Catherine Vouvray has been tapping out words for decades, first in the advertising world and then in the literary world. Her most recent published work is the LGBTQ+ short story “Flaming” in the anthology Out of Many One: Celebrating Diversity. It is an excerpt from her young adult novel, First and Seventeen, which she is adapting for TV.

Its script won Best Comedy Screenplay at a the Austin Micro Short Film Festival. Both shorts were completed in 2020 and are awaiting their premieres.
