• Honing my writing skills, trying to learn as I go.
    Currently, I'm writing two very different pieces.
    One's a Love Story with lots of Hanky and quite a bit of Panky.
    The other is a Steampunk Swashbuckler of knicker gripping proportions. With only a little bit of Hanky and absolutely no Panky!

In short

  • My pseudonym is actually Kitty Merriweather but, apparently, that's too long.
    I have three pen names depending on what the genre is, the other two being versions of my actual name.
    Ffion Newcomb
    Flynn Hunter

    But Kitty Merriweather was my first and, still is, my favourite.

    I'm short and fat but not particularly ugly (well, according to my kids anyway.)

    I think I'm Hilarious, especially when I'm drunk.

    I am dyslexic.
    I wouldn't know a subordinating conjunction from a prepositional phrase having only risen to the not so lofty heights of a D in GCSE English, but I don't care.
    I know what the words mean and I know in which order they should go, I don't have to know the poncy names for them. (and it makes my spell checker go nuts, which I find very entertaining.)

    I write for the thrill of the story, for my love of words, but, mostly for my sanity.

  • I once dated Shakin' Stevens son but he dumped me because he didn't think it was fair on the groupies [he was in a band at the time] if he couldn't hook up with them.
    Yeah, That guy.
