Persona History:

I am Lady Kateline de Lys, a French lady from the late 1400's. One day while I was in Constantinople there was some type of time warp and Lord Dunno Jameson, a Viking, saw me and took me home with him where I learned to do so many things a Noble Lady from France would never think of doing. Thus Kitty was born.

Mundane Information:

I used to have a website where I helped those affected by hearing loss/deafness find the information they needed to answer their questions. My son is deaf and even as late at 2021 members I hadn't seen in a long time were telling me how interesting it was to watch my son go from hearing aids to a cochlear implant when he was 12 - he's now 35. If any of this interests you, you can visit the past with the Wayback Machine's archive of My Website.

I have since retired from that and now use my website to provide information on all of the things I enjoy doing, like lampworking, luceting, cross stitching, and much, much more. If any of that interests you, my site can be found here.

You can find me on Facebook and Lampwork Etc.

Special Needs:

Cannot stand in one place for long lengths of time. I can kneel in court but if I get down on my knees, I may need help back up.

In Case of Court:

Think of a cat leaning between 2 fleur de lys. Now pronounce my name: Kataline de Lys. If you need help with that imagery, check out my arms pictured above. It is not pronounced like a Cat drawing a line.
