a 30-year-old cat from The Gingerbread House

"There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about."

Well, I suppose most find me to be a strange person, but I think that's a matter of opinion really. I'm something of a recluse, I haunt my house, writing somewhat macabre story books, drinking tea and eating lamingtons. I learn poetry off by heart for fun. I also make hats. I love dressing up and do so every day, regardless of how odd I probably look. I'm usually seen donning Victorian lady's or gentlemen's mourning attire.
I am working on three books, the first of which I'm hoping to publish early next year. Writing is my passion and I will admit that I am a little, no, very addicted to it. I speak Japanese although not fluently, and am gradually learning Scottish Gaelic and French. I am from beautiful little New Zealand, which I suppose makes me lovely and friendly by default, though I did live in Scotland for some time, which I think turned me a little cynical and mean. I'm a bit of a free spirit, I move from place to place frequently, and try to fill my life with as many different and interesting experiences as possible. I love to travel and experience the world, alas, if only I had the money to do it all the time!
Err, what else...? 9/10 people firmly believe that I will be the batty old cat lady fifty years from now, although I do aim to be more of the glamorous Barbara Cartland type. As for sports, I enjoy ice-skating, fencing and badminton. I believe in being positive, enjoying life, smiling, and being happy even if for no reason.

As for my writing, well I probably won't be putting much up here to be honest. I am very protective of my brainchildren. I've been scribbling stories since I was old enough to handle a pencil, but very few are ever privy to my stories or poems. Which is utterly stupid, I realise. I'll try and get a bit up for you all, for the sake of contributing and all that. :)
