An animal lover since infancy. A fine arts graduate who traded brushes for a computer and a long career in advertising. A freelance graphic designer and illustrator who worked in publishing and multimedia. All these passions have now morphed into writing and blogging … mostly about cats, of course.

What I Do for a Living: Cat writer, graphic designer, illustrator
What I Do for Fun: I know it's not healthy, but lying in the sun while reading a book always brings a smile to my face. Camping and hiking to beautiful places. Designing on my computer with the cat napping on my lap (as he is right now).
The Furry Members of My Household Are: My cat James (7 years old) and my lovely boyfriend (he's about 8 in cat years)
My Favorite Things to Write About Are: Anything cat, even the sad stories; also enjoy shining a light to those small details that make life interesting.
My Pet Peeves Are: Picking up hairballs. Bare feet on cold floors. Metal hangers.
My Guilty Pleasures Are: USA network shows.
How I Deal with Cat/Dog Hair: It is funny 'cause the house gets vacuumed a lot. But when it comes to my wardrobe, I wear them with pride!
What I Want to Be When I Grow Up: My plan is to keep doing what I am doing, getting better every day. But life has a way of taking you where you need to be, so probably will go with the flow.
