Cathy's portfolio includes pieces for Visit Florida, USA Today and regional and local press. In 2016, UPF published Backroads of Paradise, her travel narrative about retracing the WPA-era Florida driving tours that was featured in The New York Times.
Cathy speaks about Florida history for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), is president of the Gulfport Historical Society and runs a Pinellas South National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) group. Her non-writing resume includes Walt Disney World tour guide, banner plane ground crew, kayak guide, sailboat mate and stage manager.
She lives in Gulfport with her husband, two hound dogs (one of whom is also CL's "Barketing Director"), two cats (who may or may not have a sugar addiction) and, most likely, a frog the cats brought in as a present no one has discovered yet.
