As a child, C. Streetlights listened to birds pecking at her rooftop, but instead of fearing them, was convinced they would set her free and she’d someday see the stars.

Southern California sunshine never gave C. Streetlights the blonde hair or blue eyes she needed to fit in with her high school’s beach girls, her inability to smell like teen spirit kept her from the grunge movement, and she wasn’t peppy enough to cheer. She ebbed and flowed with the tide, not a misfit but not exactly fitting in, either.

C. Streetlights grew up, as people do, earned a few degrees and became a teacher. She spent her days discussing topics like essay writing, Romeo and Juliet, the difference between a paragraph and a sentence, and for God’s sake, please stop ea

Hi Morgan, thank you for the question!

Yes, I was always a reader as a child. My brother and sister (both older) thought it'd be a hoot to teach me to read before I entered kindergarten and so I learned to read with the Golden Books. Unfortunately, I didn't have the reading comprehension to go along with the reading they taught me, so even though I could read the words I didn't really know what they meant. Still, I was able to catch up quickly.

From that point on, reading became my escape and loved visiting our local library. There, I would check out piles of books. I'm not sure if there was a limit on how many we could check out at at time or not. But I remember each summer they would host a themed reading program where they'd have incentives for how many books kids could read. There'd usually be a small poster to keep track of what books you read and librarians would stamp it when you returned the book. After a certain amount of books you could get a prize.

By the time I hit later elementary and junior high school, I could read several books in a day. They were my one true refuge where I could lose myself and not hear my parents fighting or I could forget everything that was happening around me.

Books truly saves lives and I am proof of that.(less)

It all began with a rock that woke my parents up in the middle of the night by ricocheting against the walls of their bedroom. It would also throw keys and turn the kitchen lights on and off. There were periods of inactivity throughout the years, some months it would be more active with years in between with nothing happening at all. But I do think that with some brainstorming, and time with my siblings reminiscing of our family's ghost, it would be a fun plot to develop.(less)

“After,
you stood there tucking in your shirt,
watching me cry in devastation.
For you, I was nothing.
And I
was nothing.”
C. Streetlights, Tea and Madness

“When the sun rises and sets the world on fire, I will be sitting on the hill facing east. Holding my palms out to it, I'll catch the flame in my hands and I won't let it go out again this time.

I am passion again.”
C. Streetlights, Tea and Madness

“words don’t define me, I define them. I bring words to life. I pull them from the dust, the rib, the matter unorganized.”

In spite of you.”
