Cathy grew up just outside of Annapolis, Maryland, on a beautiful little point on the Chesapeake Bay.   She spent her childhood Summers boating, fishing and crabbing; and dreaming up my own stories.

After a career with the National Security Agency (NSA) that took her around the world, she now lives by the beach in Jupiter, Florida, with her golden retriever Aimee.  She is a full-time author writing mystery and spy novels, with a fun selection of children’s books as well!

She volunteers with the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County helping children read.

On Grandpop’s Lap was inspired by Cathy’s Dad and her nephew Zachary. My Dad’s favorite saying was “You need to occupy your mind”. He felt a busy mind made a happy person. Dad, I hope heaven is keeping you busy.

Love, Cathy
