Czech-American author Birgitte Rasine writes literary fiction that pulls the beauty and the pain of the human experience out into the open by their very roots. It’s raw, it’s resolute, and it’s real. Every story Birgitte writes is born from an actual event or experience and probes the deeper, if inconvenient, truths about the human psyche and modern society.

Compared by many readers to James Joyce and Edgar Allan Poe, Birgitte’s work leaves you doubting whether the ground you’ve been walking on is really as solid as you thought.

Birgitte’s innate curiosity about the human soul and the human experience fuels the fires of her propensity to probe far beyond the usual pleasantries of social relationships and ask the questions no one really likes

I don't get writer's block. I don't mean to be flippant about it, I truly don't. I have the opposite problem: how to turn off the non stop fountain of ideas for stories and books. One piece of advice I have for writers who find themselves not inspired or not sure what/how to write: go for a run. Or a hike. Or a walk. Go have coffee with a friend. Throw a dinner or dance party. Travel the world (or at least your local community). Anything to pump some fresh air into your mind. Computers and social media only dull the senses!(less)

To sleep, perchance to sleep more

Posted on Tue, 10/10/2017 - 13:24




I read about sleep the other day. An article about how much more profoundly sleep impacts our health and well-being than most of us probably realize. I want to share it with you because it's something I struggle with on a daily basis, and imagine many of us do as well.
