Nora B. Peevy currently shares her fantastical life with two wily and mischevious felines, a grumpy turtle, and an ancient bearded dragon. She lived in the southwest for seven and a half years, where she survived a tornado, a semi truck accident, and her recent divorce. She dreams of owning a pygmy goat, dancing with fire, and writing in the perfect tiny cottage with a mixed bulbs, perennials, and cut flowers garden as big as the front yard so she doesn't have to mow, a porch swing, a rose garden, some lovely trees worthy of a druid's adoration, a cozy fireplace, a big clawfoot tub, lots of room for her books, and an enchantment on her home so she never has to dust, vacuum, or do dishes and other tedious domestic chores.

“The Bible was written by man to serve his own ends. Like society. Like the church. We use such things to control one another, but what right do we have to do so?”

“I want to leave all my friends and the sunlight for a small, rainy town.”
The Harvard Lampoon

Dean Koontz
“All these girls swooning over hunky vampires, what they really want is to give away their freedom, to be controlled and told what to do and not have to think -- and never die, of course. It's sick is what it is. I don't want to be a forever-young living corpse.”
Dean Koontz, What the Night Knows

Gabriel García Márquez
“It was inevitable: the scent of bitter almonds always reminded him of the fate of unrequited love.”
