Being the thoughts, musing, and ramblings of Kate Saunders Britton; writer, reader, and blogger.

I live in Los Angeles, which I love (except for the traffic) with my husband (who I love without reservations). I am usually reading at least three books. I will read just about anything that is fantasy (Terry Pratchett, Diana Wynne Jones, and Robin McKinley are a few favorites) and watch just about anything that is science fiction (I have a very high tolerance for cheesy science fiction).

Some of the authors I reread the most are Dante, C.S. Lewis, Dorothy Sayers, Charles Williams, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jane Austen, Patricia McKillip and Robin McKinley.

I have long been fascinated by Arthurian legends, fairy tales, Narnia, and the Robin Hood stories. I am currently obsessed with Stargate (all of them, including Stargate Universe). I am also a fan of Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Dr. Who, and hope to watch more Farscape to see if I am a fan.

I like making costumes, and have made Regency gowns and Ren Faire costumes, and altered a variety of dresses and such to be steampunk. My most involved project is Regency short stays, which have been quite fun and have involved learning how to sew gussets, eyelets, and metal stays, and will eventually also include altering my red satin Regency dress to properly fit over the short stays.

This is a journal in which I talk about physics, philosophy, Dante, C.S. Lewis, fairy tales, and occasionally whatever I am currently watching, as well as any other topic that seems of interest. Please pull up a comfortable armchair and join us by the fireplace, and add your voice to the discussion if you like.

I can also be found on Goodreads, where I review books for my own edification in a very opinionated fashion.
