Philosopher first. Writer first as well. If one were to ask me “What do you do?”, I would struggle to answer that in just one sentence (or, in fact, at all). In my heart, and at my core, I love entertaining people, and I love to understand things. I would call these my “driving forces”, or my purpose, with “learning” being above “entertaining.” So what I really do is learn. All I do is learn.




A. F. Stewart was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada, and still calls it home.  The youngest in a family of seven children, she has always had an overly creative mind and an active imagination. She is fond of good books (especially science fiction/fantasy), action movies, sword collecting, and oil painting as a hobby.
Ms. Stewart is an indie author with several published novellas and story collections in the dark fantasy or horror genres, with a few side trips into poetry and non-fiction. She has a great interest in history and mythology, often working those themes into her books and stories.


Thanks also to those who routinely share their work on uTube which I was able to use to complete the month... Wow...isn't it wonderful how wonderful writings and words can be shared across the world! Check out the videos this past month if you missed them!

I personally am grateful for these writers since, as you may remember, I had fallen last month and during this month it realized that I was having an allergic reaction to a medication that had been increased...Lots of swelling and loss of mobility because of water retention. You know, when you are on a certain medication for many years, sometimes it becomes toxic and that is what happened. Fortunately, I finally figured out which medication it was an immediately weaned myself off ot it. The unfortunate thing was that I had not remembered that my sister had also had the same reaction, only worse, to the same medication! I share this with you all to help spread the word that when something is changed with medications, it is important for you to watch your reactions and if something is happening health-wise, make sure you consider that it could be your meds that is causing the problem!

I have a little more to share but will do that in another article some time soon...
In the meantime, watch for selections from
coming this month...



Want to stop and get back to a book I'm reading right now! Am loving it!


God Bless,
