I was, wait, sorry, that's "David Copperfield". Anyway, I was born in Brooklyn, grew up on Long Island, went to school in upstate NY and came straight back to Manhattan to live.

Became a priestess in a Celtic Pagan tradition, and (based on sheer longevity) one of the most senior Witches around. Began writing my Keltiad series. Wrote a memoir of my time with my beloved consort (Strange Days: My Life With and Without Jim Morrison). See Favorite Books below for a big announcement...The Rennie Stride Mysteries.

A Modest Betrothal

A lovely day in the neighborhood, and it was just as lovely 36 years ago today when Jim proposed to me in Central Park, ring, knee and all.

White blossoms and new green leaves on the trees in the park, lilacs and peonies in vases at home, Jefferson Airplane at the Fillmore East and roast duck at three in the morning. What a day.

And also it is the 50th birthday of MDF Michael Rosenthal, he of the quick wit and ready quip and Buddha-like calm, a captain of the Grammar Patrol with medals for valor in the field. Cinco de Michael! Hola!
