Well Hello There!

Catherine Underhill Fitzpatrick


Hello and welcome to my site.

Fair warning: I’m an author with a writing style rarely described as succinct.

For readers who prefer spare prose, you’d best move on. For those who love writing that’s lush, descriptive, painterly, and character-driven, who value a journey dotted with colorful cul de sacs, who savor a lyrical, lingering passage more than a sprint to the climactic denouement, for those who can digest four-syllable words and subordinate-clause sentences, rather like this one, well then, you’ve come to the right place.

So go if you must or stay if you like.

One more thing: Just as soon as it’s safe to do so, I will schedule author talks and book signings with readers across the country. Meanwhile, if you and your friends, your neighbors, or your book club would like me to arrange a Zoom author talk to discuss any of my books, or on the topic of memoir-writing, you can get in touch with me through the contact page on this site.
