About me

Occupation Freelance writer
Location Alabama/Mississippi/Tennessee
Introduction I'm a freelance writer and columnist and public-relations consultant focusing on Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. I'm also marketing director for the Tennessee Valley Art Association, which oversees the Tennessee Valley Museum of Art, in Tuscumbia, Ala., and the Ritz Theatre, in Sheffield, Ala.; writing coach/adjunct faculty member at the University of North Alabama in Florence, Ala.; and managing director of Corinth Theatre-Arts in Corinth, Miss. I was a features writer and columnist for the TimesDaily, in Florence, and my writing was in newspapers across the country through the New York Times Regional Newspapers Group. I focus on style, books, food, decorating, shopping, entertaining, history, local personalities and arts. My weekly column for the TimesDaily was about my often-chaotic but never-boring life and the shenanigans (does anybody use that word anymore?) of my family. I continue that column at my blog, Coffee with Cathy. As a freelancer, I write columns and features for regional publications as well as online content for design and marketing companies and create and produce publicity for non-profits. I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 1979.
