Cat is an awarding-winning journalist who resides in Arizona with her young daughter, Brooklyn. In her downtime when she isn’t writing, Cat likes to watch her daughter’s baseball games, hang out at the river and lake, catch a movie at the local theater, travel to the mountains, volunteer with organizations within her community and enjoy family time with her mom, Anne Z. Smith, on their ranch.
The Blake’s reside in Oatman, Arizona, an old western mining town that dates back to 1903 and has burros roaming freely in town. The two met when they were eight-years-old when their families became friends. The Blake’s are high school sweethearts. They married in 2009 and own several family businesses in Oatman. Their love for animals is another big part of their lives. They couldn’t imagine not having Walter or their four German Shepard’s as their family members. They have a lot of help taking care of their animal village from their parents and other family members.
