About Cathy

NY Times and USA Today bestselling author CATHY MCDAVID wrote her first book at sixteen. The self-illustrated children’s story featured a young girl whose lack of responsibility nearly resulted in the demise of her pet fish. It’s quite possible the book was an autobiography, but Cathy’s not telling. She wrote her second book, and first romance, at nineteen with the help of a portable Smith Corona typewriter. One never knows how the unrequited crush on a college professor will affect their eventual career. These days, with over 57 titles and 1.6 million books in print, she still incorporates a little of her own life in each story. A lover of all things western and former avid horsewoman, her stories include riding, ranching, and rodeo because, well, who doesn’t enjoy a good cowboy romance? Mother of grown twins and married to her own real-life sweetheart, Cathy is living her dream penning heart-stopping suspense thrillers and heart-touching family dramas for Harlequin.

The thrill of a lifetime!

On April 8, 2024, I spoke at the governor of Arizona’s press conference when she signed a bill into law for long-term care reform. Since 2021, I’ve been working to raise awareness and promote change in the elder care industry with the goal of improving the quality of life and safety of our vulnerable loved ones residing in facilities.

The new law is just the first step. I plan on continuing my work with AARP and The Alzheimer’s Association and using my writer’s platform to keep the momentum going and effect more change.
