Stella Coulson - Author of Whitby After Dark Volume 1. I am a green eyed brunette (sometimes red) who loves writing both stories and poetry. Currently working on a fantasy/paranormal novel. I've been told on more than one occasion that I am weird (thank you very much) which I don't mind being, now that I'm grown up. I've given up long ago what people think of me. I am a big reader - I adore books, painting, writing, poetry and meditation. I am a contradiction when it comes to science vrs spirituality. I have in the past been spiritual which in principle doesn't adhere to Science, but at the same time I'm a keen Darwinist and a believer in Evolution. I adore Steampunk and I prefer Tesla to Edison. If eternal life ever was possible and came into fruition, I'd spend it learning all I could and watching the world evolve, technology expand and possibly seeing mankind colonize on other worlds. I would see as much of the world as I could and learn new languages, skills and abilities. Would only accept such a gift though if I could share it with someone - For I'd rather live a short life having loved than a eternity without it. My Philosophy... I believe happiness depend on those we help and who we bring into our lives, than material superficial gain (for that is fleeting). I adore animals, particularly cats and dogs. To learn from others to move forward and (try lol) not wallow in self indulgent pity. I aspire to be a better person and the friends I have help me be who I am each and every day. I adore many types of music from industrial, metal, rock, blues, orchestral to musicals. Some of my favorite musicals being Phantom of the Opera and Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

Bedroom Library

For a writer, a bedroom is a sanctuary, a haven, a place to get away from the hustle and busy of the mundane world and write. I made an off the cuff remark on my facebook saying "I'd love to just have a bed put in the middle of a Library and have that be my bedroom". I said it at first jokingly, but considering it at a closer angle, I now rather adore this idea.
My bedroom in its present incarnation pretty close to that concept, considering how many books are in this room. The room needs more shelves to give it that truly library feel.
I've filled all four of my bookshelves to the brim and have had to put the rest pilled up by walls, under bed, in closet etc. Presently the room is two sides of walk in closet spaces, floor to ceiling bookshelf,large window taking up another and a decent sized bed taking up the other. This all stores my vintage clothes, wardrobe, makeup, cat toys, graphic novels. I work from my laptop, so that is pretty much my office, even though there is an actual one downstairs.
The idea of a bedroom library appeals since my happy place is a Library, so what could be more fitting!
