Introduction I'm Catherine Nichols, aka the Cath in the Hat, and I write and edit children's books for a living (well, what passes for a living). When I was first learning to read--many, many moons ago--the books in my classroom were all of the Dick and Jane variety. Luckily, at home we had well-thumbed copies of The Cat in the Hat, Little Bear, Are You My Mother, and Danny and the Dinosaur. School taught me how to read. Dr. Seuss and company taught me to love reading.
Interests Hmmmm, let's see, pugs and pug paraphernalia, NY Times crosswords and acrostics (in ink), good wine, coffee (no sugar please), swimming, long walks, cycling, and books, books, and more books
