My three greatest passions are the Catholic faith, reading, and Major League Baseball. Generally I am just on here to read and review, although I may venture into posting some of my own stories in the future [...] oh, and sometimes I have a penchant for reading smut (What can I say? I lurve a lemon!) (:
Ships-- I am way too old to watch iCarly, but I watch it religiously anyhow. iShip Seddie! Rock on mighty Seddie Warriors! I am also a huge fan of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games Trilogy, and I ship Peeta/Katniss!
For those who are curious, my pen name comes from the fantastic and classic books of Beverly Cleary. Klickitat Street is the street where Ramona Quimby and friends grew up! In real life, it is a famous neighborhood in Oregon. The Ramona Quimby and Henry Huggins' books basically encompass my childhood, so it was only fitting that I pay homage to them in my pen name. As a child, I fancied myself a kindred spirit with little Ramona, and still do to this day!
