I was born and raised outside Kansas City. I have always been crazy about three things, books, cats, and history. Any chance to combine the three is a bonus.
I have lived in beautiful cities like New Orleans, and San Francisco, but currently calls Kansas City home. I have had the pleasure of sharing my life with six wonderful cats and eight mice (not all at one time.) Right now she has one cat and one mouse.
I’ve always been a story teller. This made for some interesting missing homework and late for curfew tales. But I’ve never had a head for the pedantic rules of grammar and spelling. This made for some interesting comma placement and spelling choices. About ten years ago I decided to figure out how to share my stories, in spite of my shortcomings. I’m lucky to have great colleagues who can help me with the fine details.
My favorite class in school was American History. The Colonial Cat’s series gives me a chance to write about the great history of the United States and cats!
