So, who is this Cat person, anyway? Well, like anything complex, it's hard to put into fifty words or less...
I've been around for what seems like centuries - sometimes it's hard to believe it's only been twenty-six years. But hey, it's not a bad life. I love working in my library and I'm currently studying to become a full Library Technician at Western Melbourne College of TAFE, with the ultimate ambition of doing my librarianship sometime in the next millenium and opening my own speculative fiction library... Well, it's a dream...
I've also been a writer for about fourteen years - geez, those adolescent hormones sometimes spark off good things! Wow! At the moment I seem to be concentrating on writing the Fairburn stuff, but one day I will get back to my fantasy worlds.
I suppose I'd better get it out in the open now... yes, I'm a Trekker; even worse, I'm also into Babylon 5, Red Dwarf, and in fact most recent television sci-fi. I'm admitting it here coz it was either that or have it branded across my forehead... 8-)
As to why I've named myself Cat? Well, it was first used when I was working at a girl scout camp... but I'm not really sure why I chose that as my camp name! To say I love cats is an understatement, (just look at my two guys here!) but it's not just that. As I mentioned above, I also love a UK television show called Red Dwarf. Those who know me will testify that I am nothing like the Cat featured on that program (a little more like Duane Dibbley, actually!), but we've all got to laugh sometimes, right?
Oh, and as for my real name and photo? Well, my name can be found somewhere in the Fairburn pages... And a photo? Well... you're in luck! The Cat has caught enough mice to be able to buy a scanner of her own! heheheh! So without further ado, here it is (you sad buggers!):
