I am Alice Swan, first of my name, Queen of my room.

I am a reader, writer, seeker. Also, a broke teenager  [17]. Equal parts self love and self loathing. I spend my time chasing magic between the cracks in the pavement and believing in Camus’ absurdism. I live in India.

I write books mainly in the urban fantasy genre. I’ll be a famous author one day, so that’s something for you to look forward to.

In love with quotes, music, leather and stars. I also use too many adverbs and swear proficiently.

To those of you wondering what the whole “Stones of Rome” thing is about, fret not. I shall explain. It’s from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.

But were I Brutus,
And Brutus Antony, there were an Antony
Would ruffle up your spirits and put a tongue
In every wound of Caesar that should move
The stones of Rome to rise and mutiny.

Because that is what words are capable of. Also, the irony in that quote. #Love
