Cats or Dogs: Both! 🐕 🐈 K. Aten notes: Same!
Name of pet(s) you’re bringing on the Rocket Ship: Jaxx my Border Collie- because she’d fetch things for me, though she says she will only go if she can bring her red ball. My cats would just sleep and steal my bed.  K. Aten notes: That's sounds about right for pets. LOL

Hobbies: Photography, Geocaching, Craft Beer Pubs or Cidery hoping, Pittsburg Pirates Baseball!  K. Aten notes: You've got something to do year-round.  😀
Do you fanfic? If so, favorite ship: I’m doing good to write write anything currently. Maybe some day. 
K. Aten notes: I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

House of Refuge (Five Points Book 5) by CJ Murphy

      Rhebekka and Naomi Deklan have built a life with family and friends surrounding them and their ministry. Their message offers the marginalized an understanding of grace often withheld within the confines of mainstream religion. A documentary on Rhebekka’s former religion unearths buried incidents of abuse. Rhebekka is determined to unseal the special blue envelopes and bring justice to the victims preyed upon by those in power.
      The Deklans will make room for old and new family members at their crowded table. Faith will be the rock on which their house of refuge will be built, while walls of love and acceptance will shelter them from the wind and tides of an ever-shifting world.
