Welcome to our Crooked House. My name is Stephany Aulenback. I live in Nova Scotia with my husband David and our children Luke, who is 8, and Sylvie, who is 4. David and I are considerably older than that.
If you are interested in hiring me as a writer or an editor, please visit my professional site.
To contact me about this blog, please email stephka at bellaliant dot net. Crooked House is my personal blog, on which I am bound to ramble and post just about anything. The topic changes but I often post about my kids, our day-to-day life, the books we're reading, and links to whatever catches my fancy online.
I like to read and to write. I also enjoy sleeping and walking, but not at the same time. I am an exciting person but I am not that exciting.
On a good day, I am an agnostic. On a bad day, I’m an atheist. On a really bad day, I’m a total believer.
Luke likes books, computers, and “butterfly’s kisses” although he deeply disapproves of most insects. He loves soccer, video games, gymnastics, and inventing games with elaborate rules. Some of his ambitions are to one day win Wipeout, to design video games, to find a cure for death, and never to leave home. He also muses about becoming a garbage collector.
Sylvie likes singing and dancing, fancy shoes, roaring like a lion, throwing things at Luke, and pushing him over. Also laughing wildly. She plans to be a mother, a doctor, and an actor when she grows up. She will be very busy. She says that's okay, because she likes to be busy.
Some of my writing can be found elsewhere online:
