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 listen to it by clicking here, instead.
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.
My site is probably NSFW, and if you're easily offended, you've come to the wrong place. Either way, welcome. I have been told that I make Tucker Max look like a pussy (and ew, he's SO rapey, right?) and I'd like to think--if she were alive today-- that Flannery O'Connor and I would get a kick out of discussing our favorite grotesqueries. I cherish the truth, and spare no one in my details. Of course, I don't want to be sued, so names have often been changed to protect the not-so-innocent.
Please feel free to comment on anything, or email me directly. I try to respond to everyone. Especially if you're a Stoli Vodka rep. Seriously. Email me.
