You have Power with the words in this book! “Catalyst in Palm Beach” by Casey Tennyson is a real page turner! That is, turn a page in your life! One can read the story on many levels and at different paces. I read fast then slow. On one level my mind was on vacation in Paradise, then time stood still in personal reflection. Best advice is to read it through and then read it again, or live it again which is how you will feel.

For Casey Tennyson the creative process is at work with an awareness and tremendous insight to communicate social and moral Truths. Her crafted storytelling gives voice to the colorful characters, such as Cat the protagonist, and you too get drawn in as one of the characters. Everything in life connects in the book. Past stories get told by current stories. Truths continually are revealed through metaphors. Are you listening?

With words as her creative medium, Author Casey Tennyson makes visual snap shots. Words paint a vivid mental picture that is real because it affects you emotionally and physically as you feel the relevance. Concepts such as “Words have Power” or “Hope’” or “Love” she brings to life within the reader. You think you know these concepts but keep reading her fine print. Casey Tennyson inspires you to be able to act by giving you power to choose and change.

She is asking one to remember eternal Truths … listen … be a participant of Life and increase the collective wisdom of the planet. For me, Casey Tennyson’s “Catalyst” book was truly a catalyst. The story doesn’t end … I will be reading the sequels.

Review by Xenia Psihas, ADC Art Design Culture

Nov. 2019 SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS “I got insights into life and spirituality through reading “Catalyst in Palm Beach.” Depending on who the reader might be, and what they are experiencing at that moment of their life, the insights would be experienced in unique ways. For myself, I thought a lot of mysticism was present. I enjoyed the openness of listening to that still inner voice that speaks to you and which at times one does not listen or one does ask for more in-depth clarity to the revelation. Secondly, it dealt with romanticism and how we ladies deal with it differently. I would say for myself, like the main character Cat, that it also takes me a very long time to move on if a person had penetrated my heart and soul.” – Magda Saltzman, Realtor and Matchmaker, Miami and The Palm Beaches, .

Dec. 2019  SENSITIVE WRITING STYLE “Author Casey Tennyson has a unique sensitive writing style. She is a very good writer. I am an avid reader and was intrigued with her ‘Catalyst in Palm Beach’ novel. After reading about the 20 years of life of the main character, I wanted to read about the earlier years and the years after the book ended. I now want to read all of her books. I just bought ‘Marlins Cry A Phishing Story.’ Casey Tennyson is an author that inevitably will be picked up by a publisher. Her writing is ‘best seller’ quality.” – Charles Newman, CPA

Aug. 1, 2020 The first cover was too abstract. I updated the cover showing a lifeguard station on the beach. That image seemed appropriate for this novel. Left is the original cover and right is the updated cover.
