"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not the pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. -Jane Austen in Northanger Abbey"

 My pen is always freer then my tongue.

          -Abigail Adams


....I delight in everything novel and eccentric, and would at any time give an old coat for a new idea.....

The bluebird carries the sky on his back.

Currently writing: A World Without (Fantasy, Supernatural, Solo) My newest work, inspired spontaneously by a thunderstorm. It is turning into one of my favorite stories to write in and I would love to hear your feedback!  


Her Path II (Fantasy, Romance, Solo) The second volume to Her Path (see below), which I am currently editing off-Protag.



BREAKING NEWS: Just pre-registered for my first-ever try at NaNoWriMo come November. I'm already getting amped up! (Find me under: "Katsquatch")



I express myself through various forms of art - through words, through music, through dance.  Reading and writing allows me to explore all the realms of my imagination - a pen being a paintbrush, a blank paper a world of endless possibility. 

Some of my favorite authors are Jane Austen (my favorites of her books being Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice), Washington Irving, Edgar Allan Poe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and many more. I am a sucker for the classics, and I love History, my main interest, and first love, being in early American History, the Revolutionary period. Though the more I explore different eras the more I love them as well. I enjoy reading biographies, autobiographies, and letters of people from the past. Many of my writings are influenced by this.


Currently I am reading  Essential Writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson   and  Walden (by Hendry David Thoreau)

I am also a subscriber to the Weekly Standard, which, for those unfamilar with the publication, is a conservative magazine covering politics, events, and world news filled with interesting opinions. I read each one front to back as I get them, and enjoy not only the stories and opinion, but also the variety of new words, or new ways of using them, that comes with each article.


Some of my work.....
