Kathy started reading Science Fiction at the age of 14. The first novel she read was Mysterious Island by Jules Verne. This lead to other SF authors like Asimov, Heinlein and Bradbury.

At 18 she was drawn into Star Trek fandom which lead to attending her first SF WorldCon in 1967.

Costuming had been an interest since childhood and the Masquerade was the perfect venue to continue in this interest.

Kathy also contributed artwork to fanzines such as Spockanalia and Plak-Tow and published her own fanzine Galileo 7. This fanzine consisted mainly of her own artwork and selected poetry from Shirley Meech.

Although she is no longer active in the SF costuming community, she keeps active making historical costumes for herself and others.
