Something unique about me:

As someone who doesn’t like violence, I’m amazed that I keep re-reading Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler and other works of hers. Check out Lillith’s Brood, Butler’s trilogy centering around an alien species’ interaction with a small group of “preserved humans” about 200 years in the future. Ava Duvernay owns the rights to the first book in the trilogy Dawn”.
