December 4, 2008
created this website in 2008 it
was not just to write down facts
about the Catherine Saga,
but also to entertain those who
came by and have a look at the
Catherine de Montsalvy website.
or websites had to be created by
its owners and facts were not as
easily to be added or just
copied from other sources !! My
visitors interacted with me and
showed their delight by
supporting me with sending
material which could be useful
for making this an attractive
place to visit.
For that reason, I created out
of gratitude on December 2008,
(together with my sister Evelyne/Laluna,
who designed the prize), the
C.M.F AWARD! The reaction of
the visitors was fabulous.
Of course it is
not the OSCAR or another famous AWARD yet this one comes
from the heart...!
FROM ME TO YOU ALL
With great pleasure,
my sister and I
announce our newest C.M.F Award
winner. It is none other than the beautiful and lovely Catherine
Poland. She shares the name with our
heroine, and was one of the FIRST visitors who commented on my youtube clips, at
a time when there existed absolutely nothing about our
beloved Catherine Juliette Benzoni's
heroine on youtube! She followed with interest how I prepared to
my website - send me words of encouragement.
She herself is a very faithful fan of Catherine and adores their characters.
Catherine is a
journalist and she speaks superbly
English. I am very happy to call her my friend and it was time
I remembered to show my
gratitude towards such a faithful friend.
With great pleasure and joy we like
to present our dear friend Hélène from France, a special
Christmas surprise! During the year, Hélène has spoiled us
many a time with her precious and beautiful
creations concerning the
world of Catherine and Le Gerfaut.
Her entries in our chat-box, guest
book or her personal mails, are sweet, amusing, and full of
life. In reality a
Le Gerfaut fan, she adopted our Catherine and Arnaud
likewise and has become one of our most faithful visitors.
Thank you Hélène and welcome in the
Hall of Fame !
Jean Brittain from Scotland
Our newest Award winner is from Scotland.
Jean is maybe the very first person I got in contact via youtube
because of my Catherine clips! There is a very
interesting detail to say about her. She comes from the precise place where
Hugh Kennedy had his castle at Arstinchar ! All of you, who have read
Catherine, might remember
the nice Scottish Chevalier who came to replace Arnaud de Montsalvy at Carlat
in BELLE CATHERINE. Without
you dear Jean, we would not have known all these many extra
information about that famous Scottish Knight. A man who was one
of Joan of Arc's captains and who had King Charles VII trust. It
is really my outmost pleasure to give this symbolic Award to you
Katarzyna from Poland
With great pleasure we like to announce
the name of our new winner which is Katarzyna. She has been with us from the very beginning
following us faithfully from youtube to the day I
launched this website in 2008. Katarzyna (which is the
Polish way to say Catherine by the way...)
spoilt us with photos, articles, important e-mail adresses
last but not least helped the beginner that I was when
something really looked aweful on the website ☺
winner is Frédérique, who herself has a BLOG in France,
concerning everything about the world of Juliette
She is also the one who translates my English text for my
website. She surprises me from time to time with great book covers,
we are after. And I have called her the book hunter number one and
of finding new countries where the Catherine books were
published many years ago!
I have chosen
in February 2009 to have the AWARD - a lot has happened!
JouJou as is her nickname, is my soulmate and best friend
in France. Together we have been invited to visit our
beloved Juliette Benzoni author of so far * 76 books.
One of our favorite Slogan between us is: WHAT NEXT, WHAT NEXT ???
*in the meantime Juliette Benzoni has written over 83
Costa Rica (Poland)
It was not
easy to choose who should be the first winner of
the new C.M.F AWARD. Aleksandra is from Poland,
but lives with her family in Costa Rica. She
packed all her Catherine books in her trunk to
bring them to Costa Rica. She is also one of the
very first website visitors we had and is until
this day a very faithful follower. Thank you Aleksandra for your kindness and sharing
with us so much
material. For the time you invest, sending us photos from
which you found on the Net or especially took
screenshots or book covers, email adresses
and other awesome items concerning the world of
Catherine de Montsalvy.
