  • About Me

    I was lost. Then I found myself. I died this year, three times. Now I am alive by choice! There is joy in everything I do. So I am returning to Fictionaut to write again because I have become the light at the end of the tunnel for myself. Love love love to all who are reading this!

    Why do you write?

    I write because I am.
    I write because I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
    I write to become the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    My background is in British Lit --from Chaucer to Shaw -- so the list seemed much too long for an online bio. For very disturbing reasons Sybil has been in my home library since 1968. But nevertheless, here is a partial list in no particular order.

    Anything by Raold Dahl
    Bird by Bird ~ Anne LeMotte
    J.K.Rowling: What was she thinking? with this Harry Potter series

    Byron, Shelley, Keats.
    Tennyson, Elizabeth Barrett Browning
    Wm.Shakespeare, my hero
    The Giver by Lois Lowry
    Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
    Ray Bradbury & Isaac Asimov
    Gene Roddenberry
    The 4 Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz
    All of Douglas Adams
    Neil Gaiman

    Lots of non-sci-fi too, which will come to me later.

    thank you, juhi, i appreciate it!

    Jo Deurbrouck – Apr 02, 2011

    Hey Juhi,

    Let's see, what led me to read your long-ago posted story...you commented on a story of mine not long after I joined Fictionaut. I randomly click around in here looking for fun stuff to read that everyone didn't just read, and since your name was there on my profile and clickable, I clicked. And then since you have posted a ton of stuff i LITERALLY closed my eyes and clicked again....and was rewarded. : )

    Thanks so much for your kind, kind comment on "Magritte," Juhi. I appreciate it very much.

    I am so pleased you responded so strongly to Lake Chelan!

    Bill Yarrow – Jun 22, 2010

    Thanks, Juhi, for your kind words about "The Meaning of Life." I enjoy reading your work as well.

    Kristen Tsetsi – Jun 12, 2010

    Hello, Juhi! Thanks for directing me to your poetry. I'm the worst possible person to offer any kind of feedback or input on poetry, but I do enjoy reading it.

    Michelle Elvy – Jun 12, 2010

    And... I am so pleased you like the internal rhymes on my story, X. I played with this a long time, putting it into lines of poetry, then rearranging it again, then back to verse, then this, finally. It was a live thing as I worked it, each story feeling like its own small story, yes. Thank you so much for your comment. It means a lot to me.

    Michelle Elvy – Jun 12, 2010

    Hello Juhi, and thank you for your comment on my flag day challenge piece, X. I have just come to your stories and they are powerful and beautiful, a great way to start my day. "This is how they were found" leaves the images with me, the story and so many questions lingering, I had to fav it!

    Meg Pokrass – Jun 12, 2010

    Hello, i love your bio. It reads like a prose poem... Thank you for your kind note on my story "Pet Loss".

    Jo Deurbrouck – Jun 12, 2010

    Read this in your profile --- "I write because I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
    I write to become the light at the end of the tunnel."


    Robert Vaughan – Jun 11, 2010

    Welcome to the room! Hope you enjoy it tremendously.

    Cherise Wolas – Jun 11, 2010


    A pleasure to meet you here, and through your work on fictionaut. Sunday Morning really affected me. That last line will linger in my head for a very long time.

    Your concept of Sunday Morning - a series of poems - is wonderful. I've been working on my own series - called Things I Should Have Done - and it too seems to be about regret, longing, decisions made and unmade.

    I look forward to reading more.

    Darryl Price – Jun 07, 2010

    We are most honored to have you with us. Welcome.

    Susan Gibb – Jun 05, 2010
