Last Dance at the Savoy is both a personal story about Scott's husband, Geoff Miller, the founding editor of Los Angeles magazine, who lived life fully despite having a terminal illness, and a sharing of her insights on dealing with the day-to-day issues of caring for someone with a progressive neurological condition. Scott "often yearned for someone to figuratively take my hand and walk with me through the difficult times; I hope through this book I can reach out to you with encouragement and practical advice."

Writing and acting have always been twin careers, each informing the other. Kathryn has a recurring role playing George Segal’s girlfriend Miriam in The Goldbergs and appeared in the 2015 mid-season launch of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. She has launched the mystery/thriller Jinxed and published the memoir, Last Dance at the Savoy.

Kathryn grew up on a farm in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. Upon graduation from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Kathryn landed the ingénue lead in the classic Gothic daytime drama Dark Shadows (ABC, 1966-1971), and starred in the 1971 MGM feature, House of Dark Shadows. Kathryn played four roles in the series: Maggie Evans, Josette du Pres, Lady Kitty Hampshire, and Rachel Drummond. Kathryn wrote Dark Shadows Memories to coincide with its 20th anniversary and Dark Shadows Companion as a 25th

 the women who worked as Bunnies), optioned by Disney for a feature film, and acquired by Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer. She also co-produced a two-hour special for the A&E Network, and a one-hour documentary for BBC-1 and Canadian TV, based on the book. Pomegranate has published over 50 nonfiction titles, including Scott’s books, Lobby Cards: The Classic Films (Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Coffee Table
