Hi, I’m Aubrey Milligan

I’m a percussionist, a hiker, an optimist, and a poetry-lover. And I’m an English major.

To talk about myself is difficult, but here goes (I’ll try not to bore you to tears). Like the rest of you I am an English major, and perhaps unlike some of you I also want to be a book editor. I get a nerdy excitement when I read good poetry or decipher some kind of meaning from and abstract text. I want to write a novel someday; I already have some ideas floating around in my head. Now I just need to give them some attention. I’m very interested in psychology and understanding what it means to be human, and that’s something I want to bring into my own writing. For recreational reading I’ve always been partial to fantasy, but I’m open to anything with a good plot and amazing characters. Thanks to my amazing AP Lit teacher I am now in love with poetry and classic novels and I can’t wait to expand my mental library!

One of my favorite books is Eoin Colfer’s Airman.

I’m in the middle with a couple of my best friends on both sides of me!

When I was little I found most of my learning and entertainment in books. Fortunately, not much has changed since then! I love classics like Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Dracula, Ethan Frome, etc., but I truly enjoy novels of all kinds! I hope one day to publish a novel and be a librarian in order to engender the love of books in as many children as possible!

One of my favorite books is Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights.
