On the Air with Patzi Gil of Joy on Paper, Radio Interview 

Cate was thrilled to join fellow authors Bria Burton and Glen L. Erickson in a live radio interview with Patzi Gil of Joy on Paper. The live studio interview on Tuesday, October 16, 2018, focused on writing science fiction, allowing her to discuss various aspects of her latest novel, Clonedroid: The New Wave, and the impact of A.I. on our world and future. This fun session covered a range of science fiction topics and works by Cate and fellow authors, including the possibility that we are being visited by advanced extraterrestrial life. This interview also gave Cate the opportunity to discuss her recently published nonfiction story, One More Day, and her support for Amendment 13 to end dog racing in Florida. It was a fun time, as the three writers discussed literary passions and provided tips to other writers, during their feature with Patzi on Tampa Bay Tan Talk AM 1340/ FM 106.1. Also available with the free app: TuneIn Radio for Joy on Paper. For additional information about Joy on Paper, please visit Pazti on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/RadioJoyonPaper/

Amendment 13 and the Race to Save Dogs! 

Much of Cate's nonfiction centers on her life as a proud adopter, foster parent, and rescue volunteer for racing greyhounds. On November 6, 2018, Florida voters, like Cate, spoke loud and clear in support of Florida's Constitutional Amendment 13, designed to phase out dog racing in the state by 2021 and protect greyhounds from the exploitation, injuries, illnesses, and deaths too often associated with track life. Cate has been active in rescuing racing dogs and believes the best way to help greyhounds is to end their exploitation and over breeding. "Greyhounds deserve the same opportunities as other breeds, to grow up as pets and not as the disposable commodities of greed." Cate also believes that voters have the right to decide how their tax dollars are spent in relation to propping up decaying industries.

Cate would like to thank Deb Von Cannon at Urban Artist Florida Studios, LLC for her collaborative efforts on the cover design, along with her skill and creative talent in designing the eBook cover image for this book.

Short Story Publication in CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL

One More Day is an inspirational story about Cate's family and their passion for rescuing racing dogs, and saving one in particular. 

At risk of being sent to the farm, Ray needed one more day, and gained it when he walked through Cate's door. But his atypical and extreme behavior pushed limits and forced her and her husband to a breaking point. Once again, Ray came face to face with the harsh reality of only having one more day. 




In this heartfelt story, a damaged dog proves that miracles can happen and demonstrates the value behind second chances. In the process, he makes us realize that, when life gets rough, we must never give up on ourselves or on those that we love.

Short Story Publication in Anthology

Cate's short story The Last Laugh is a funny tale about the practical jokes that unfold in a sweltering, grimy steel mill.

Long, grueling shifts in dangerous conditions can erode even the most tranquil of temperaments, so fun pranks give employees a chance to let off a little steelworker steam. New hires are prime targets, falling victim to every joke, until one newbie turns the sizzling tide. His unique idea for getting even puts a nasty-tempered old-timer in his place and makes the greenhorn the hero of his crew. This story is part of the FWA anthology, WHAT A CHARACTER.

Author Book Signing at the St. Pete Pier, and Zombies

Cate enjoyed a fun-filled day attending the St. Petersburg Times Festival of Reading on Saturday October 23, 2010, to promote her story The Black Death and the Zombie Nation: St. Pete anthology. The publishers performed skits and provided readings from the book during its debut at the USF campus in downtown St. Petersburg. From there, the fun moved to the Pier. Book sales and author signings began at 5:00 p.m. on the main floor in the back room. The signings were followed by zombies dancing outside on the Pier to Michael Jackson's, Thriller (an internationally televised event that took place in both St. Petersburg,  Florida and St. Petersburg, Russia at the same time). Cate sends a warm thank you to family and friends who attended and supported her in these events.

Publication in Upcoming Anthology

After her recent short story publication, Cate received more great news. Her submission, The Black Death, has been selected for publication in an anthology, Zombie Nation: St. Pete, and just in time for the upcoming spooky, spine-chilling season.

Publication in Magazine 

It is a little ironic, given all of Cate's difficulties in keeping her work brief, that her most recent story selected for  publication would be her shortest one of all, a fifteen-hundred word piece of flash fiction called Dreams of Home, published in the September 2010 issue of The Florida Writer.
