After a particularly difficult year, Majken (pronounced “My-ken”) Selinder Nilsson started writing novels as a way to safely and legally deal with an extremely stressful period in her life, finding during the process that she really enjoyed and had a knack for it. Though becoming an author was never in her plans, it was not surprising, however, as Ms. Nilsson has always had a vividly active imagination, having not only one but two imaginary friends as a child. Even as an adult, her characters come to life in her head and their personal stories often flow out faster than she can type. In just nine months, she had written two full-length manuscripts, including extensive research, and started a third.

By the time she opened the door and saw the words scrawled in blood on the wall, she already knew. Too late.(less)

I would love to experience JK Rowling's magical world of Harry Potter.

As a geographer, though, I have to say that just about every book I read makes me want to travel to the space and time depicted in the story. Oh, to be a fly on the wall during the reign of Henry VIII, for example, or to visit the China described through Amy Tan's eyes, and that's just to name a few.

The secret to any good book, however, is that the author makes you feel as though you are already there. That's where the magic lies. (less)

Trauma and National Infertility Awareness Week- April 24-30, 2022

**TRIGGER WARNING- Infertility, Terminal Birth Defect, Child Loss**

It’s been a long time, strangers! Believe me, though, when I say that it is 100% me, and not you.

Sadly, one thing that the pandemic stole from me personally has been the desire to write as much. (Okay…Full disclosure… at all.) Just as for most of the rest of the 8 billion residents on this planet, the uncertainties and struggl

A story of perseverance and strength…

Such a sad, yet empowering story. The author (and victim) does a great job explaining all of the events that led up to her being victimized by her perpetrator. It is a poignant example of how early abuse by those

“I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and Constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.”
