She pursued her bachelor of arts in Classics at the Edinburgh University. Other places that she has ever lived include Chicago, Japan, Auastralia and Melbourne. Apart from being a novelist other occupations that she has ever engaged in are being an overseer, personal tutor, performer, attendant and librarian.

One of the earliest books from Catherynne M. Valente is The Girl Who Circimvented Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. It is a fairy story of a girl, September who manages to escape from her boring life in Nebraske to Fairyland through the means of flying on The Green Wind. In Nebraske, her dad is taking part in a war whereas her mom is constructing airplanes. Life in Nebraske is full of brutality, slavery, desertion, grief and brutality. When she reaches Fairy land she is able to come across brilliant fabulous beasts. One of them is a wyvern who is amazing and unique escapades. She also ends up giving up her innocence and comrades as she discovers more than she could have thought. Nevertheless, she finds out that things are not as pretty simple in the world of magic as she thought. An alien ruler has taken over control and it is September who is propelled to repossess a spoon from the strong felon. It is during that moment when she meets with Saturday, a guy who awards you a wish with condition that you overcome him in a battle. The tale is composed of childhood memories and blamelessness which makes it suitable for both kids and adults. The tale is generally imaginative and captivating to the reader. The leading character, September plays an important role in the tale as she portrays many aptitudes such as courage, virtue, gentleness and persistency. Other backup characters include Tiffany and Gaiman. This book is best advocated for readers who like imagination and fantasy.A point reaches when she decides to return home but she changes that idea with the perception that it will be considered as cowardliness.

Afterwards she manages to construct her own ship which is both surprising and amazing. The author is able to make catherynne’s exploits interesting throughout the book. Irony is presented all through in a funny way. The story also incorporates a variety of myths and imaginary creatures. The good thing with this book is that it is suitable for both kids and adults understanding. The topics portrayed include persistence, violence, loyalty and commitment. The companionships encountered, the unwinding of stories and heartbreaks are well balanced throughout the book and the ending does not leave an unreasonable suspense.Another interesting book from Catherynne M. Valente is Deathless which is a tale of a young lady, Marya who is the leading character.

She is born from a less-fortunate household but due to her courtship with her lover, Koschei she manages to obtain a lot of wealth. The character portrayed by Marya advances in a proper way from the beginning to the end of the tale. She begins as a young and innocent lady in a family of four siblings. She spends most of her childhood indoors and observing birds flying from one place to another. Marya has other close comrades one of them being Madame Lebedeva who is a selfish witch. The other friends are Zemlehyed who is a thoughtful plant and Naganya, a gentle elf. The exploits that these characters undergo are very amusing and render the story to be more appealing. At first Marya is kind and gentle but as the story proceeds she becomes brutal as she tries to help others.

Koschei is more brutal and he has engaged in many relationships before he met with Marya. With time Marya finds out that Koschei’s lovers are doomed to be disloyal to him. Nevertheless she swears to love him forever and not follow the footsteps of the previous lovers. On the other hand, she is disturbed by the forecast that one day she will abandon Koschei and move to another guy, Ivan. There is also a dispute between Life, a character presented by his brother and Death. This dispute reaches to its maximum towards the last half of the story. It is during that moment when a Russian man staggers upon the mysterious empire belonging to Koschei. Generally, the tale is emotional and full of grief with some parts portraying pleasant moments. Humor is also presented especially where Marya attempts to gain influence over Ivan the same manner as Koschei controls her. Additionally, Ivan responds to her in the same manner that she would have responded to Koschei.

Even though Ivan is not as powerful as his brother and Marya, he demonstrates a dignified character. At some point Marya shares her home with war immigrants. Deathless is a story where mythology, certainty and magic are incorporated together to come up with a narrative of love and commitment. The plot is attractive with the imagination being magnificent with an intellectual narration. Catherynne is able to construct a tale that is exceptionally innovative and integrates the Russian legendry with imagination and twists it into a saga that a reader would not want to avoid. All characters equally have a crucial role in the tale rendering it to be more elegant.
