About Avery Rose

I'm a 30-something year old living in my native New York...I adore the city, writing, books, tea, music, long walks and rainbows :) Aaaand What happens to a dream deferred? In my opinion it gets sucked up dry and spat out as a gnarled petrified mass of what the heart used to be...so I'm also coming out as a writer who wrestles with questions of identity, reality, race and even sexuality. I'm having fun finally writing my own story. Feel free to help :)

A Drink of Love…

The other night I awoke from a fretful, uncomfortable sleep. I had tossed and turned almost constantly until I felt like every limb in my body was itching to get up and move. Only, it wasn’t a physical itching. It

The Wolf

There is a wolf lurking in the shadows. It’s been stalking me quietly for a while now. Showing itself in bits and pieces. Poking it’s massive head out and looking into my windows until it was impossible to ignore. Now

A Quirky Goddess

The Wife Hunt: A little Romance, Wit, and Humor

I came across a blog the other day because of a Twitter follow. The Wife Hunt. The premise is definitely something that I could sink my teeth into and sympathize with. A woman is on the search for Mrs. Right.
