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 34. If any of this interests you, you can visit the past with the Wayback Machine's archive of my website: http://web.archive.org/web/20110106050837/http://www.listen-up.org/

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: http://www.listen-up.org/

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 arm.

Will need help up if asked to kneel.
