WELCOME ALL to The Amber Typewriter, a place of creativity and critical thinking.
Erica McKeen is a writer of poetry and fiction. Although she is currently living in Japan, she is originally from London, Ontario, Canada, where she received her BA in English literature and creative writing. She writes and reads in the realm of children’s stories, horror, the supernatural, and comic books, her main passion being the fantastical and the psychologically bizarre. McKeen periodically suffers from mental illness, an affliction which influences much of her fiction writing as well as her blog posts here on the Amber Typewriter.
Apart from the more self-explanatory categories of Living the Creative Life, Social Criticism, and Mental Illness, the Amber Typewriter includes Quotations, an ongoing list of quotations from books McKeen has read and is reading; Travel, writing that outlines her experiences in Japan; and 101 Reasons to Keep Living, a bi-weekly blog series focusing on the beautiful things in life that make living worthwhile.
