About Kasia_S

I’m a total book lover; it eclipses all other hobbies, mainly of the horror genre that embraces all the things that make one sleep with their back to the wall. Horror is a lush terrain where the unimaginable happens with furious forces that are no longer dormant in the murkiest nightmares; it all comes alive and hungers for our minds, souls and sanity. Authors who make my heart skip a beat are Graham Masterton, Richard Laymon, Kim Harrison, R. Patrick Gates, James Herbert and Brian Lumley. In my spare time I enjoy art, listening to Juno Reactor, dreaming about deep space, making crème brulee, pretending werewolves are real and trying to dream up the most terrifying tale of all. Amongst my favorite films one can find The Thing, Kill Bill, Conan the Barbarian, From Dusk to Dawn and Dog Soldiers. I am also capable of spending hours as at a museum or a bookstore oblivious to the world outside, I can always be found with a book in my hand and a glimmer in my eye because reading really makes me tick.

My favorite reading is horror followed by a good mystery!! Juicy tales about werewolves, witches, vampires, psycho killers you name it I love it. My favorite writers are Graham Masterton, Stephen King, Kate Christensen, Richard Laymon, Tamara Thorne, Kim Harrison, Michael Laimo, Dan Simmons, Douglas Preston, R. Patrick Gates, Jack Priest, Ann Hood, Brian Lumley, Agatha Christie and a slew of others. I guess it's funny how people think such a nice girl like me reads such barbaric stuff...............I also adore soft classical music in bookstores, touching books, thinking about reading, you get the point....

I'm a huge animal lover, I cry watching nature shows but Horror is my love when it comes to books. I often surprise myself how I love the scary things and movies but am so sensitive when it comes to animals, nothing makes me more angry than when they suffer.

I also enjoy sci fi and catacomb, church and battle of ancient titans style of books, sometimes when I crave a break from horror I enjoy George R.R. Martin, Brian Jacques and R.A. Salvatore.

I also adore fiction, cookbooks, graphic art by Milo Manara, Achilleos, Vallejo, Frazetta, action movies: Hong Kong cinema, costume dramas.

I love music, have been a classically trained flutist and pianist since I was 6, but I do indulge in rock, trance, soundtracks (music not songs as much) electronica, new age ,some pop and I could listen to Classical music for hours every day.

I also love art and drawing, from Egyptian art, Greek and Roman to 19th century, Modern and Architecture. I do tons of sketching and painting in my free time.

Also I absolutely love science, from molecular biology to quantum mechanics, nanotechnology down to archeology, aerodynamics, paleontology
and my beloved astronomy. I would love to go to the outer space!

I attended Pratt Institute and majored in Fashion Design, and that is what I love and do now. It let's me combine many of my favorite things into one.

I love cooking, collecting cookbooks and making home made bread and butter.

I also love nature and animals. I have 4 cats and at any time one of them loves to put a paw on a page I'm reading perhaps they feel jealous of my love for books! They are great reading companions, keep you warm unless they fall asleep on your leg which in turn tends to fall asleep too!

On a side note I'm a fashion designer, I'm 27, and I work and live in NYC.I am originally from Poland, came here when I was 12 and on any night I would prefer hanging out at the library than a club....I know, I know...that's just me...

I get the love for books from my father, he was never without one and I waned to do everything that he did, including martial arts and watching dude movies, so it's all his fault :P
