She was born on a houseboat which was moored to a dock on Bayou Teche near Le Pont-Breaux, Saint Martin Parish, Louisiana. Ms. Katie is a founding member of the Lampshade Katie Society of Arts and Humanities. Today, we find Lampshade Katie visiting a school library. Children are playing hide-and-seek in the school library during a book sale.

About the Author
Alfred "Buddy Boy" Valdez was born in Port Huron, Michigan. While living in Port Huron until the age of 12, he enjoyed cub scouts, boy scouts, and playing hockey. When he moved to Houston, Texas, Alfred continued to enjoy playing basketball and worked in a hardware store/lumber yard. At 16 years of age, he began working at a flying school washing small airplanes at Hobby Airport, and he was paid in flying lessons. During his summer months in college, he was able to work on ships as a merchant seaman, and his life as a sailor allowed him to travel to various foreign "ports of call." Alfred received several college degrees including a law degree in 1984. In 2014, he obtained an "honorary degree" in storytelling from "Campfire University." Most of his "professors" were under the age of 12 years old.
