Anyway, here goes nothing...
Hi, my name is Gaia and I am a mess ^_^
While earlier in life I tried to correct this and felt miserable, I finally came to embrace my natural state of entropy and discovered happiness.
I am interested in people, in how we all feel like we’re wrong when we’re in fact beautiful universes. I’m interested in meaning, depth, thoughts, and in how the heck some of us get to be happy. I believe it’s not luck, happiness is a lot of work! Because I managed in spite of some pretty vertiginous ups and downs I made it a mission to share my story and became a writer.
I LOVE books. I am an avid reader and writer. My first novel, An Italian Adventure will be officially released on November 1st, but (hush hush!) the paperback and audiobook are already available on Amazon and it’s already a best-seller in Italian lit! YAY! The book is in English, but takes place in Italy. If you love Italy, books, and insightful humor this book is for you.
I am also a professor of Biology and a world traveler. I lived in two countries and backpacked all over the globe.
I love kitties, puppies, and rock climbing.
Among my favorite books are Harry Potter (of course!), I’ll give you the sun by Jandy Nelson, The ocean at the end of the lane by Neil Gaiman, Lola and the boy next door by Stephanie Perkins, The little prince by Antoine De Saint Exupéry, Almost anything by Vonnegut, the Lord of the Rings, The changeling series by Elle Casey and many, many others.
I love badass heroines, but heroes and villains too. I feel very strongly about supporting diversity in every form. Be it sexual orientation, race, religion, illness, or TV show preferences.
Among my favorite TV shows are once upon a time, Heaven, Agents of Shields, Twin Peaks, Buffy the vampire slayer, Neon Genesis Evangelion, SAO (sword art online) and many others.
I love manga, comics in general and graphic novels.
I love people.
