About Cat

Cat T. Gardiner is a Long Island girl who has fallen in love with the romance of an era known as the Greatest Generation. She and her husband, now Floridians, love to explore the 1940s home front and military experience as living historians, wishing for a time machine to transport them back eight decades.

Inspired by those everyday young adults who changed the fate of the world, she writes about them, taking the reader on a romantic journey. Cat’s WWII-era novels always begin in her beloved Big Apple and surround the reader with the sights and sounds of a generation.

Second to her husband, her passion is writing Historical Fiction, WWII-era Romance. Her debut novel, A Moment Forever, was a 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Award Romance Finalist. Cat is currently preparing for publication in April 2024 the Flying with the Swallows duology, a two volume WWII Women’s Fiction/Saga. Volume One: The Lisbon Affair; Volume Two: Rendezvous in Berlin. She is also the author of thirteen Jane Austen-inspired contemporary works.

A member of the Tampa Branch of The National League of American Pen Women, Cat takes her readers on a swell journey at The 1940s Experience™ blog and gallery where she shares her writing, reenacting, and the stories of those who lived through the trials and joys of the era. It is her belief that everyone should have an understanding of the 1940s experience.
