Born in Jackson, Michigan, in 1954, Cathe Hahn vacationed in northern Michigan as a child and developed a
lifelong love of Lake Michigan. After college, she landed a job as a seamstress
at a sail loft in Harbor Springs, and eventually bought the business. Today she
continues her role as sail maker and owner of Lake Michigan Sails & Canvas.
Ms. Hahn sailed the Chicago to Mackinac race several times, and grew to love Mackinac Island. Known as the “hallmark of
inland sailing” and held each year by the Chicago Yacht Club, the “Mac Race,” as
it is known to Great Lakes sailors, is the longest annual freshwater race in the
world. Entrance to the race is by invitation only, and has attracted some of the
top international yachtsmen.
Ms. Hanh was inspired to write Step Up! after visiting Mackinac Island with her
two daughters. The book is based on their carriage ride tour of the island, and
the friends they made with three Belgian draft horses—John, Wayne, and
Duke—and their driver Sam.Â
Ms. Hahn holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Fisheries/Wildlife from Michigan State University. Her
hobbies including painting, reading, and cooking.
