  • Reading: paper towns by john green
  • Watching: the price is right
Last night I had a dream that I was part of the resistance (which included my friends from school and TJ Miller) in a world where giant robot overlords had enslaved the human race.  I'm thinking about turning it into a story, but I don't want it to be too much like Terminator, Transformers or Mistborn.  

I'm home for the summer and I start work next Monday.  Luckily I was able to get a job with my town's public works department this summer, but they still haven't told me exactly what I'm doing yet.  Chances are I'm working in one of the parks, or I get to drive the water truck around and water all of the hanging baskets in town.  We will find out.

I'd like to write more this summer.  I know I've said that before, but I really mean it!  I'm working on a project with The Dryden Experiment again, but if the free time allows it, I'd like to finish some of the unfinished stuff I have on my desktop.  Chances are I won't be finishing an original novel anytime soon, but who knows what will happen.

I'm also hunting for new apartments in Toronto from four hours away...which is harder than I thought it would be.  At the end of April my old landlord kicked me out a day early which created the hottest of messes, so I'm done with student housing and trying to find something in a building close to school.  The good news is that my brother is going to the same school as me in September, so I don't have to have any weird and dirty 18 year old roommates anymore...and I can just tell him to clean up instead of taking the passive write-your-complaints-on-the-white-board approach.

That is all.  What's new with you guys?  I noticed that the usual peeps aren't around here as much anymore.  Why are you all so busy?  Is Deviantart still as big as it used to be?  I feel so out of the loop here.

Is that the end of the world, or are you just happy to see me?

I'm a 22 year old civil engineering student puttering around somewhere in Canada. I just finished my BA in Geography and that's probably the direction I'm headed in, but there's something I'd rather be doing. I love writing about dark, gritty things, and you would never guess it from seeing me in person. I've written 15 novels and also have 2 novellas to my name. My favorite topics to tackle are: the apocalypse, space travel and military fiction. I got the gift of writing and love of the strange and obscure from my dad's dad; born in 1911 Russia and who believed aliens walked the Earth.

I also (used to) blog about music at: fromalt2zen.blogspot.com/ It's more of a casual hobby, and practice for writing for Rolling Stone.

But who am I outside of writing? When I'm not in line at Tim Hortons, trying new nail polish shades or buying 5 books at a time at Value Village, I'm just a somewhat-normal girl navigating through my twenties. I'm Scottish, Irish and British on my mom's side, and Russian Mennonite on my dad's side. Fate made me the oldest of 3; I've got a younger sister and brother. I need 4 things to function on a daily basis: coffee (one sugar with soy milk), The Simpsons, an hour to myself to read a book (a good YA or Stephen King), and a playlist that never ends.

My first book, published with The Dryden Experiment with illustrations by Miyori999 can be found here, and is also available on Amazon Canada
