When not hunched like a Morlock over her writing desk, Tammy runs and bikes silly miles in the playground of Southern California and spends an inappropriate amount of time watching Henry Rollins videos on YouTube.

“Love is the only prayer I know.”
Marion Zimmer Bradley, The Mists of Avalon

“Look, the Devil has asked me. We’re very old acquaintances, he and I, and I couldn’t turn him down. My estate is enormous, so he asked me for a little space, since hell has become totally overpopulated and there’s no room left whatsoever. He doesn’t have any choice in the matter Himself. Nowadays, everyone wants to go to hell, and the Devil, being as decent as he is, can’t turn anyone down. You understand, don’t you? There’s nobody left in Heaven. Heaven has gone bankrupt,”.”
Alexandar Tomov, Beyond the Absurd
