"These days, back in Louisiana, you can usually find Kat in her kitchen - cooking up pound cakes, pies, and a green dinosaur pancake or two.."
KAT PIGOTT lives in Louisiana - a long way from her hometown of Savannah, Georgia.
As a child, she loved to dance. By the age of six, she starred in local radio and television ads, and later she had many roles in Savannah Little Theatre productions.
Kat moved to Atlanta, acquiring a catering sales position in a large convention hotel. Thus, the granddaughter and daughter of caterers began a long career as a Catering Director. When she eventually returned to Savannah, Kat continued the same work in a historical hotel. There, she met and married her husband, and they moved to Louisiana.
After a stint as the proprietor of a tea room, Kat traveled as chef to a writers' group in the south of France and Paris. It was during these retreats that she found inspiration to write children's
Kat founded a highly successful bi-weekly class of volunteer teachers who worked with children reading below their grade level. Also, she created the Kids Kitchen, a unique summer program including not only a healthy lunch, but also a variety of academic, physical, and art activities.
Kat then opened two food pantries - one in Louisiana, and later, one in Alabama, serving the elderly in their homes, and homeless in the streets. She received the Louisiana Governor's recognition for dedicated service to her community.
When her husband was transferred to Birmingham, Alabama, Kat worked at a United Way agency where she delivered prenatal and parenting education to pregnant and parenting teens in 11 county schools. She directed the "Back to School" and "Project Christmas" programs that provided needy children school supplies, clothing, toys, and books.
These days, back in Louisiana, you can usually find Kat in her kitchen - cooking up pound cakes, pies, and a green dinosaur pancake or two. Living in the country, she tends to a large vegetable garden each summer and fall, and she chases around her two egg-laying hens, Eunice and Vera. She enjoys watercolor painting, and, of course, writing for kids.
Kat has completed many children's books, including a sequel to Green Dinosaur Pancakes, and a set of children's educational travel books, featuring Minu, a Cajun cat. Kat is working on a novel Oranges for Chloe, a story about an underprivileged child from Louisiana.
She is also working with her sister, Pamela, on a cookbook inspired by their mother and grandmother. Kat is a member of the Zona Rosa's Writers Group and the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
