I was born and raised in Belfast, N. Ireland and emigrated to Canada with my family when I was 18. I'm married with a teenaged daughter, 2 cats and a lovely Mortgage. I also don't like to act my age and am rarely caught doing so. ^_^
When I'm not trapped in overtime hell or home renovation purgatory, I love to draw and paint and to write and I also love to read and have been seen reading cereal boxes if there's nothing else at hand. I'm a published writer (under a pen-name) and I have an unhealthy obsession with the character Severus Snape and can't stop drawing him or writing about him (paired up with Hermione Granger). I also love River Tam/Jayne Cobb and Willow Rosenberg/Spike. Then there's the doctor... I love all his incarnations, but especially eight/nine/ten and I like it even better when they're paired with Rose or Donna. AltEight/Rose is becoming a guilty (or not so guilty) pleasure. And I just love Donna/Ten to bits. There's some great fics out there Get help quick! ^_^
Recently I've been taking Egyptian Bellydance classes. It's a lot harder than it looks, but I'm having fun. It's a form of exercise I do not hate, even though I'm sometimes stiff in the hips/thighs from all that shimmying.
