When people think “cat lady,” they usually call forth images of spinsters with hundreds of cats. I am more like the picture to the left – a self-sufficient goddess with a bitchin’ cat for a sidekick.

My name is Natalie DeYoung, and I am a writer/editor/lion tamer from one of the million suburbs of Los Angeles. I live there with my husband, where I enjoy writing, painting, hiking, playing the piano and singing, enrolling in Grad School for esoteric subjects, and scheming of ways to travel the globe on the cheap. Oh, and reading; lots of reading.


Me. Hi.

This blog reflects my many interests and includes fiction, some serious and some silly writing, because above all, I don’t believe in labels. What I do believe in: superior writing, creativity, spiritual wholeness, integrity.

If you want to know more about my work, please visit my website.

Partner in Crime – see, she thinks she’s “helping.” Lazy cat.

    • Wow, I don’t know you in person, but I think I love you…
      [sorry if that was too forward – I haven’t been getting much sleep lately]
      Thank you!

  1. Oh my hubby and I are still giggling….Love your ABOUT page! Found you from YeahWrite.me, as I’m a Recovery writer and author trying in vain to become a better writer. My first book written came easy to me. I was told to “Write What You Know,”…..that was about my life with gambling addiction, sex abuse survivor as a little girl, as I bought a train ticket on the Real Crazy Train that almost to me to suicide, twice, and Finally Recovery for over 7 years. I really enjoyed your #143 Writing Challenge post. I could relate! *Catherine* :-)
