Its heart, Introspection, Exposition for writers who want to dig deep and tell their authentic stories, and for readers looking for contemplative and unconventional work.

“For a sex and erotica writer, I’m pretty vanilla.”
“The most rewarding work I’ve ever done has definitely been going back into prisons to educate and inspire incarcerated men.”
“I have often found myself being trapped in the dilemma of whether to act according to societal requirements or just do what a human needs to do.”
“In a country where very few people speak English and only 2% of the population is not made up of Japanese people, I couldn’t hide in the back anymore.”
“I sincerely believe that we are on the brink of a Renaissance in the field of independent writing and publishing.”
About Me — Warren Brown

“Whenever they repeat the story, I mentally high-five three year old me, because I intrinsically understood then that I am the curator of my own identity.”

Wait, there are more!
Among the writers of the “about me” stories published this week, we also have…
…someone who has reported on the “soft” sciences (psychology, sociology, learning), “the book mechanic,” an aspiring “feel good expert,” someone working on leading “a life that is truly [hers],” someone whose greatest passions are “travelling and studying culture, history and languages,” someone who “in an attempt to counteract the twaddle” practices and teaches “the Chinese martial arts of kung fu and tai chi,” someone “figuring out life, one idea at a time,” someone for whom “Neuroscience is a favorite subject,” someone who “can trace [her] writing back to elementary school — kindergarten to be exact,” and someone whose “first publication was in a medical education journal, talking about simulation in a cardiovascular physiology curriculum.”
Wondering who’s who? Read their stories to find out. 😉
