It all started when…

My uncle, who passed away recently, always thought he was quite witty. (He was.) He used to tease me whenever I'd read or watch Jane Austen stories. Pride and Prejudice...Sense and Sensibility...You get the gist. He came up with his own spin on her titles--"Angst and Alliteration." I told him that I’d write a book one day and call it Angst and Alliteration. I haven’t finished a book yet, but I did create this website. And so the title of my website just had to be, of course, Angst & Alliteration.

What's Angst & Alliteration all about?

This site is my writing spot and creating space. You'll find:

  • Original poetry and prose

  • Original photography

  • Bookish Angst book reviews

  • Occasional blog posts about social issues, current events, or whatever is on my mind

New here? Feel free to just jump in and read whatever posts strike your fancy. There's rarely a rhyme or reason to what I post.

I love hearing what other people think, so leave a comment with questions or simply to share your thoughts on a particular text.

New blog posts tend to appear on randomly, so check back for my latest or subscribe to get updates when I publish a new post.

My super-simple book review policy

Do you have a book in mind you'd like me to review?

Whether you're an author, publisher, or reader with a book recommendation, send me the following info about the book:

  • Title

  • Author

  • Synopsis

  • Release date (if not already published)

I'll read and review older books as my schedule allows. New publications will get priority status, and reviews will be posted within a week of the release date. If your review must be published by a certain date, please let me know in your email request so that I can plan accordingly.
