Born in a West Virginian hospital on the dreaded 13th, Lydia Larue is an avid animal advocate, lover of all things literary, nonimitative novelist, sassy stay-at-home mom, and slave to one Felis catus. She also loves to play video games with her husband and spend time with her family.
Our profession offers us some benefits. One important one for me is the ability to stay at home. This allows me to be a stay-at-home mom while contributing to the household, but it also means that my once fit body wasted away into nothing.
I have somewhat of an excuse. In 2006, I was diagnosis with Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), and with this condition, losing weight is difficult. Not only do I have to exercise, I have to watch the foods I eat.
Growing up, my favorite holiday was always Halloween. There is something about this season. My favorite would be snuggling on the couch with my cat and a good horror novel.
I can’t think of a better symbol for the halloween season than the Black Cat. As my religious views changed, I also viewed this season differently. During this holiday, I honor my ancestors and the pets that I had that passed on. Many were cats.
