More about Cat Blount

Cat began writing stories at a very early age but never was able to complete the stories she started. A beginning was as far as she could get. Then one day, many years and many, many, many crumpled papers later, while entertaining her small child and nephew, she wrote her first complete story from beginning to end in less than 18 minutes. That story became one of her first titles published and she has been writing complete stories ever since.

Cat is a stay-at-home mother of beautiful, amazing children and a loving wife to her loving husband of many years. She has an A.S. in Merchandising and a B.S. in Marketing. Her favorite season is summer and she has always wanted to live on a farm. She still does. She also states to have the BEST imagination in the world!
