She was inducted into the Filk Hall of Fame in only the second year of its existence. With Lindy Sears, she instigated the Dandelion Conspiracy to promote filk to general SF conventions. Kathy lives in San Leandro, CA in a commune and is the mother of Michael (1970-1982), Melanie (1972) and twins Nicolas and Cassandra (1985). Her primary life partner Dean Dierschow (familiar as her most devoted roadie) lives there with her in a wonderful ongoing courtship. She was very involved in the antiwar movement in the sixties and sang in Kansas City for the first Moratorium.
She has appeared as filk GOH at almost every filk convention and many regular SF conventions as well.
