Catherine Arguelles

I am a writer and a mom in Northern California. When I’m not writing or actively parenting, you can find me volunteering in elementary school classrooms, cruising in my minivan, and taking long walks in the neighborhood, mostly for mental health.

Writing sneaks up on me… Whether it’s composing descriptions for the school auction brochure, creating witty posts for the PTO Facebook page, or editing marketing pieces for local nonprofits, I often find myself taking on a writing role.

I’m a fan of big oaky Chardonnays, movie musicals, and gluten-free cupcakes loaded with buttercream frosting. I wrote at least three college papers on Pride and Prejudice without ever actually finishing the book. I also wrote three college papers on Jane Eyre, but that one I finished.
