Author of the Month

June: Elijah Douresseau

Author of: Chalkboard Specials, For Those Who Need Shelter Inside

Author - Elijah DouresseauElijah Douresseau hails from South Central Los Angeles. He received his BA in Creative Writing from Colorado College, class of 2013. Elijah loves to play with different forms of storytelling and implement them in new media for unconventional experiences.
He gets his aesthetic and creative juices from the various graphics narratives that paved the way for his books – namely comic books/graphic novels and illustrated novels. He writes for and co-hosts a few multimedia projects, primarily a podcast, Milk and Cookies: Relaxation Hour, and a Twitter microblog project: Bacon Bits On. Milk and Cookies is a comedy and health and wellness show, and Bacon Bits On anthologizes twiction (self-contained narratives as a Tweet; no longer than 140 characters) as a five-part story once a month.
Outside of writing and work, Elijah goes on food-ventures, gobbling up as much food and food-related literature and art that he can – for science. Really, he talks about food like it was the main sporting event to witness the night before. He prefers to concern himself with alimentary matters more often than not. Between meals, Elijah dabbles in collecting and competing in various trading card games and board games, in the hopes to one day be recruited by professional league scouts who think he could go all-the-way.
