Kate Woods is a NASA brat who became an Associate Editor for the pioneering Space Fax Daily (Cupertino, CA) from 1989 to 1992, writing alongside future Galactic Sandbox Managing Editor Agnett Bonwit. In 1994 she served for two years as the P.R. rep for Space Age Publishing Company’s Lunar Video Orbiter mission (Palo Alto, CA). She became senior writer for the Pinnacle weekly based in Hollister CA from 1997 to 2006, specializing in award-winning articles on politics, the environment, science, scandals, and additionally wrote a popular political satire column (these columns were later compiled and published in Kate’s landmark 2012 memoir, Quicksilver Chronicles). Woods now lives and works at her long-time home in the remote ghost town of New Idria, CA, where she now paints sparkly pet portraits and rails against the imbecilic mainstream news media.
