Born and raised in Atlanta, Cathleen Holst is a “Georgia Peach” whose stilettos are firmly planted in the South. She has no desire to relocate anywhere good old fashioned sweet tea is not readily available. She lives just outside Atlanta with her extremely patient husband, their three children and two rambunctious dogs. Although her love of literature is not confined to one particular genre, it has always been the “feel-good” stories that have resonated with her. Calling her stories “chick-lit” does not offend her in the least. For her, these delightful easy reads are as perfect as the cherry sitting atop a banana split. Her debut novel, Everleigh in NYC, will be released in November of 2010.
