My name is Mary Kathryn McCartney, though I most commonly go by Kate. Or, at least online, I also can be known as M.K., but only rarely. I was born in the 1980's, and thus spent most of my developmental life in the 90's. If this is not apparent, then you simply have not read enough into everything I do. I am happily married, and happen to have four-legging furry kids. But only one, right now. Terrible things have happened.
Writing and drawing have been my hobbies since ... well, the early 90's, so I've had a lot of time for them to be in my life but have never wanted to take them to a professional level. I mostly still stand by that, so much of my work here is deemed 'hobby that I sometimes make money off of.' I actually don't mind having a typical day job.
I enjoy gaming (console, PC, tabletop - not so much into LARP) though I've been doing less and less of it over the years. Projects just tend to take up that time, I suppose!
My weaknesses are wire-and-wood structures, concrete buildings tucked away into woods or on cliff edges, urban mazes, running water, and oddly appealing green and purple color combinations (that last one was adapted as a childhood survival tactic, mostly because my friend never let me play with the red and blue dragons. I was always stuck with the green and purple ones. To keep from going mad, I had to adjust).
The biggest inspiration in my life is the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series.
