About Me

Hello! Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the web. My name is Michelle, though I’m better known on social media as FIT Kitty Mama.

For a little over 3 years I wrote a weight-loss/lifestyle blog. While I enjoy blogging, I fell out of love with the topics and struggled to stay engaged when all I really wanted to talk about was books. So as of April 2016, I blog about books.

I have always been a reader. I started reading young and devoured books, from Golden Books to the Little House series to Charlotte’s Web. As I grew older the topics changed to Sweet Valley High, then Harlequin and Silhouette romances. Now I read a wide variety of books including Romantic Suspense, Best Sellers, Young Adult, Light Erotica, Chick Lit, Memoirs and other assorted Non-Fiction topics like writing and nutrition.

My love of books is exceeded only by my love of cats. While my oldest kitty, Disney, crossed the rainbow bridge in January 2016, I still share my life with Cheshire, my 5 year-old fur monster. I am also auntie to my brother’s three boys, affectionately referred to as my neph-cats- Yo-Yo, Little Demon and Cuz-It (short for Cousin It).

My love of reading began in Southern California where it grew and matured, it then moved to Seattle, Washington where it grew to encompass new genres before arriving in a small town in the middle of Western Oregon and gave rise to a blog about books. I then moved back to Washington, just north of Seattle.

In addition to books and cats, I also love anything Disney related, the Food Network, long walks, movies, music, being near the water, and dreaming about travel. I am a 40-something fangirl for Harry Potter who used to sell stuffed animals for a living (and yes, this may be why I’m still single). But I enjoy my life and love getting lost in a good book over just about anything else in life.
