... to cathica, one of whose major talents is writing stories that stick with the reader long after the page is turned. Since she excels at writing horror, that is a dangerous gift, at least for her readers - and yet well worth the shivers. She also writes beautiful stories, full of emotion and observational wisdom, many of them Whoniversal fic, in which field I first discovered her. Her secondary talent lies in the inspiration she provides me, to be a better writer. In fact, I kept at "Hearts and Moons" for more than a decade because I wanted to honor a long-past prompt from her. She is also funny, thoughtful, and a definite pleasure to know. And since she and I share some geography, I swear that I shall some day have tea with her. Happy Birthday - may the day be good, and free of bears!
Oh, and she has the most beautiful handwriting I've seen in decades, and possibly my entire life.
