My name is Alexis, and I am a Storyteller. I have been telling stories since I could speak, and writing poetry, prose, and (of course) screenplays since I was about 8.

My particular passion is writing for the screen, both big and small. I have also completed two novels. I aspire to be a champion for independently created and distributed media and arts. I am especially drawn to Asian cinema and television.

I am a Christian Mystic, dreamer, textbook ENFP (7w8), and all-around super nerd. I enjoy all the arts and deep conversations over coffee and tea...and Boba anything. I currently reside in my desert homeland of Arizona with my dear husband Eric and our three rascally kitties.

Often times working on something else will refresh me enough to get "unstuck" with the previous project. (less)

This was very good but SO. SAD. Wow... like a true tragedy. It went there. We need that sometimes, though. Also, so unique to read a book about the remnants of the Mongolian Empire and how it affected nations upon nations of people.

There aren't enough stars in the heavens to rate this book...how powerful it is...how much the breath of God speaks through it. Makoto's magnum opus....so far. This book is how I survived the past year of global insanity and struggles as a creator. I ...more
Four Quartets by T.S. Eliot
“The dove descending breaks the air
With flame of incandescent terror
Of which the tongues declare
The one discharge from sin and error.
The only hope, or else despair
Lies in the choice of pyre or pyre-
To be redeemed from fire by fire.

Who then devised the torment? Love.
Love is the unfamiliar Name
Behind the hands that wove
The intolerable shirt of flame
Which human power cannot remove.
We only live, only suspire
Consumed by either fire or fire.”
T.S. Eliot

Martin Luther
“Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise. The gift of language combined with the gift of song was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through Music.”
Martin Luther

C.S. Lewis
“But there must be a real giving up of the self. You must throw it away
"blindly" so to speak. Christ will indeed give you a real personality: but you must not go to Him for the sake of that. As long as your own personality
is what you are bothering about you are not going to Him at all. The very
first step is to try to forget about the self altogether. Your real, new
self (which is Christ's and also yours, and yours just because it is His) will not come as long as you are looking for it. It will come when you are looking for Him. Does that sound strange? The same principle holds, you know, for more everyday matters. Even in social life, you will never make a good impression on other people until you stop thinking about what sort of impression you are making. Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.
The principle runs through all life from top to bottom. Give up your self,
and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it.
Submit to death, death of your ambitions and favourite wishes every day and death of your whole body in the end: submit with every fibre of your being, and you will find eternal life. Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will ever be really yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Stanisław Lem
“It’s what we wanted: contact with another civilization. We have it, this contact! Our own monstrous ugliness, our own buffoonery and shame, magnified as if it was under a microscope!”
