Meet the author

29 May

I’ve recently found out one of my online friends is an author.

First time I met her was when I read one of the many Dear Roger letters. Those are letters she writes to her dead uncle telling him about her life. I like the idea because then you can actually picture someone when you’re writing something. So I read some of her letters but since I saw them on tumblr and it was always hard to find anything there (too many updates all the time) I kind of lost track of her.

Time passed and I found her on twitter through a common friend and we started talking. I always love when we have a chance to chat over there. Hilarious conversations. She’s an odd one, which is one of the reasons why I always love talking to her.

And just a few days ago I found out she’s an author. I finally found her blog A Modern Calamity and saw the video she made about herself and her books. She published two books already: Drifts and The Face In The Rear View Mirror. First I saw they were kindle editions and since I’m not a fan of them (I like holding the book in my hands), I started searching and found paperbacks. When you search for them on Amazon you see the kindle ones first, and it’s not that easy to find the paperbacks. Shut up, it’s not! But I found them. And bought them (finally!). And now I can’t wait to read them.

Since I can’t tell you anything about the books (since I haven’t read them yet) I’ll leave you with a video of the author talking them. And about herself and where she finds inspiration for her writing. Watch the video and then go buy a copy of her books.

P.S.: If you’re still not convinced, you can go on Amazon and can click on the book to take a look inside. Or read the reviews from people who actually read them.

Update: You can check her author’s page on Facebook.

    I’ve read Drifts and you’ll love it. It really delves into how humans can endure and survive anything with someone to care about.
