Hi there. Hello.
And an enthusiastic “Welcome” to my site of writings that I feel weirdly compelled to share with YOU, Dear Internet Reader.
Please note that this is NOT amazon, but if you stumbled here accidentally due to a web browser spelling error, please feel free to stay a while! I will not sell you anything, I promise – until I publish a book, that is. 🙂
This site began in 2015 as “We are Starlings” – a collection of personal essays, short stories, notes and poems to my self and maybe to you; ultimately, a giant ever-growing love letter to existence.
The former site name “We are Starlings” was inspired by a Carl Sagan quote: “we are made of star stuff.” A concept that, scientifically speaking, infers that we are literally the children of the stars; the darlings of the stars.
Much of my writing explores this philosophical connection to a vast, effervescent feeling that we are the children of the stars. The tangible MAGIC of the universe around us that sparkles and ignites when we want it to, and sometimes when when we don’t. No matter what I’m writing or working on, this ‘starlings’ concept always seems to bubble out of me, one way or another.
Apart from musing about the divine absurdities of life, I am working on two novels, both fantasy sci-fi, and learning about novel writing in the process. Also nerding out on science-y stuff.
Hope you enjoy!
With Love, Amie
