Capitol Hill Author Entertaining and Informing
Cathy Travis worked on Capitol Hill for 25 years as a communications director, senior advisor and political consultant for various Members of Congress until her early retirement. A native of Jonesboro, Arkansas, Travis graduated from Arkansas State University and resides in Washington, D.C.
Her first book, the award-winning Constitution Translated for Kids, continues to be hailed by partisans in all major political parties as an even-handed, non-ideological rendition of the founding U.S. document.
Travis herself has been a registered Independent for over a decade.
Since 2008, she has been writing books full time, publishing: Target Sitting (nonfiction), Remember Who You Are (novel), Elected (novel), Reunion (novel), Remarkable Journey (nonfiction/biography) and Manifesto: Staffing Capitol Hill (nonfiction).
In 2015, she wrote a screenplay based on her novel, Reunion; and in 2016, she wrote a short story (Choices) playing out a presidential race with three major candidates on the ballot, with an unresolved election and its constitutional twist.
