Catharine Bramkamp spends far too much time repeatedly catching boomerang children and desperately throwing them back out into the world. When she’s not begging, er, encouraging her oldest child to launch, she works as an adjunct professor for two universities and coaches writers to publication success and produces a podcast for writers. She also performs dangerous stunts like preventing her mother from flipping off Syrian officials in customs.

When she’s not keeping her mother on the straight and narrow, Catharine is busy drinking wine.  A lot of wine.

  1. Thanks Catharine for reminding me that there is art and images and inspiration all around us. Too much to capture everything and so sometime later on, it pops up and you wonder “Where did I see that?”. Truly reminds me that we got stck in the old bus here on Friday. It was around 38C (in your temps) or just damn hot as we say here. We were heading to the coast to get the bus fixed and it stopped. Our tow truck driver took us 109 miles to the repair place and later my Evil F. Bunny (wife) said “It was like he was right out of the cast of American Graffiti, right out of 1962!” Someday those images will surface again.
    Thanks again.
