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. Never lived anywhere else. Never wanted to. Got a job as a rock journalist, in the course of which I met and married a rock star (yeah, yeah, conflict of interest, who cares). 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.

Mary Susan Herczog, 31 March 1964 - 16 February 2010

My dear and much beloved friend Mary died this morning at 11:11 am California time, in her Los Angeles home, after a 12-year battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her family and friends. Several days ago, she was presented with her master's degree in theology and philosophical studies from Claremont School of Theology. She was the author of many books and the reader of many more. She leaves her husband, Steve Hochman, her mother and siblings and nieces and nephews, and many, many grieving friends.

She was the bravest person I have ever known. May her journey thrive
