Top 5 Childhood Authors

Almost every day after school, I was at the library doing homework but more precisely picking out my next book to read. It all started with the Bob Books, then came Little Bear, Henry and Mudge, Frog and Toad, No Fighting, No Biting! and many others I cannot begin to list.

The Pistachio Is Lucifer’s Seed

  Food, it's one of the basic needs and functions that we're built for in this life; to consume, to replenish.

I wrote a research paper on spatiality, taught by Dr. Christian Beck, and his course gave much needed insight into the interactions and awareness of one's place in a space and space in a place. With that said, I'd like to add to the conversation regarding those in the humanities. Writers give birth to … Continue reading The Write Space and Where To Find It
