The Austen Girl – Beautiful. Brilliant. Crazy.

When I asked my husband to describe me in three words… That was his response. Beautiful. Brilliant. Crazy.

They are the […]

I am currently sitting on my hospital bed, listening to the sounds of my neighbour have a dangerously heated argument. I could not tell you who she is arguing with. I have not seen them. To me, they are not real. I can only begin to imagine how completely frightening it would be, for this monster inside my […]
