NYT and USA Today bestselling author Cathy McDavid had no idea when she opened that first Walter Farley book in third grade it would be a defining moment in her life. After devouring every Black Stallion and Island Stallion book written at the time, she decided she wanted her own horse (what eight-year-old girl doesn’t?). That dream was realized a few excruciatingly long years later, and Cathy went on to have horses and ride most of her life. bio pic
Like a lot of authors, she started writing in high school (epic teenaged angst) and continued writing in college (first romance novel in between angst-filled poetry). Giving it up for a business career, she returned to writing in 1995. Like getting that first horse, it took a few excruciatingly long years to see her first book in print. Then, there was no stopping her (she learned to refine her proclivity for angst and turn it into romantic conflict). Cathy has been writing contemporary westerns/ranch stories for Harlequin American since 2006 and loving it. Every day she gets to write about hunky cowboy heroes and spunky heroines who travel the rocky road to happily-ever-after.
Cathy officially retired from the corporate world at the end of 2014. She now writes full-time from the Arizona home she shares with her sweetheart Mike and what she affectionately refers to as “the animal kingdom”, a trio of pets ruled by her 20-year-old cat. Her grown twins out and on their own, making their way in the world and, hopefully, finding their own happily-ever-after.
