Kat Groshong is an award-winning writer and an award-winning graphic designer. She is married to B the Rock Star, and together they have two kids, the Girl and Monkey Boy. They all live in an old white house on a corner in a town in Southern Michigan. There are three tomcats that live there as well who demand that the food bowl is filled to the top at all times. There are swift and dire consequences when that fails to occur.
Kat is a graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and says she (almost) always wanted to be a writer. She got her first computer in college and started her first blog in the late 1990s. Any evidence of her early blogs are long gone, thankgoodness, but she continued to write detailed and amusing email updates to her friends and family until she started her (Mostly) True Confessions blog in 2008, just about the same time she abandoned her MySpace page and joined Facebook.
Just like her first book, her blogs center around everyday life and were often sporadic during the toddler years when she worked from home and Monkey Boy was her assistant. It wasn't easy, she says, because Monkey Boy was not a good administrative assistant: he wrote illegibly, crowded the workspace with action figures, took too many breaks, and downloaded random games on her cell phone. On the upside, he could be paid in Cheerios. As a result, she still has a backlog of blogs to post.
