Cathy Breisacher

Cathy Breisacher spends her days surrounded by books working as an elementary school librarian. She first earned her Master’s Degree in Counselor Education and worked as a high school guidance counselor before earning her Master of Library Science Degree and making a career change.

Her passion is to write fun, silly, humorous picture books that will put a smile on kids’ faces. Her first two trade picture books are forthcoming: Cavekid Birthday (Charlesbridge, 2019) and The Race for the Hot Potato (Sleeping Bear Press, 2019).

Cathy lives in Central PA with her husband, Chuck. When she is not working or writing, she enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with her husband, family, friends, and youth group. She also likes learning about new technology or makerspace activities that she can incorporate into her libraries. She loves all kinds of parks – national parks, theme parks, and Central Park – and is happy when she gets a chance to visit any of these.
