I’m Cat, an RPG writer and designer with a flair for the dark, dramatic, and occasionally surreal. I’ve created settings and stories for some of the best-known role-playing games on the market as well as developing my own worlds for others to play in. Magic, witches, and long shadows abound.
I'm interested in how things work. Concepts of magic, fantasy sociology, and logical futurism are a speciality, and however strange the worlds I make become, there's a line of logic running through them that makes it easy to both believe and immerse in them.

WHAT I DO
RPG WRITING FOR HIRE
Although some projects have yet to see the light of day, I've been lucky enough to write for:
Altered Carbon RPG
Vampire: the Masquerade 5th edition
Mage: the Ascension 20th anniversary edition
Age of Sigmar: Soulbound
Hearts of Wulin
Whispers in the Dark
D&D Adventurers League (Season 9)
INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING & COMMUNITY CONTENT
I got my start in RPG writing on the DMs Guild, making supplementary content for Dungeons & Dragons, including the ENnie nominated Uncaged and Book of Seasons anthologies. I'm best known for my Gothic Earth and Ravenloft books, the Eat the Rich! anthology (co-lead with Alicia Furness), and Masks of Theros (co-lead with Steffie de Vaan).
Writing and publishing my own content meant I also had to learn how to make it look good. I've discovered a whole new passion for design, and applied it to my own work (e.g. Eat the Rich anthology), and books for clients such as The Princess Project anthology and Alicia Furness' Camp Flying Moose.
