In my more than 20 years in publishing, I've worn a bunch of hats. Among my many titles have been proofreader, copyeditor, project editor, and senior editor. As the author of more than 60 books for readers of all ages, I've written on a wide variety of topics, including art, animals, and ASL. And that's just starting with the As! When not writing and editing, I teach fiction writing and provide editorial services to aspiring writers. I also blog at The Cath in the Hat. And recently, I've donned yet another hat. I'm a reporter for News-O-Matic, an interactive daily newspaper for kids ages 7 to 10, published by Press4Kids.
I'm a longtime member of The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, PennWriters, and The Authors Guild. I live in the Philadelphia area with my husband and our much pampered pug.
