I live in the flatlands of north Texas with my fat(cat)boy, Jaks. I’m a reader, a writer, a knitter (who also crochets), and I spend entirely too much time at my computer. I’m into SciFi, Fantasy, historical fiction, mysteries, graphic novels, old style newspaper cartoon strips, and a plethora of musical genres from ambient to jazz to classical to blue grass to Celtic to whatever else I hear and like.
Jaks is the youngest of my five kitties. I started with two kittens in 1998, Jett and Shadow, then in 1999 I had another kitten, Gobi, given to me. In 2004, I lost my baby girl Shadow to osteosarcoma and got another girl kitten, Stormie three months later. Then in 2007, I got another kitten, Jaks. In 2009, I lost Jett to diabetes. In 2015, I lost Gobi when he was nearly 16, and a month later I lost Stormie to kidney failure. Now it’s just me and the fat(cat) boy.
