Catherine T. Horn
Catherine Horn, an Associate Letters member, is a retired Educator/School Psychologist whose greatest passions in life are her family, children and writing. She believes that, for her, there is no better form of creative expression than writing; no greater joy than to find the right words, phrases, and sentences to integrate ideas, thoughts, and feelings that converge to create the stories of our lives. To that end, Catherine has been writing for as long as she can remember, beginning with diaries and journal entries, lovesick poems with the kind of angst only teenagers can exude, and high school and college newspaper articles. As an adult, Catherine has written numerous stories for children, countless Psychoeducational Evaluation Reports, articles and presentations for parents, and eulogies for far too many family members. Catherine’s poetry writing has continued and has evolved into more mature, current themes including the pandemic and social injustice. In recent years, Catherine has ventured into writing memoir which she finds fascinating and rewarding.
