Introduction We like to say that we were born in Vancouver and grew up in bohemia, where we still reside-- from babyhood onward we've been hobnobbing with artists and hoboes, lovers and fighters, and exiles from non-existent places. People from all walks of life constitute our wonderful friends and family. Today Mrs Brown makes her home in London, England with her husband. Tami Thirlwell-Nicol, who like Mrs Brown holds a special diploma in punk studies, lives in Vancouver with her husband. Alexandra Oliver, who has a special certificate in Gothic sensibilities, inhabits a satellite Toronto home with her heir and her consort.
