Kathie Truitt grew up in a home where entertaining was a constant, and manners and etiquette were of the utmost importance. While she didn’t care for those rigid rules at the time, it molded her into the notable Hostess, Influencer and Lifestyle expert she is today.

Kathie’s true passion is writing. Her first novel ‘False Victim’ became a Lifetime Movie titled ‘The Neighbor in the Window’ starring Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jenn Lyon. Her latest novel “The Hillbilly Debutante Cafe” has also been purchased for movie rights.

Kathie studied at Patricia Stevens Fashion College where she majored in Fashion Merchandise and Interior Design. She also is a certified Etiquette Professional under the tutelage of international expert Cynthia Lett of The Lett Group.

Always a Texas lady at heart, Kathie now resides in Palmas Del Mar, Puerto Rico with husband Jay, and 2 adorable dogs, Lillian and Willow.
