  • 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 which changes periodically. Or not.

    Octavia Butler, all of it. But Xenogenesis trilogy, if I HAD to choose.
    Ursula Le Guin, N.K. Jemisen, Becky Chambers, Ann Leckie
    J.K.Rowling: What was she thinking? with this Harry Potter series

    Byron, Shelley, Keats.
    Tennyson, Elizabeth Barrett Browning
    Wm.Shakespeare

    Ray Bradbury & Isaac Asimov
    Gene Roddenberry
    Douglas Adams
    Neil Gaiman

    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.

    Jo Deurbrouck – Jun 30, 2010

    Congrats on your new pup. I predict your life will be changed for the better. : )
    And thanks for your kind words about my story, "Spring Ice."

    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."

    Nice.

    Robert Vaughan – Jun 11, 2010

    Welcome to the room! Hope you enjoy it tremendously.

    Cherise Wolas – Jun 11, 2010

    Juhi,

    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
