About The Author
Nikita (Kitta) Kashner is 20-something year old girl who lives in Perth, Western Australia. She was born in Subiaco on August 2nd, 1984. Her heritage is Polish, Scottish and English. When she was born she had a full head of jet black hair and spent her first few years being obsessed with her hands. That was until she noticed her feet, whole new world there.
Kitta a self confessed high heel worshipper and a massive Doctor Who fan girl (lovingly naming her network dive Tardis and including 'pool' and 'library' directories) who experiences withdrawal symptoms when being without her iPod for more than five minutes. Kitta is lactose intolerant and enjoys cooking and using the word 'nomtastic' to describe edible objects. Her favourite colours are black (#000000) and red (#FF0000) and she is a proud geek that would marry her Xbox 360 if it was legal to do so. She is an avid Zombicinephile that suffers from Multiplebrowsertabitis. She also likes making up new words. Kitta is currently working as a web master (like Spiderman) and she also volunteers as a first aider at various events. In her spare time she enjoys making jewellery and photography. Previously she worked as fashion model and web designer and she dreams of traveling the world one day.

He currently hunts down spam comments and enjoys long walks on cyber beaches.
