Special Song “Amazing Grace”–my mother used to sing it to me as a lullaby when I was a baby.
The book that inspired me to become a writer “The Rowan” by Anne McCaffrey. I read that book so much as a teenager, I completely destroyed TWO paperback copies! (I have a hardcover version now, and I still read it from time to time.)
About Me I’m a 30-something gal in a long-term relationship, born and raised in New Jersey (though you might not know it, as my vocabulary has been influenced by Canadian spelling and British slang).

I currently live with my (semi-)retired mother, and we’re both owned by four housecats–Oreo, Mystic, Lord James Grey and Tom. My cat Moonstone, who was my special girl, died as of October 2014. We also had three more which passed away a few years back–Casper, Angel, and Moonstone’s daddy Stormy. (James, Moonstone, Casper and Stormy were all rescued by me. My godmother, a professional animal rescuer, recovered Mystic, Oreo and Angel, then gave them to myself and Mum. And my fiance rescued Tom.)

Needless to say, I’m an animal rights supporter (but I hate PETA). I also consider myself an ally of the LGBT+ community, and I am a feminist and environmentalist. I don’t ascribe to any one religion, although my prefered scripture is the Tao te Ching.

Being of Italian-American stock, I of course love to cook delicious food that involves all the senses… as well as eating what my mother cooks for me. Mum makes a mean Beef Paprika dish!

Mostly, I write stuff. And, like the Egyptians and the Internet, I put cat pictures on my walls. Also, I can read your Tarot.
