About Kathy

So good at comedy that she even managed to make death laugh-out-loud funny in her books "Funerals to Die For: The Craziest, Creepiest, and Most Bizarre Funeral Traditions and Practices Ever" (Adams Media, 2013), "It's Your Funeral! Plan the Celebration of a Lifetime -- Before It's Too Late" (Quirk Books, 2021), Kathy has written humorous non-fiction as her full-time job since 2009. Her articles for sites like Cracked, Grunge, and Mental Floss have been discussed everywhere from podcasts and international radio to "Chelsea Lately" and "The View." She's also the author of "Texas Mass Graves: Burial Grounds of Atrocity, Massacre and Battle" (The History Press, 2022) and the forthcoming "Lady Undertakers of Old Texas" (The History Press, 2023).

Her spec pilot "Yanks," co-written with Jennifer Bradford and Katie Stober, received a quarterfinal placement in the 2023 Scriptwriters & Co International Festival.





    YANKS Comedy Too liberal for W, too brash for the Queen, three brilliant American women navigate bad sex, binge drinking, and grad school in 2000s-era England, where “American” may as well be a four-letter word.
