“I know I was writing stories when I was five. I don't know what I did before that. Just loafed, I suppose.” (PG Wodehouse)

My first long story was a never-ending adventure of a girl and her dog who time traveled by hitting their heads on various objects. In grade 7 I turned to writing salacious novels about my friends which included a kidnapping whenever I hid the midpoint slump. I’m still friends with the first girl I wrote one of said salacious novels with.

At time of publication I was a receptionist living in an old apartment in Montreal, Canada with a couple cats and a rotating cast of gentlemen callers.

Joseph Campbell
The Hero Path

We have not even to risk the adventure alone
for the heroes of all time have gone before us.
The labyrinth is thoroughly known ...
we have only to follow the thread of the hero path.
And where we had thought to find an abomination
we shall find a God.

And where we had thought to slay another
we shall slay ourselves.
Where we had thought to travel outwards
we shall come to the center of our own existence.
And where we had thought to be alone
we shall be with all the world.”
Joseph Campbell

John Mortimer
“He is a pale, long faced, unsmiling fellow who probably lives on a diet of organic bran and carrot juice. He heard Ballard open the proceedings against La Maison with a pained expression, and looked at me over his half-glasses as though I were a saucepan that hadn't been washed up properly.”
John Mortimer, Rumpole à la Carte

“Soapy Sam looked as though he had just sat down on a favourite armchair which had gone missing.”

Oh no! lol I didn't even realize it. Though I just checked my computer dictionary (Oxford American) and apparently it IS a real word!

Alex S I am very much amused that you used the word unputdownable in a review.
