About Me

Hi, my name is Eleanor. Me in a nutshell: Artsy-litsy, kinda flitsy, quasi-bohemian. Semi-gothy, slightly crunchy, completely quirky, nature-based, contemplative mom.

Semi-retired from the publishing industry, I now work part-time at a bookstore where I love planning and hosting author events. Crazy customers and eccentric writers are part of my everyday life. I spend the weekends with my husband who is a chef and an artist. Our house is decorated in a pan-Asian style with a special emphasis on Godzilla. We enjoy going to ethnic grocery stores and to thrift stores together. I mostly 'thrift' for art supplies, books, cookbooks on afternoon tea and New Orleans cuisine, vintage needlework, altar items, and Bohemian odds-and-ends. You can find me on Instagram @ thepaperpagan

Favorite Books

Fiction:

I tend to read mostly classic literature and science-fiction/fantasy, though I will usually read a few works by contemporary female authors every year.

Kage Baker, Jane Austen, Sylvia Plath, and Donna Tartt are a few of my favorite authors.

Non-fiction:

My interests are mainly books on how to write, paint, draw, journal, grow houseplants, garden, and meditate. I love cookbooks on afternoon tea, baking, and New Orleans cuisine.

Please Don't Send

I would prefer not to receive classroom reward stickers, Disney, incense, or religious items that aren't Pagan or Buddhist in nature.
