Hi, I'm Auriane. I'm a writer and an artist. My first book, Rebound, is thinly veiled as a sex and dating memoir, but explores the all-too-common relationship between young women, love and alcoholism. But don't worry, it's, like, funny. I have shared several of the stories from Rebound here, on my site, and you can purchase the book HERE.
My second book, How to Kill Your Chihuahua, is a tongue-in-cheek coffee table book about grief, humor, absurdity and friendship. It's also a raunchy collection of rhyming couplets about--you guessed it--how to kill your Chihuahua. Click here to buy a copy. It makes a fabulous gift for anyone experiencing the loss of a pet, or anyone with a sick sense of humor. Bonus points if you qualify in both those categories.
My newest book is called Not Literary. It's a collection of upbeat, funny short stories that I wrote during the pandemic. I was tired of life being so serious, and thought maybe everyone could use a break. If that sounds like you, you can buy a copy of Not Literary by clicking here. If you're more of a listener and not a reader, I turned Not Literary into a podcast, and you can find it on your favorite place to listen.
Currently, I reside in sunny Los Angeles, but I have collected stories from my previous hometowns of Chicago, Nashville and my favorite--Baltimore. Being from Baltimore and spending so much time living in the South has made me a hybrid storyteller. The grit of my hometown makes me a lover and collector of trash. The emphasis on sharing stories in the South has made me prolific. I am relentless in my depictions of the filth I love.
Speaking of things I love, I also co-host The Why Horror? Podcast with the one and only Justin Mayfield. It's an irreverent romp through all our favorite Horror films, with industry profesionals, super fans and even a few scary starlets as guests. If Blood and Guts does it for you, too, check us out. We also do fun stuff for creeps, like in the video below where we went to the Slasher exhibit at LA's Mystic Museum.
WANNA LISTEN TO WHY HORROR?
