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.

Go Ask Malice: A Slayer's Diary

Go Ask Malice: A Slayer's Diary - Robert Joseph Levy, Joss Whedon Go Ask Malice: A Slayer’s Diary by Robert Joseph Levy, a Book Review by Stella Coulsonwas at the time of reading, a complete surprise. I have read many tv and movie tie in novels. Some are good, some less impressive and a few wonderful in their own right. This falls under the latter. Its remarkable how Levy is able to write so closely to the adolescent female voice. It showed incredible empathy. Also have to add that the attention to Buffyverse detail is on point too. The journey with our protagonist, Faith is quite a ride; From Faith's lovers, her 1st Watcher, her home life and events that forged her into a Warrior. Faith is full of understandable rage, strength coupled with vulnerability. As we experience the world through her eyes, we may love her, hate her, or maybe both. Either way this novel made an impact on me. I would recommend this to anyone who loves fantasy. This book is a great read, full or escapism and emotion.
