the creative works of Kate McCartney

You May Not Believe It, But This Page Is Currently Under Construction!

Seriously, when was the last time you heard that being said?

About Me
Because I never seem to know just how much information I should divulge about myself to strangers online.

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.

Material on this site (unless otherwise noted) is 2004-2014 by Mary Kathryn McCartney. Emails can be sent to LENDRAL @ GMAIL . COM with any questions or concerns. No puppies, though. They tend to take up our bandwidth something fierce.
