She lives on Munsee-Mohican lands along the Mahicannituck River, otherwise known as New York’s Upper Hudson Valley.

Cait got both a BA and MA in English at the Kutztown University of Pennsylvania (while working 3 jobs) & remains grateful for the advice issued there by a dear friend and mentor: write every day and remember to breathe.
