Cathy Hamilton is the author of sixteen books and one play, an award-winning journalist and the creator of Boyfriend in-a-Box,

a novelty gift product that landed her on the Today show, in People magazine and as Cathy Hamilton #3 on "To Tell the Truth."  


Cathy conceived and developed, one of the first online communities for boomer-aged women. The site earned the top 2007 EPpy Award (Editor & Publisher/MediaWeek) for Best Newspaper-Affiliated Web Site. Her Sunday humor column earned several awards including "Best Column" from the Kansas Press Association and Suburban Newspapers of America.

Currently, she writes features for magazines and serves as "drill sergeant" for her public library's Retirement Boot Camp program. 

In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, driving her retired husband to distraction, and teaching her grandson questionable life skills like sucking spaghetti and eating whipped cream straight from the can. 

Cathy and said husband live in the Jayhawk State. They have two adult children, one daughter-in-law, and the aforementioned spaghetti sucker.
