Books, Horror Movies, True Crime, Paranormal, Writing and Whimsy Carla is: a bookdrunkard. a 40-something with psychology and counseling degrees with post-grad work in grief/loss/trauma, sex crimes, and forensic anthropology. a woman who has lived in three haunted houses. a former freelance journalist and counselor, who is never bored. a disabled introvert who sees connections everywhere--like John Nash, only less math-y. a knitting fidget who loves horror movies with a skewed passion. Like one of her heroes, Harriet the Spy, she wants to learn everything and write in all down (more likely than not in her bullet journal). Join her (and sometimes her friends) in her strange library as she INFJs everything from unused angles. It’s going to get weird in the best way. Let’s play.
