On the 24th December 2018, Bonanza and The High Chaparral Universes lost one of our dear friends and writers.  Kathleen Pitts (KateP) was a prolific writer of Bonanza fanfiction who also wrote for The High Chaparral.

Born in Bristol, England, UK Kate was married with two children, and grandchildren.   She was a founding member of BonanzaBrits and eventually became the Moderator for that forum where she kindly led many to write and enjoy everything Bonanza for many years.   She was kind, patient, and always encouraging to fans old and new.

Sadly, three years before she retired from Brits and from writing, she was diagnosed with cancer.    KateP will live on through her stories, and from the many friends she made over the years.

Kate hosted her own website containing her Bonanza stories, as well as stories she and other authors wrote for The High Chaparral. After Kate’s death, there was no one left to pick up the reins to keep chaparralbonanzafanfic.com online.  It is our intent to keep Kate’s memory and her dreams alive by recreating her pages for The High Chaparral and giving  those stories a home here at WWB.  Should any author wish to have their stories removed, please reach out to us and we will honor your request.
