About Catt Foy
UPDATE: February 2010
This is my "old" Web site and has not been updated in some time, as you can see. My "new" Web site was designed in Microsoft Publisher, but unfortunately, Microsoft's newest versions of Internet Explorer do not read the Publisher Web files very accurately. Until I resolve this issue, we will all have to live with this Angelfire site.
BTW, I did graduate from St. Ambrose, married my honey of 14 years, completed my M.A. at Western Illinois University and am currently enrolled in a Master of Fine Arts low-residency program in Creative Writing, Fiction at Spalding University in Louisville, KY, where I am devoting full-time to completing a novel. I hope to update this site sometime in the coming months.
This is my senior year at St. Ambrose University. In May I graduate with a BA in English, and minors in writing and psychology. In December, I will be traveling with members of the university's English department to Ecuador, where I will be writing about their study abroad programs there. I continue to freelance as a writer and photographer, and have begun working art shows with my photography. Work on my
novel has taken a back seat to school for now, but I hope to return to it soon. I've been busy with my photography shows at Centre Station in Moline, and at the Quad Cities Botanical Center in Rock Island.

During the past couple of years, I have worked steadily with QC Magazine, and am finishing up a second Americorps stint in the education department of Americorps
I served with the

As a disaster instructor, I trained all the disaster volunteers from our chapter (over 30 people) who responded to the events of September 11, 2001.
