A little before I became the proud owner of a big red armchair, discovered like a dinky old TARDIS in the back room of a long forgotten op shop, I bought a paperback copy of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Grey with one of those cheap little bookmarks that come free with every purchase.
On the back were a few words by an author who I’ve since expediently forgotten:
“Whenever I get a little money I buy books … if there is any left over, I buy food and clothes.”
As a pathologically lazy bookworm who drinks tea by the bucket, these were words from a higher power. The challenge was convincing the rest of the world that I wasn’t full-frontal wack-a-doodle.
Not long after that I teamed up with someone who knew what it was all about.
As bright and manic as the Untempered Schism and just nerdy enough to know how to spell “Schism”, I teamed up with The Cat to trade books, be nerdy and solve crimes.
We made a pretty good superhero duo, protecting the universe in space and time and making a mean brew while we’re at it.
A couple of years on and we had the completely mental idea to start a blog about our adventures (both being well aware of how cool blogs were around 10 years ago).
Now, after a swag-load of mostly fictitious escapades and more crimes committed than solved, we want to share all our creativity with you lovely people before we both sell-out and get real jobs.
This is us, fully equipped and batteries included …
All the very best, from
Curiosity and The Cat
