About Me


My name is Carmen, and as you might guess I aspire to be an author. In the meantime, I’m a university student in Canada.

I’m eighteen years old; about to become a second-year arts student majoring in Cognitive Systems. At the end of this year I will apply to UBC’s Creative Writing program; it’s very exclusive, but if I get in I will continue to take a double major with CS.

I speak three languages (Spanish, English, and French) of which Spanish and English are my firsts. I was born in a town just outside of Boston, and therefore hold both American and Canadian citizenships.

Besides writing, I play the flute and the oboe; I’ve played the flute going on 9 years, and the oboe for 4. I prefer the oboe.

Some of my favourite authors are Kurt Vonnegut, Jr, JRR Tolkein, and Michael Chabon (though I find his work to be hit-or-miss; I loved Gentlemen of the Road but hated The Yiddish Policeman’s Union).

My personal Tumblr is visible here and you can follow me on Twitter here.

All work is my own unless otherwise specified. Please do not repost.
