The Short of It:

Lover of quiet moments, cats, childhood memories and dirt. Expert at fairy tales, decent at drawing, and horrible at anything contrived. I won’t ever be sad unless you make me, and I can cook anything you challenge me with. I need words. I have love. I want life. I am happiness.

Laugh often. We’re all nerds anyway…

The Long of It:

Hi, thanks for taking the time to get to know me. Writing has become a sort of escape for me, something I always knew I had the talent for but could never give myself the personal strength to share it with others. I live in Washington State where I earned my Degree in Fine Arts and Graphic Design from Washington State University.

GO COUGS!

The strange happenstance of my name: Abra, much like abracadabra… I know I know, I’ve heard it all my life. Being a kid with that name is odd, let me tell you. The cool thing is that now I’m a writer, and I like magic… When I see my name on my book covers I always feel like I was meant for this. Thank You Steinbeck and “East of Eden!”

The most valuable thing I ever did was Study Abroad in Australia where I attended one of the countries top art academies. I earned my first “B” in an art class there, but a little challenge is good–I thrive on that.  Not to say I never got a C, that came with Geology.

My independant nature has driven my abitions for years, and along with my husband, we have devoted our lives to finding our special talent that we will share with the world.

I love to travel, and have extensively. There is nothing more amazing than to see the world, and understand how other people live. Not to mention learning that Swiss chocolate is way better fresh from the factory, it’s really funny Burger King is called Hungry Jacks in Australia, beer does taste better in Germany, and sometimes there really are random people playing the bagpipes in a field in Scotland.

Please enjoy all my posts, I tend to question the world around me in a sometimes deep and meaningful manner–which means funny.  I always feel I need the answers, but that’s the fun of life.

All my love,

AE

    I love reading about other peoples blogs that are about pursing their dreams, it makes me hopeful and excited for you : )

    h! i’m a sucker for fantasy books especially when love and romance are in it. And yeah, I was so into Harry Potter and Edward and Bella. I’m a writer in my own dreams too. And I just can’t wait to read your series as soon as it hits Asia. I just hope that I don’t end up obsessed in the world you created. Though after a day’s work, I would sulk in a world outside reality for serenity. Good luck! 😀

      ha ha, yeah, I know what you mean!I love the escape of a new world. I DID actually like twilight as a whole, dispite some of my posts 😉 Books like that become your life, and everything you think of changes for weeks on end. Thats what I love about magic and fiction, it’s whatever you want it to be. There is an e-book available for Feather, it’s in english, but yours is flawless, so if you like, you can visit either lulu.com, or mobipocket. Mobi is friendly with many languages, and most countries… If not, I’m always willing to help out, and would be happy to help get the book sent to Asia as soon as it comes out… Jan. 31st.

    Thanks for the info regarding lulu.com and mobipocket. i don’t have problems with the book in English. Books from US usually get to Asia at least 6 months after its launching. Like the Twilight saga, it was all over US by 2007 but it only hit the bookstores here mid-2008. I just the read the sample chapter of feather and I’ll have my cousin buy me a copy on Jan. 31. More power. 😀

    Hi Abby! It’s Ken’s Mom! Although I have never cared for fantasy, I borrowed Amber’s copy (It was the first edition, unedited) of “Feather” and simply devoured it. Even if I am still not sold on fantasy as my “cup of tea”, I will continue to gobble up your fascinating series!! Love, Leslie

    I was never a big reader at all. I had read the twilight saga and loved it and was searching for a book after all that…I had picked up four books in total after those and did not get through any of them. When I saw Feather online I ordered it and did not put in down until the last page. Thank you so much for the wonderful book. I am waiting on Guardian to get here. I did not think that I would find another series that I loved but I am so glad that I did. Thank you so much again!

    Hey there, I found your story to be very interesting, I’d love to do an interview with you for my site http://www.pieces-zine.com. It’d be featured on the front page on the news section. After the interview I’d love it if you linked back to the site as well 🙂

    Thanks,
    Jasmine

    Hi there 🙂 Just discovered your wonderful blog and thought I might stop by to tell you how much I’m enjoying it!

    Hey! i was wondering if maybe you were thinking about writing anymore of the Feather book series or maybe writing them threw a different point of view. I can truly say that i loved them. I actually read them in about 3 days and i couldn’t get enough. I cried when Elly lost her love. I cried when she died. And i laughed at the remarks that Sam made. I think that it would be really cool if you could maybe continue the book series maybe threw Elly’s grandchild or something. Im pretty sure your on my 10 best author. I used to really be into the twilight series but now i think this one totally tops it! Thank you so much for writing and by the way I live in WA too and i enjoy WSU too 😀

      Thanks, Aleshia! So you’re a Washintonian, too! I keep thinking about continueing something from Feather and it would be the daughter, Sam, but I haven’t yet sat down to really think about it 🙂 I get a lot of requests, and you would think that means that I should, lol. I appreciate all the wonderful comments you made, makes me feel good (especially when the WSU football team is so bad and I could use a pick-me-up!) I’ll let you know if I write more int he Feather Series, I just might have to now!

      Abra
