ABOUT




Cate Bronson is a Canadian-American author and Writer’s Digest mainstream literary short story winner. As a political science graduate and an investment accountant turned writer of speculative fiction and nonfiction, she has authored stories and articles for many publications. In 2018, Cate became a contributing author to Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Her love for science and fiction began as a child with Gene Roddenberry's original Star Trek series and later Carl Sagan's Cosmos. Cate's fascination grew with exposure to the works of Isaac Asimov, Ayn Rand, Philip K. Dick, Robert Heinlein, Larry Niven, and Michael Crichton. Her writing reflects these influences and her passion for exploring what makes the cosmos and everything in it tick. 

Cate’s storytelling embraces several mediums: novellas, novels, nonfiction books, and articles. Her newest release is the dystopian hard science fiction eBook Clonedroid:The New Wave available on Amazon, March 31, 2019 (the paperback will be available soon). In a similar vein as her favorite authors, this futuristic story about genetic engineering and artificial intelligence focuses on the ethical dilemmas of playing God and the pitfalls of advancing technology without appropriate safeguards. It probes the many challenges that face our global societies today.

On the lighter side, her nonfiction centers closer to home, focusing on her family and devotion to animal welfare. Cate is currently at work on the nonfiction book Living Life Sideways a tale about life with a rescued racing dog, and the narrative nonfiction, Blue Mountain, an epic story about a family that faces adversity and tragedy while perusing a rustic dream in depression-era and wartime Canada.


Nonfiction pieces and articles by Cate include, Going Grey, which published in the winter 2014-2015 issue of THE NEW BARKER magazine; and, A Lifelong Underdog Finally Goes Home A Winner, which published in spring 2014 issue of the same magazine.

Cate’s fiction shorts include One More Day, which published with CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL (My Crazy Family) in 2018; The Last Laugh in the anthology WHAT A CHARACTERSightseeing in the anthology LET'S TALKThe Black Death in the anthology ZOMBIE NATION: ST. PETE; and, Dreams of Home in THE FLORIDA WRITER magazine.

As an active member of the Florida Writers Association, Cate contributed to the Florida Writers Association, Writer's Groups as a critique group leader and mentor in St. Petersburg, providing online assistance to writers interested in improving their craft. She has also participated in the “Mayor's Youth Showcase of Achievement” as a literary judge. 

Much of Cate’s nonfiction centers on her life as a veteran greyhound owner, foster parent, and rescue volunteer. She is proud to have actively supported Florida's Constitutional Amendment 13 in an effort to protect dogs. On November 6, 2018, the amendment passed by an overwhelming majority during the state election. This measure will phase out dog racing in the state of Florida over a two-year period and save thousands of dogs from ongoing exploitation. Along with a growing number of caring people, Cate believes g
reyhounds should grow up as pets like other breeds, and not endure a life as the disposable commodities of greed. She also believes that voters have the right to decide how their tax dollars are spent in relation to propping up a decaying industry rooted in animal exploitation. During the November election, Florida voters spoke loud and clear in support of ending dog racing in the state, and protecting future greyhounds from the injuries, illnesses, and deaths related to track life.

Cate lives in Florida with her husband and rescued racing dogs. When she is not writing, she spends time reading in the sunshine while giant hounds lounge by her side.
