Living and teaching in Cullowhee, North Carolina, at Western Carolina University, Catherine shares quarters with a spouse, two cats, some wild things (mice, birds, insects, weeds), and many, many bees. She grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, a more coastal environment but just as rural, and her poems tend to reflect that. Living in the mountains has taught her to whitewater kayak, keep some backyard bees, split wood, and do a little canning and preserving on occasion. If by some chance you want to know more details about her academic and creative work you can check out her CV or her page at the Poetry Foundation.
