When who’s your daddy is a multiple choice question…
Paranormal Psychologist Matilda Schmidt is one client away

but in those quiet moments when expense reports had been filed and to-do items
checked off, the funny people in my head kept talking to me.

an amalgamation (vocabulary!) of all the things I love: funny stuff, art,
psychology, food, people, and paranormal critters!
Et voila! The
Case Files of Dr. Matilda Schmidt, Paranormal Psychologist were born.
