About the Author

Patricia Washburn has been catstaff since before there was an Internet. She once gave a business presentation illustrated entirely with cat pictures. She is not a crazy cat lady because the threshold for that title is two more cats than you already have. When not writing about cats, Patricia writes about cybersecurity, software, and large scientific building projects. As a single female writer of a certain age, she is practically required to have cats. She is currently supervised by two former shelter kitties, Flavia and Felix.

Patricia is available for interviews, presentations and signings in the northeastern U.S. and elsewhere by special arrangement.
