About the Author

Catherine Gilbert Murdock grew up in small-town Connecticut, on a tiny farm with honeybees, two friendly goats, and a mess of Christmas trees.  She writes, “For the record, I did not play football or basketball in high school. I ran cross-country and track, badly, but I have absolutely no skill whatsoever with ball sports. Nor did I write much…Dairy Queen was my first stab at creative writing since high school, not counting several years as a struggling screenwriter (which followed several years as a struggling scholar). I unabashedly recommend screenwriting for mastering the art of storytelling; just don’t pin any hopes on seeing your work on the big screen. But you’ll learn so much in the process that this won’t matter. I also recommend, you know, living. I’ve been passionate about food pretty much my whole life – first eating it, now preparing and then eating it. And so it plays a pretty big role in my writing, and adds so much flavor . . . not literally, of course, but the more you can add that’s true, whether it’s emotion or geography or gardening (that’s me in the picture above), then the stronger that story is.” To learn more visit her online at
