About the author:

Catharine Gately Handfelt, creator, writer, and photographer of the successful "100 Hounds of Kirkland" project, studied literature and art history at Yale University and earned her Master's degree in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. Catharine enjoys storytelling that touches the heart and, as a devoted dog rescuer, is especially inspired when capturing the essence of human-canine relationships through her lens. She is the owner of Little Monarch Studios, specializing in on-location, natural-light photography of children, families, and, of course, dogs. In her free time, Catharine loves to hit the road with her family and her camera for a great adventure, especially when her dogs are along for the ride. She lives in Kirkland, Washington, with her husband, their two children, their two Wheaten Terriers, Barkley and Roxy, and a new, not-so-little German Shepherd puppy named Oskar.
