Love & Monsters is a story I worked on when I took my first novel writing class at UCLA. Since I lost my sister to suicide, I've been fascinated with exploring mental illness and providing any insight I can to eradicate the stigma. Love & Monsters follows Heather Bateman, a girl who has suffered from schizophrenia all her life but has only recently been diagnosed. She tries to socially recover from a very public mental breakdown with the help of her best friend Wren and a strange new boy who calls himself Nex.

I'm absolutely loving this so far! Your writing technique is FLAWLESS :D Keep it up please!
Haha risperdal was the absolute worst medication I've been on.
Anna, this is beautiful. Writing could always potentially be a career path for you.
                              
                              I'm so interested in Heather's story right now. I'm so excited to keep reading!
