This website started in 1996 and is updated, edited, and added to daily. (NOTE do keep in mind since the April 10, 2015 murder of my children, this site is no longer updated daily, and very few new writing articles are added any more - since 2015 updates have been about weekly and usually are about the continued ongoing investigation into the murder of my family.) 

As of 2021 it has more than 10,000 pages. However, only around 2,000 pages are indexed by search engines (robot blockers and/or passwords, prevent the rest from being findable by Google/Bing/Yahoo/etc.). Around 8,000 pages can only be accessed by clicking on direct links to them. The links are found on other pages on this site. Confusing? Perhaps. But whenever one of those difficult to find 8,000 pages gets traffic, I know that you are VERY dedicated in reading what I wrote or doing some stalker level digging to reach those search engine inaccessible pages and I'd rather not waste my time writing stuff for uninterested parties, plus it's fascinating to see how deep some people are willing dig to find every last word I wrote.

I published my first novel in 1978. Since then I have published 138 novels, 30 non-fiction books, 2,000+ short stories, a dozen plays, a few comic book scripts for Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck comics, a few dozen novellas, and 10,000+ non-fiction articles.

I am asexual and famous for 4 decades of writing 100% sexless stories, laced in extreme blood-gore-and-violence. But in spite of that, in recent years, most people classify me as an Erotica author. I don't know why, as I've never written Erotica or even any sex scenes, and as I am a nun, raised as such from the age of 3, I wouldn't even know how to write sex or Erotica. If you came here looking for sex, BDSM, Erotica, or Dominatrix's, please return to whomever sent you and tell them to burn in Hell where their immoral ass belongs. Also, do tell me their name so I can put a curse on them, so they will never enjoy sex ever again, to punish them for spreading lies about me and connecting my name to anything related to sex at all. I find sex vile and despicable and want no part of your perverse degradation near me.

All of my fiction works are about Alien Elf Wizards who live in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. All of my non-fiction works are about the history of Maine, it's Gypsy Clans, and most especially Old Orchard Beach the town which was settled and founded by my family.

Most of these pages answer reader questions on the worldbuilding, character creating, plotting, writing, editing, and publishing process of my work. 

Others are on the history of my people, The Gypsies of Maine, our culture, our lifestyle, our cars, and our religion.

The rest of the pages are daily updates of the terrorist attacks by Maine's White Supremacists on my non-white family, including updates of the FBI investigation of the April 10, 2015 murder of my children.




IMPORTANT UPDATE:

Due to the murder of my family and the resulting court cases, police investigations, and FBI investigations, I no longer have time to daily update this website.

Likewise ALL novel, short story, and article writing projects are on hiatus.

All book releases, book signings, workshops, and convention appearances for 2015 (and unknown amount of time after) are on hold while the murder investigation of my family is ongoing.

Writing advice for the worldbuilding, character creation, and other writing how to articles are on hold.

From now on, the bulk of updates here will be about the investigation into the murder of my family.

No, NOT just THIS author website, not JUST the EelKat pename, not just self published books: ALL 15 (fifteen) of my penames are on hiatus, that includes traditional published books as well, newspaper reporting jobs, editing jobs, my work for Harlequin Romance Novels, my work for Disney... EVERYTHING is on hiatus. Every publishing house I work for, every series I write, every penname I write under: they are ALL on hiatus, ALL projects.

There is NOTHING being published under ANY penname, not for ANY series, not for ANY publisher, from 2015 onward. EVERYTHING is on hold due to the murder of my family. I do not know when or even if, any of the projects will be restarted or finished.

Yes, BOTH the magazines I owned are indefinitely shut down because of this as well, with no plans for either magazine to return. The publishing house I own is also closed to submissions from now on, we will no longer be publishing anything. It is unlikely we will reopen the publishing house either.

All book signing tours, workshops, letures, PAX events, ComicCon events, carnival/festival/state fair/car show events are also canceled. I will not be attending ANY of them. If a venue still has my name listed as a guest/speaker/etc it is because they've not yet removed it. I WILL NOT be there, no matter where it is! 

EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE, IS CANCELED!

The ONLY thing continuing from this point on, is THIS website, where I'll post updates on the murder investigation, hopefully every week, but, you know how it is when 10 members of your family are beheaded, it's kind of difficult to have a schedule for anything anymore.

April 10, 2015 my 12 children were kidnapped,
from 146 Portland Ave. Old Orchard Beach, Maine.

May 15, 2015, ten of their heads were nailed to my door.

Do you have information?

FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the 
Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the case.

If you have information about the April 10, 2015 murder of my family 
or any of the attacks on our home and relatives, give it to him not me.
He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322 









Character motivation for becoming a drug dealer?
| EelKat On Writing A Villain |
EelKat's Guide To Character Creation



>>I have a character that is a rich bored housewife type and her arc is to become a drug kingpin eventually but I need some kind of connection or reason she would suddenly get into drugs

I've a friend who got into drugs, and his reason, was simply that his friends were doing it and bragged to him how fun it was.... could be as simple as that for your character. If she's wealthy she can clearly afford to be dealing with high end drugs, and if she's bored, perhaps she's just looking for something to liven up her life. Maybe one of her friends, pulled her aside one day and said: "Hey, look what I got!" showed her some drgs and said "This stuff is amazing, you gotta try it!".

>>The character is already independently wealthy, so this would be more about having something to do with her time and energy.

