My earliest and most fervent ambition was to grow up and take my rightful place among the other mermaids.

Then I realized that math would likely be involved. So, in the end, I went to Trinity College at the University of Toronto where I got a BA and then an MA in Political Economy taking great care not to take a single English or Creative Writing class.

“I believe that I am unclean and will harm those I care about the most and that there is too much noise in my head and that I am so goddamned tired.”
Teresa Toten, The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B

“I sweat terror, Robyn! I'm scared every single second about every single goddamned thing. I worry obsessively about being buried under an avalanche of fear. Jesus, Robyn, I'm scared like only the truly crazy can be.'
'But that, you dope, is the definition of courage: you go on despite the fear.”
Teresa Toten, The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B

Kristin Butcher Hi Teresa.

Hope all is well in your world. I haven't fallen off the face of the earth; just left the social network. (It's been a year and a half already.) It wasn't a a healthy fit for me. New book coming out next spring. In the meantime, I'm honing my painting skills. Who knows? Perhaps I can become an illustrator. To catch up on my activity or to get in touch, please visit me at my website: www.kristinbutcher.com
