Thatcher lives and works in Northern California with his wife, Susan, and two cats. When he's not writing, he likes to swim laps and restore old cars. The Volvo 123GT to the right is his daily driver. For those of you interested in cars, the Volvo has a B20, 4-cylinder engine with a mild racing cam and twin SU type carbuetors. The front was lowered using progressive springs. The suspension was upgraded using pan-hardened polyurethane bushings, Bilstein shocks on the front, Koni adjustable shocks on the back, and IPD sway bars on both axles. The end result is a fast little rally car that's very light on the rear end - fun for drifting around corners. Woo-Hoo!
Likes: Good scotch, good wine, good books (purely subjective), the ocean, animals (I'm a sucker for anything on four legs), classic cars, Korean dramas (don't ask), food of any kind, and my wife (because she's so fine...)
Dislikes: Animal abusers (abusers of any kind), emails from Nigeria, robo-calls, cat hairs in my coffee, cat toys in my coffee, cats in my coffee
