Greetings!
« on: July 16, 2018, 07:01:47 pm »
Greetings everyone!

      My name is Matt and I live in Phoenix, AZ with my wife. I have been following KK for a number of years and I had no idea a webforum like this existed up until a few days ago.

     I'm currently reading the Camber of Culdi trilogy and it has been very riveting so far. I have read the Deryni books out of order somewhat; but I loved The Adept, and Knights Templar series.

     Katherine is a wonderful and amazing writer, I love the way she delves into these worlds and characters. I actually cried a lot when Cathan was killed at the hands of Imre. I really have a heart for Camber.

      Thank you all so very much for this place. I look forward to being as active on here as possible.
Matt

Welcome to the Castle, JediMatt1000!

As you may have intuited by my username, I'm a native of Arizona (though way up north, Page), and I lived in Phoenix for a while when I was a kid.  I miss my desert (I live in Florida now).

Glad to have you here, and I don't think anyone (certainly not any active member) here came to the books in as backwards a fashion as I did.  I picked up Deryni Magic at a large book sale, read it and was both confused and intrigued enough to start accumulating the rest of the series in used book shops.

I am most fond of the Camber and Heirs trilogies; they make me sad and angry at all the lost knowledge that is evident in comparison to Kelson's (et al) time, but they're so well written!  I love the Adept series too, and I need to refresh my memory on the Templar books.

Again, welcome!

Greetings from across the pond
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Welcome Jedi Mat1000, if you love the Deryni Universe and Katherine's writing, you're in the right place.  Glad you found us.

Welcome Matt.  Iím another resident from across the Pond. You should also know that the castle is home to a lot of cats.  Mine is a large ginger.

Welcome to the castle, JediMatt.
I am guessing you like a little Force with you're magic, and a little Trekkie with your stars, and a blue phone box to visit all the universes of science fiction.
Right there along side you.
The eleven kingdoms pulled me out of the stars to enjoy the medieval world of the Deryni.
You are welcome to join us and stay a while. All kittehs are welcome, and puppies too.

Well! Then you'll fit right in around here. =o) We welcome dogs too, naturally.
I have two cats, one great big gray tabby male named Dmitri, and one little orange tabby female named Tatiana.

I'm owned by a ginger tabby named Luke (as in Skywalker) and one brown/gray tabby named Gigi, which is short for Giraffe Giraffe Pickle Annabeth Sophronia I-Nibble-Toes, because no one in my family could agree on a name, and none of us are completely right in the head.   ;D

I'm the personal servant of a tan tabby named Carys, and my parents have three cats, PJ, a solid pewter-gray girl who should have been named Shadow for how easily she can hide in a shadow, Merlin the Manx Menace, a black-and-white tuxedo rumpy (tailless) Manx boy who is a raging jerk (LOL), and the newest addition, Layla the Holy Terror Kitten, who looks like Merlin's Mini-Me except she's a girl and she has a long tail.

Please feel free to share photos of your kitties (and any other pets you may have) in the Fur Kids gallery section, as Bynw mentioned, and if you'd like to share a photo of yourself, the Fans of KK gallery is for pics of ourselves.
