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.
A Gallery of Purple Fetish Shoes
Today I am compiling a gallery of fetish shoes. One of my most popular Squidoo lenses was my fetish shoe one. It was absolutely nothing but lots of pictures of lots of very hard to find shoe styles for you to drool over. I didn't have an article planned out to write today, and I thought, why don't I take a break from writing articles and make a picture gallery instead. So, that's what this is. And yes, these images are all affiliate link banners, so clicking on an image will take you to the site which sells those particular shoes, though some links go to the homepage and others go to the page of the shoe itself. I'm not sure why that is.
A special note about wearing fetish shoes...
Fetish shoes are described as "to be worn during fetish activities", meaning they are not designed for every day wear, long term walking, and you wouldn't want to wear them to work or school.
They are designed to be worn for short periods, during "low activiy".
In other words they are made for use with CosPlay costumes, Halloween costumes, bedroom fetish dress-up, BDSM actives, clubbing, raving, proms, pole dancing, drag performances, stage plays, talent nights, etc.
If you have back, spine, hip, or knee problems, please consult with your doctor before attempting to wear fetish shoes.
Have fun and stay safe!
And for those wondering, if I wear these myself...
I used to.
I started wearing fetish shoes in the mid-1980s, after I discovered Jem & The Holograms (cartoon and dolls featuring glam rockers) and Poison (glam rock band).
For close to 30 years, I lived in thigh high hooker boots, rhinestone pixie boots, fringed go-go boots, and platform shoes of all shapes and sizes. Anything with studs, spikes, fringe, and 5" heels went on my feet, especially if it was pink, purple, or glowed in the dark, and most especially if it has glitter of any kinds on it.
I was wearing fetish shoes on an almost daily basis until November 14, 2013, when I was attacked/beaten up by an as of yet unidentified attacker who drove away in a 4-door white pick-up truck.
As a result of this attack I was paralized for 5 months, spent 18 months relearning to walk, was for a while in a wheelchair, was for months more on crutches, and am now 4 years later on a cane.
I have permanent spine, hip, and knee damage, resulting in a lame leg and poor balance. Thus I am no longer able to wear the elaborate fetish shoes that were for many years my trademark fashion item.
The driver of that truck is wanted by the FBI for attempted murder, if you know who drives the truck seen in the photographs below...
Please Call FBI Agent
@ (207) 774-9322
More Information on the attacker is HERE.
Because of my now being disabled/handicapped/crippled/with ruptured discs in my spine, a cracked hip, and a lame leg, I have had to make drastic changes to the shoes I wear.
I have found that, while uncommon and rather difficult to find, there do exist, handicapped friendly, flat-soled and heel-less fetish shoes. I have included some of those on this page.
Because handicapped friendly flat-soled fetish shoes are a small niche specialty item, within what is already a small specialty niche, it takes quiet a bit of hunting to find them.
As I am someone who wears fetish shoes and can no longer wear the "classic style" high heel fetish shoes due to my disability, I am now seeking out suppliers of disability friendly flat soled fetish shoes. I've found a few, and so, fetish shoes are back in my daily wardrobe once again.
It occurs to me that I can't be the only person who wears fetish shoes, and has a disability that limits the type/style of shoe I can wear. As such, I will be compiling a gallery of handicap friendly fetish shoes on it's own page, similar to this page you are reading right now.
These pages are part of my CosPlay Supply Series, so links to them will be added to the CosPlaer's Supply Index once the pages are built.
CosPlayer's Supply Index
I am an OtherKin Life Actor, which means I'm a CosPlayer who dresses in full CosPlay 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. I own no "normal street wear". I started doing this February 4, 1987 and have now been doing it for more then 30 years. The bulk of that time I CosPlay a transvestite Elf wizard. My mother was a professional seamstress who specialized in pageant dresses for little girls and very elaborate Halloween costumes. She taught me to sew when I was 8. I made my first ball gown at age 12. At age 16 I graduated college with a degree in Fashion Design, Dressmaking, and Theatrical Costumes. I've gone on to make some of the most insanely detailed, over the top CosPlays ever seen at many conventions.
Because of this I am frequently asked by others looking to get into CosPlaying, LARPing, SAC, OtherKin, and costume making for advice on how to make and where to buy supplies. This resulted in a series of Squidoo pages on the topic of CosPlaying and included Squidoo's #1 most visited and highest paid Squidoo Lens of all time: "The Lord Sesshomaru CosPlay" If you remember me from Squidoo, chances are high you knew me as "The Bride of Sesshomaru" rather then "EelKat" (Bride of Sesshomaru is the other online username you see me using across the internet - and was the username I had on FanFiction.net, when I wrote my long running short story series "The Bride of Sesshomaru", featuring a pink clad Lord Sesshomaru gone mad, which has since been renamed "The Adventure of Quaraun the Insane").
Squidoo went out of business in 2013, leaving most users with their hard work lost forever. Fortunately, I had backups of everything, and so all of my Squidoo pages are slowly returning to the internet here on EelKat.com. Eventually they will all be back.
Anyways, fans of the Squidoo CosPlay series, have been emailing me and asking if I'd put it back online the Gallery pages I had built for shoes, hats, lolita, goth, cyberpunk, clubbing, and costumes, which had featured links to suppliers of a lot of very hard to find, fetish items. These pages were very specifically, links to the actual products I had used to make my own CosPlays. Over time my CosPlay Squidoo series became the go-to spot for many con goings seeking to find suppliers for making their CosPlays and they were deeply saddened by the lack of this resource. Seeing the return of my other popular Squidoo pages Amphibious Aliens, Autism & Me, and The World's Most Haunted Car, my Squidoo followers have been asking is I can bring the CosPlay series back next.
Yes I can.

There were over 200 pages in this series back on Squidoo (listed above). It'll take me a bit of time to get all of them back up, as I have to go through each list and check every single link, to make sure the supplier is still active, the items are still available, and remove dead links, etc. It takes 2 or 3 days to go through each list, so it could be a while before all of the pages are back online for you, but I'll try to get up as many as I can, as quickly as possible for you guys. The pages listed on the list above will be turned into links as each page goes live.
(Sadly, as some of you may already be aware, my favorite supplier of Goth fashions has gone out of business, and as such, the Drac-In-A-Box series of Squidoo Pages will not be returning.)
And... Yes, The Lord Sesshomaru CosPlay Squidoo Lens will be returning to the internet. When it does, the link to it will be here.
