Who Is EelKat?

I’ve been online since August of 1997. I travel and post on more than 100 differant forums and message boards, most of them ProBoards sites.
Those who know me, know that I also go by the name of EelKat. Thus, I am often asked why. Why is a simple yet complex answer.

The more appropriate question should be who. Who is EelKat? EelKat is a character from an epic book that I started writing in 1980 when I was 5 years old. Miss Kitten the EelKat, as she was originally called in 1978, is a black bobcat~like creature based on the tailless cat beast from mythology, known as Tailypoe. The name EelKat, came from my love of eels and the fact that she was a bobcat.

As the EelKat story expanded she went on to become the co-owner of The Twighlight Manor an ancient stone 500+ room haunted mansion situated deep in the heart of The Twighlight Forest, owned by Sir Roderic Lincandoia Swanzen. EelKat is also part owner of White Rock former haunted mansion turned asylum for the criminally insane.

The Twighlight Manor characters were created based on UFO sightings that took place in the forest behind my house in 1978 and 1982. I was one of the witnesses to these sightings.

The combination of events that summer, resulted in the creation of a black bobcat come to earth from another galaxy, took up residence in a haunted mansion, and raised eels for pets. She was named EelKat, and she was in essence the alter ego of myself, as I wanted to be at that time in my life and I set out writing a book chronicling the history of the haunted house, which itself as it turns out was built buy aliens as a secret earth base-camp, and is not actually haunted, rather what humans calls ghosts are really aliens. In the past 27 years what started as a simple story, has since become a saga spanning over a dozen volumes following the Swanzen family from the building of the Manor in the late 1300’s up to the current time.
