Upon graduating from New York's American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Kathryn landed the ingénue lead in the classic Gothic daytime drama Dark Shadows, and later wrote My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the show. While writing the book and continuing her acting career, Kathryn launched Pomegranate Press, Ltd.

Last Dance at the Savoy, her recent book, is a touching memoir and love story that chronicles the challenges of living with her husband’s medical diagnosis of PSP (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy). Kathryn’s active and creative life nearly came to a halt when her husband, Geoff Miller, founding editor of Los Angeles magazine, was diagnosed with PSP.

PSP is often a Parkinson’s look-alike in the initial stages, but, once its unique characteristics are recognized, the course is often more rapid and less amiable to treatment. Unfortunately, PSP has not received the same attention as some related neurological diseases, and yet, as our population ages, prime-of-life diseases, such as PSP, will unfortunately increase.

While Kathryn has made a point of including insights and practical suggestions for carepartners in the book, this is far from medical reading, but instead, from the first few pages the reader will be lured into a romantic story. Last Dance at the Savoy is a love story about how this couple's commitment surmounts the daily challenges of facing an unknown future together.
