I joined MW in 2011. I have treasured each day since I have become a member of this family. I love and admire our talented authors who bring so much joy into my life.


I remember so vividly the first time I watched QAF. I was involved in another fandom and the wonderful lady I was betaing for, watched the show for the first time, and decided to switch her writing over to the QAF fandom. I wasn't sure if I wanted to follow, but after a couple of weeks, I took the plunge. I found where I could rent the series for seven days for $9.99. I don't believe my family saw me for all seven days. I slept maybe four hours a night while playing the shows over and over. The day my subscription was up, I went out and bought my own set of DVD's and have been obsessed every since. I am a staunch supporter of Brian and Justin, Emmett and Drew, and Ted and Blake. I think Mel can grow as a character, but I'm a solid Anti-Michael and Lindsay fan.


I was born in Paris, TX, but when I was three, my mother moved us to Minnesota as she was marrying a man from there. I became the youngest of eight children and was pretty much catered to by my older siblings. I lived in Minnesota until October 2017 when my daughter from Norfolk, VA came up and moved me down to live with her and her family. My husband had died suddenly and I was having a pretty rough time of it. I love Virginia. When you have dealt with 40 below winters for 59 years, believe me when I say I don't miss Minnesota.


In September 2018, I decided to give my hand a try at writing. I actually had a dream and the result was my very first story. I never thought I'd be able to do that again, but then Deb had written a Plot Bunny that wouldn't leave me alone, and the only way I could get it out of my head, was to put it  down on paper. I hope I can continue to do this, as I have so many ideas swarming in my head. I found that writing can be relaxing and rewarding after seeing that I had actually put a story together. That said, I hope everyone who gives my stories a try, will like them well enough to keep reading.


I want to thank everyone who has welcomed me into the Midnight Whispers family. I have enjoyed myself immensely. ~ Cathy
