Catherine Gewertz’s earliest triumph came at age 11, when she won a prize for
wiggling her nose most like a bunny. In later years, she would go on to distinguish
herself as a cocktail waitress, garage band singer, and pie baker. Along the way, she
racked up 35 years as a reporter for UPI, The Los Angeles Times and Education Week.
She loves cool mornings sipping hot coffee, long talks with good friends, and occasional
evenings out, dancing the two-step and drinking Bourbon.
