About JC Catlin   2 comments

JC CatlinBorn in Connecticut to a loving couple, JC Catlin grew up loving the sights, smells, and sounds that New England has to offer.  He grew up fishing and participating in sports.  He attended a local community college, but one of his goals as a teenager was to attend a college in Boston.  He was accepted into a music school, but chose instead to pursue his Bachelor of Science degree.

JC was more of a math geek than an English freak in high school; nevertheless, he did well in his English classes.  The foreshadowing of his future career began with a writing class he took to fulfill a college requirement.  The handwriting was on the wall, so to speak, after he transferred to Boston where he wrote essays and reviews for a literature course.

He eventually became a technical writer, writing instructions and guides for users of business software.  Creative writing became a hobby of sorts after a new-fangled technology called “the Internet” burst onto the scene.  Eventually, he felt the tug of the creative bug and began writing several books, none of which were close to being completed.  A couple of years later, he found a manuscript and read it to a friend.  The friend encouraged him to continue and get it published.  He did—and thus began his writing career beyond the technical realm.

His parents are still together after 50+ years of marriage.  He has an older brother and three grown children.

Music, photography, graphic arts, and writing have always been his creative outlets.  The beach, the woods, and the mountains are all places where he likes to spend his time.  Nature, certains texts and poems, and the fortitude and inner strength of people he meets along the way are sources of inspiration.  He wishes that anyone reading this will also find their creative outlet.  It can be a wonderful way to express yourself, find relaxation, and even give others a little joy.  We could certainly use more joy in this world.

  1. Great picture JC! It’s nice to have a picture with the name. This is a very cool site, I look forward to reading it when I get back from vacation. Years ago I took a correspondence course on writing Children books . . . I ended up writing what they said was the least likely to get published (go figure!) . . . a story written in rhyme . . . So I never did anything with it . . . What kind of music were you into?

  2. Thanks, Ana! That’s too bad about the children’s book that you wrote; however, do not despair. You can have it self-published. If you’d like more info about it, let me know.
