Cathy Free

I'm a journalist who has spent the past 35 years writing newspaper columns and features, along with in-depth human interest stories for Reader's Digest, Family Circle and Good Housekeeping. Currently, I primarily write for People Magazine -- a relationship that goes back more than three decades. As a married mother of two teenagers, my life is entering a new phase now that my son has left for college. What better way to cope, I decided, than to tell my own stories for a change. : )
