With degrees in history, political science, and law, Kitty was an attorney for many years before gladly abandoning that always-fighting-someone lifestyle for the joys of full-time freelance writing. Her published works include a 2-volume book on the rise and fall of Gay Fad, the premier mid-20th-century glass decorating company, and several magazine articles on other glass companies of the era. Her additional passions are the NFL (go Chiefs!), antiques and collectibles, and old movies. Her latest feat has been finding and watching every Academy Award Best Picture since the first one – Wings – in 1927!
