Cathy Torres grew up the small East Texas town of Lindale. Shortly after high school at 18 years old, she joined the United States Marine Corps and was stationed in Okinawa, Japan and finished her four year enlistment in southern California. Soon after, she started college at Baylor University where she graduated with a B.A. in Professional Writing in 2007. The following summer, she became a flight attendant at a major airline where Cathy continues to fly the friendly skies. In 2014, she completed a second B.A. and the Screenwriting Certificate at The New School. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
Cathy read Ellen's blog and book in 2007 and connected with her on Facebook. Years later they reconnected and a writing partnership was born! Their goal is to bring the secret lives of flight crews to big and small screens worldwide.
