All About Me

About Irina:

Irina G. Phillips is a craft supply, cat addled writer.  A Chicago native, she currently resides on the Floridian coast with her wife to be, four cats, and an excess of books and yarn. Seriously: so much yarn.

Where To Find Me:

Since I often I have my mobile phone set to stun (read as: on silent) even during most of my non-wage earning hours, there are far better ways to reach me than trying to call.

ArchiveOfOurOwn (AO3): I’m on there as IrinaPhillips, because originality is my strong suit… except when it comes to naming things.

Facebook: I’ve got one of those people-page things. Fanpage? I guess. It’s a work in progress, much like the rest of me.

Goodreads: how I plan to keep track of the books I have read. Please feel free to friend me!

Instagram: I haven’t done much, but I shall! Photos and videos are a blast, anyway.

MySpace: because why not? Relics have their place in social media, don’t they?

NaNoWriMo: November 1-30: people try to write a 50,000-word novel. I’m IrinaG on that site.

Personal blog: also a WordPress blog where I kind of just scream into the void.

Tumblr: on the list of things to set up. I’ll get around to it.

Twitter: IrinaPhill in 140 characters or less! One of the more frequent things I post on these days.

Or you can shoot me a message on the Contact Page!
