Vivacia K. Ahwen lives in a small New England town, where stars shine bright, winters rage fierce, and tales loom tall. When not submerged in NA and erotica, Ms Ahwen scribbles confessional poetry, writes lit fiction, creates morbid/mixed media artwork, dabbles in teaching, and lives life to utmost capacity. Her muses include Vladimir Nabokov, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, William Blake, Anaïs Nin, and David Bowie. Vivacia finds renewal by the ocean, throughout the forest, and is well Acquainted With the Night. Vivacia K. Ahwen writes adult novels for HarperCollins UK, which may be purchased on Amazon for Kindlers, Barnes&Noble for Nookers, and A Whole Buncha Other Sites. NOTE TO READERS: Reaching Lily and Finding Lily are written for adult audiences, as in 18+. Not for the faint of heart.
My list is insanely long, so I'll start with my three favorites: Lolita, The Idiot, and 100 Years of Solitude. Read 'em and weep. Seriously. Cry your eyes out, and then go devour everything else Nabokov, Dostoevsky, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez have ever written. Poets? Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton.
“Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.” ~~Erica Jong
