Allie Burke was an author before she told her readers she had been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. The admission led her to write hundreds of publications on the subject, some of which have been published in Refinery 29, Vice Magazine, and Women’s Health. She now hosts a literary society called OCH to give back to the mental health community by offering a space for people to express themselves. She lives with her father and her two cats in Burbank, California.

People are always surprised when I tell them I have schizophrenia. They even go as far as to argue with me as if my doctors have no idea what they’re talking about. “You can’t possibly have schizophrenia,” they say. “I know schizophrenics; you’re nothing like them.” These types of statements make me wonder, if I […]

“She was addicted to literature like some people were addicted to heroin.”
Allie Burke, Emerald Destiny

“What to do with life? Get out of bed, Derek. That’s what you do. You get out of bed, and you get yourself a cup of fucking coffee. That’s all you can do.”
Allie Burke, Paper Souls

“Emily woke to shadows and their voices. They looked different today, because the entire world hurt. The numbness had worn off sometime between sleep and awake, and she was seeing red. The shadows on the walls were not shadows at all, but red blobs consisting of teeth and claws. Her house reeked of pain.

The whole world was fucking bleeding.”
Allie Burke, Paper Souls

“Now, Emily didn't make a sound. There was something more defining about the soundless reality that condemned the paradigm of passion.”
Allie Burke, Paper Souls
