Location:New York, United States of America
You can call me Avalon. I've been going by it so long that I'd respond to it on the street just as naturally as my birth name. I'm 32 and living on Long Island, in New York.

Poetry is my oxygen. I need to read it, write it...immerse myself in it. I quite frankly couldn't survive without it. My goal is to become a freelance writer, and besides poetry my work includes essays, non-fiction articles, and even a children's book.

If I could travel to any point in history, it would be the 1920s and early 1930s. I love almost everything about that era, especially the budding motion picture industry. Everything was brand-new and incredibly glamorous. Silent films and pre-Code movies are my passion, as are the stars that made them.

My nose is perpetually in a book. My usual choices are (auto)biographies, non-fiction, poetry, and the darker classics.

I was a practicing Pagan for fifteen years. These days I've returned to Christianity, but am still heavily influenced by hoodoo and Italian folk religion.

And now for some more self-indulgent crap favorites!
