About Me

Writer, Kate Flood in Rome, Ialy

Writer, Kate Flood in Rome, Italy

I’ve been through more in my life so far then most ever go through their entire life ~ or so someone told me once. ‘ Too much to write in my bio ~  Let’s just say surviving 6 car accidents, being held at gunpoint at 15 yrs over a bridge are enough to make me question “Why me?” and to figure out how to stop it all Guess What? I did (for today) and so can you! My stories are an extreme example of you really are what you think, breathe and eat and yes, everything does happen for a reason!

Just the Stats: Born Canadian & raised Catholic (now Universal), one of fraternal twins born 3 months premature (1 pound, couple ounces if you can believe it!), raised outside of Canada’s capital, Ottawa. Born country, love city. Hardworking father and free-spirited Mom was an artist and worked along side Pierre Trudeau in the House of Commons. Lived in Kingston for Uni, Vancouver for a bit and Toronto the last 11 years off and on.

Ultimate Time: Mountain seaside convertible fall drive through winding tree-lined roads, live fire by he water, cozy seating full of good company, enlightening conversation, good cheer, live music, gourmet eats & red wine! Bonus: Dancing.
All the more better: If I started the day off running and ended still in a mountain, tree & warrior pose. Shavasana to close (or nap time). Namaste.

Music: I like most music. Fave’s include – Classic rock: U2, Police, Dave Mathews Band, Van Morrison, Stones, Zepplin  • Canadians: Tragically Hip, Blue Rodeo, Justin Rutledge • Jazz/Fusion: Harry Connick Jr., Michael Buble, Miles Davis, Sinatra, Norah Jones.  • Complete Albums: Paul Simon (Rythem of the Saints), Ennio Moriccone (The Mission Soundtrack), Bob Marley (Greatest Hits) • Sade (Greatest Hits)  • Ambient Groove Music: Jairamji • Shakti Rythems • Alltime Fave songs: In God’s Country, U2 • Moondance, Van Morrsion  • Peacefrog, Doors • Walking on Sunshine, Katrina and the Waves • She Sells Sanctuary, Cult •  In the Air Tonight, Phil Collins • Every Kind of People, Robert Palmer • Tiny Dancer, Elton John • Dancing Queen, ABBA • Ava Maria • At Last, Etta James • How soon is Now, Smiths
Songs to Drive Stick to: Dweller on the Threshold, Van Morrison • Born to Be Wild, Steppenwolf • Streets Have No Name, U2
