Perhaps one of the most generous and challenging things we can do is imagine others complexly.

About Catherine

My life is a complex mix of stories, some of which you’ll find in my writing.

I spent most of my childhood in a rural village in Canada, the type of place where your parents warn you to watch for bears when you leave the house. Much later in life I chased my spouse to Belgium, a choice that’s proved to be extremely rewarding and extremely challenging. These days I spend my time trying to define what it means to be a stranger in a strange land.

I’m a huge fan of novels, but it’s just as likely you’ll find me enjoying stories of all kinds, including comics, video games, podcasts or story based music. My early written work consists mainly of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fanfiction, which will hopefully never see the light of day. Lately I write reflections on life and am working on some short fiction that (probably) isn’t about Buffy.

The hardest thing in this world is to love in it

Spike is my greatest weakness. He's my fandom and first fictional boyfriend. He also paved the way for all of the blonde, blue-eyed boyfriends I would ever have.
