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.
