Ekaterin's middle name is Nile. Odd coincidence that... :)
For those who don't know her, I highly reccomend getting to know Dr. Nile
Etland from the JH Schmitz Hub universe. You can get the book with her in it
(a short story and a novella) from the Baen Free Library at:
Lois has mentioned how strongly she admires Dr. Etland...
