Born on a farm in the North Carolina Piedmont, CATHY GOHLKE was third in a family of four children. Cathy’s first novel, William Henry is a Fine Name, was awarded the 2007 Christy Award for Best Young Adult novel, was a finalist for the 2007 Christy Award for Best First Novel, and was awarded second place for the American Christian Fiction Writers 2007 Book of the Year Long Historical. Her second novel, I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires, was released in September 2008 and was chosen by Library Journal as one of the best Christian fiction books of 2008. Cathy’s writing has also appeared in Chicken Soup for the Single’s Soul and in My Turn to Care--Affirmations for Caregivers of Aging Parents as well as newspapers and magazines, and in plays and monologues produced on local stages. Her story, Meet Me at the Holly Tree, was awarded an honorable mention in the Writer’s Digest 2000 Writing Competition.

Cathy has worked as a school librarian, a drama director for adults and young people, and as a director of children’s and education ministries. Her large and interesting family, the people she’s known, and the places she’s lived--both north and south, on farms and in small towns--is where she draws inspiration for her stories, poetry, and drama. She and her husband, Dan, live in Elkton, Maryland and have two grown children.
