Hello! My name is Kat Suricata (pronounced ser‧ih‧KOT‧ah), though most people online know me as Meerkat, and I’m a creative writer who resides in America with dreams of becoming a self‐sustaining published author. If you buy into personality metrics, I’m an INTP/5w4/LII; if you don’t, you’re probably smarter than I am. Congratulations.
I have a short fiction writing blog over at creative/artiﬁce, and though I’m not much for nonfiction, I did write a semi‐successful journalistic piece about America’s broken opioid prescribing guidelines. I’m also currently working as lead writer on a tabletop RPG not yet revealed to the public—which sounds impressive, but it’s the pet project of a friend of mine, so I basically gave the title to myself.
In terms of beliefs, I’m a social democrat, Spiritualist, Discordian, and libertarian (metaphysically, not economically; they co‐opted the word from us). I’m also quite ill, to the point of disability: I have avoidant personality disorder and major depressive disorder, I’m in remission for a severe and potentially‐lethal disease that affects about 1 in 500,000 people, and I have hypermobile Ehlers‐Danlos Syndrome, among other conditions.
