overheard on my telephone:

thomas: she’s out in the living room, and he’s watching television
me: who died?
thomas: nobody died
me: then who’s funeral did she go to?
thomas: mommy, have you lost it?
me: what do you mean?
thomas: nobody went to a funeral
me: you said that’s where kathy’s gone off to
thomas: no. i said she’s out in the living room. i never said anybody’d gone to no funeral.

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
