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 fiction, nonfiction and children's books. 

In 2015, she wrote a screenplay based on her novel, Reunion.