Maybe she's always been the "perfect wife" type. Strict morals, church on Sunday, long skirts, high neck collars... raised that way, married a husband who was like her dad, same strict super Christian, no sin in my house, attitude.... but maybe, deep down inside she hates it... she wanted to be a wild teen, wanted to dye her hair and get a tattoo, but never did because she was too bust trying to be perfect... now years of frustration, bottled up inside her, she can't take it anymore, watching her friends, other housewives, going out for nights on the town, while she stays at home... maybe she's just fed up with trying to be perfect to please daddy, to please hubby, and drugs is her rebeling point.... it's small so she can sneak it in unnoticed. Can hide it from her super strict hubby.

>>Motive is maybe not the right word. I have motive. What I mean is that I need the catalyst that makes her go from not selling drugs to selling drugs. Where does she get them? In Breaking Bad Walt runs into his old student Jesse Pinkman. What I'm looking for is the Jesse Pinkman.

Perhaps what you want is pure raw opium, or pure raw LSD... is she a gardener? Chances are high she has BOTH growing in her garden ... most every garden in America grows both. In their raw form, neither is illegal in America.

Opium is very simple Poppy flowers.

Poppy seeds are sold at every neighbour grocery. Used in cooking cakes and breads, a topping on pasta. But eat a cup of them straight from the package and see how fast you get arrested for driving under the influence.

Almost every granny in the country grows poppy flowers in her front yard.

While you can get some opium from the seeds, the stuff that drug dealers work with is the sap/milk from pods/stems. Just take a razor, make a few slice marks in the pod, wait 3 or 4 hours, then collect the hard white "tears" that have formed on the sides. These tears are pure unprocessed opium - and are the primary ingredient needed to make heroin. Each of these tiny pinhead size white resin drops well sell for a few hundred dollars a piece.

Next, carefully cut the stems, tie them in bunches, hang them upside down in a dry room for about 3 or 4 weeks. Once dry, cut the stems up into 2 to 3 inch pieces. This is Opium Tea. Not worth as much money wise as Opium Tears are, but still a very high priced drug. Classy Rich women often prefer Opium Tea to other drugs, because they can drop a couple of these stem pieces into their regular morning tea, and no one is the wiser. They appear to still be drinking tea, and no one knows they've steeped it with opium.

As your character is a wealthy housewife, looking to sell drugs, Opium Tea is what I would think would be her go to drug to sell.

The average person doesn't know how opium is made, so anyone seeing her in her garden, slicing poppy pods will just think she is pruning her flowers, anyone who sees her drying flowers on her front porch, well just think she's drying herbs, any one who sees her making tea, well just thing is regular green tea.

The tea she would sell to the ladies in her social circle, the tears she would sell to heroine makers who will use it to make heroin.

As for LSD. Most people are familiar only with the man made synthetic stuff that was invented in the 1960s, however, it's natural form, has been used by shaman and holy men for getting visions, for thousands of years. Anyplace where pine trees grow has LSD growing as well. A bit more difficult to come by, because you have to wait for it to rain. After a good rainstorm, head to the forest, look around the bottom of pine trees for red mushrooms with white spots. Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly amanita. Be careful. It's deadly. Used wrong, you'll be dead within 15 minutes. They become edible at a certain stage and are deadly toxic at other stages of growth. She'll have to learn how to tell the difference. A very dangerous drug to make, if LSD is made wrong it can put a person in a coma, make them a brain dead vegetable, or outright kill them. She'd really have to know the art of mushroom hunting and mushroom processing REALLY well if she wanted to go the old school LSD made from mushrooms road.

However... it's possibly, if she's wealthy, that she has a personal chef. Perhaps, her personal chef is a mushroom corsair, and, was in the 1970s an LSD addict hippie. Maybe he tells her this and she becomes fascinated by this. Perhaps, she takes her on a mushroom hunting excursion one day, and he tells her how years ago he used to make drugs from mushrooms... perhaps she is turned on by this, and offers to pay him lots of money if he makes some of these mushroom drugs for her and her group of socialites.

>>I need some kind of catalyst that makes her decide to start selling.

>>And the drug plot actually won't even be the main plot in my story. And it's actually a soap opera for a youtube series, so "done before" is ok, to a degree.

Have you watched any big daytime TV soaps? People get into drugs on those all the time. And it's almost always some cheesy rebel reason, like "I caught him in bed with her, so I'm going to hire a guy to sell drugs to her husband, ruin his 3 years clean record". In the big daytime soaps BOREDOM is ALWAYS a primary catalyst for EVERYTHING. Every episode of Days of Our Lives and Young and the Restless you'll always see a character who is very wealthy, happily married, and very bored and will suddenly, for no reason at all go: "I'm bored, I think, tonight I'll...(insert some crazy rebellious out of character thing to do here)."

So if you are writing for a soap opera, I would think, boredom would be an incredibly believe reason for her to suddenly become a drug dealer, just because that is the very nature of soap opera logic and is what soap opera fans expect to see.

Perhaps in your case it could be something like, her and a couple of friends are laughing over drinks, and she says: "I'm bored with life, I need to do something to spice things up." and one of her friends laughs and jokily says: "Well, you could always sell drugs." No really meaning it. But then the next day, she starts thinking: "Hey, you know what, selling drugs WOULD spice up my life." Perhaps she could daydream about all the cool exiting celebrities she'll meet, not realizing the type of gangster thug people she'll end up dealing with. Maybe she's always been sheltered and so doesn't have a realistic knowledge of what drug life is, so she pumps it up in her mind as something glamourous, and gets into selling drugs hoping to meet some big name rock star that she's a fan of who she knows uses drugs? Thus has this very unrealistic expectation of what she's getting into.

I think that's probably the way I'd go if I was doing something like that in my story.

(I frequently write drug addicts and drug dealers, and my current main character is an opium and LSD addict, that why my mind went in that direction.)

In any case, hopefully something here helps you out. Good luck with your YouTube show!
