Name:desperance
Birthdate:Jan 4
My name is Chaz Brenchley and I'm a writer - novels and short stories, mostly (and a recovering poet, in remission twenty years now, hurrah!) - with a track record in crime, horror and fantasy. Largely. I like it down the dirty end of genre fiction. And I cook, to an absurdly serious degree; and I am foolishly sentimental about cats. I live with Barry, who is a cat, and not at all sentimental about me; also with Mac, who is another cat, and sentimental about both of us if sentiment can be conveyed with teeth & claws. I bleed for them both. Oh, and I have a famous teddy bear called Softly.
