Biografie

Cat Ramos has been a Star Trek fan since The Original Series(TOS), the movies, and The Next Generation (TNG), and has been especially enamored of the Klingons and Klingon culture. She was inspired to begin writing Klingon fanfic in 1989, after reading John M. Ford's 1984 Star Trek tie-in novel The Final Reflection (TFR). Final Reflection was a complex exploration of Klingon culture and society, and has been well-received and cherished by fans (though it is considered non-canonical in the overall Trek universe).

Ramos' stories feature original characters created from her "trekkified" family and friends, and based mainly on TFR and the FASA "Starfleet" RPG materials (and canon sources when they do not conflict.) Ford was one of her major creative inspirations. As Ramos traveled for work, she gradually met new friends in Klingon fandom ('klinfandom') who liked her stories, so she continued writing a multi-part Klingon space opera, Citizen of the Empire, along with companion tales.

Ramos learned to speak Klingon and was honored to translate the handfasting vows of "our epetai John M. Ford and his Lady Lioness." Most recently, she completed a companion fanfic trilogy , Choosers of the Slain, about a Romulan destroyer and a Betazoid healer, written for some of her friends in fandom.

Cat Ramos is married, and has one daughter, Tigerlily, and four granddaughters.
